Creating mood with interior paint colour

Why do people paint their rooms and building walls? Certainly there is a technical aspect, especially for outdoor painting. But, just as certainly, the technical aspect has seldom or never been the primary reason for painting. The effort to paint has risen from an urge to satisfy both human and divine needs, and from a desire to create beauty, status, illusion and why not ? advertising! Here are many different interior paint ideas you'll discover that can be used to add style, and change the look of your interior.

Interior paint ideas are all about being creative and you can be as creative as you wish. Plus, you shouldn't have a problem when it comes to controlling your budget. That's because most of the materials you will need can be acquired for a small amount of money. However, you should remember that although interior paint ideas do not have to be expensive, creating your designs with them, can take quite a bit of your time.

One of the first and most important things to remember about interior paint is that it isn't only about decorating walls at all. It's about creating an environment suitable for the activities going to take place in this place ? either eating or working, reading or socializing, etc. In this context paint is a very inexpensive and easy way to spruce up the interior of any room, but you must first know the condition of your building walls, how to choose the paint colour and the amount of paint needed. That is because the condition of the walls determines the amount of paint needed and the finish, while the right amount of paint needed requires a skill and should be purchased carefully. And what is most important ? paint colour has a profound effect on our mood.

Some paint colour professionals say that ?Color offers an avenue into a person's mind. It can capture a mood or experience, or help project an image?, but still ?It's not just about a certain color conveying feeling or emotion, it's about how our lifestyle preferences can be reflected in the colors we choose to surround ourselves with.? Thus, it has been stated that particular colors have different effects on each individual. Response to a color may be influenced by a number of factors such as the body's need for a specific color, a sad or happy memory associated with a color, etc. Some colors make you want to get out of your chair, others make you want to nestle down and read. Some colors are articulate and must be listened to. Others are very quiet. Since choosing color is such a personal decision, not everyone approaches it in the same way. While some people know exactly what colors they prefer before making a paint purchase, just as many don't know how to determine what colors suit them or the environment they wish to create. Following are some of the most typical responses to various color groups that will guide you to creating a perfect paint palette:

Neutral colours - These colors create a sense of peace and well being. They foster quiet conversation with family and friends and can dispel loneliness. In addition to colors in the neutral group are colors associated with sea such as sand, shell, coral, pearl, stone and seaweed.

Playful colours - The foundation of this palette is white. This could be anywhere from vanilla ice cream to snow and winter moon. Then comes the bubble gum pink, buttercup, wintergreen, all the berry colors and crayon colors. Many of these colors will be cool, and even in lighter tones there will be brightness and clarity. The bottom line in creating this type of palette is that the colors should suggest a sense of freedom, play and downright fun.

Formal colours - These colors will command respect without being overbearing. Grey is a color which promotes creativity and will often be found in foundation of a formal palette, but its shades will be warm and gentle. Some tones of blue suggest communication and trust, so it will naturally be found in the formal palette. Red also appears here, but the shades will be earthy and complicated burgundy or cranberry.

Refreshing colours - Like neutral colors, they also begin by getting in touch with nature. The first group of colors considered in this palette is warm or cool green. Because they have the power to help us adjust to new environments, skillful designers use lots of plants and other forms of green.

Romantic colours - Many species including the human beings attempt to attract the opposite sex with colors. Red is the color of lust and is often called the most romantic of colors. It is no accident that red is the chosen symbolic color for the Valentine's Day. In interior paint, however, a less intense, softer tone of red is far more conducive to romance than the pure hue. Often referred as pinks, these colors vary from cool to warm and from light to dark. Pinks have an interesting quality that seems to halt the body's ability to stay angry. Purple is another color which is definitively romantic because of its passionate, unpredictable characteristics. Pale, or less intense tones of orange such as apricot and peach are often included in the romantic palette, suggesting purity and innocence. Blues in the romantic palette will be cool and inspired by water.

However, no matter of which ?colour personality? you may choose, it's important to remember that there are no trends in color as important as your own personal style. Today, most designers mix colors and trends together to create unique personal spaces. The most effective color palettes reflect and enhance interests, collections and activities of the people who live there as well as some basic architectural features.
