How to Choose Paint Colours to Create a Cosy Environment in Your Home

on December 20, 2017

Nothing compares to the feeling when you get back to home after a long day to unwind in a warm, cosy space in your home that just makes you feel right.

Paint is an easy yet effective way to set the tone and atmosphere of a room as you want it. By paying attention to the psychological effects of various paint colours, even a cold and uninvited room can be turned into the most intimate, comfy space.

Paint Color

Get inspired from the following paint colour ideas to up the much-needed cosiness factor in your home.

SUNNY WARMTH

  • A soft, elegant shade of yellow on the ceiling can give a comfy, welcoming feel to an otherwise neutral room.
  • Whether you opt for a soothing whipped-butter shade or pick a vibrant lemon tone, a splash of sun-touched yellow in your room can bring the cosy side up.
  • For walls painted yellow-apricot, add dusky lilac or spring green trim.
  • For pale-yellow walls and ceilings, go for ivory trim.

HUES OF GREY AND BROWN

For a room to feel cosy, paint colours don’t necessarily have to be from warm pallet. When reflected in multiple shades around the room, cool and quiet shades can also help to create a sense of intimacy and warmth.

  • Paint the walls between wooden plank floors and a white ceiling, grey. To bring out the deeper version of the walls, incorporate a pewter-coloured upholstered sofa and a sisal rug under the sofa to compliment the darker shade of the brown wooden floor.
  • To present some more shades of grey and brown in the room, consider adding walnut or maple end tables in front of the sofa, charcoal bookcase around the corner and wooden picture frames on the wall. If there’s still room for a few shades of the same colours, you can place a small wooden table behind the sofa holding a white lamp with a ceramic base.

RADIATE WARMTH THROUGH RED TONES

  • Fiery red walls reflect warmth and comfort while creating a dramatic look.
  • Accommodate elegant antiques and imposing white bookcases with enamelled red walls and ceiling and gilded white trim.
  • For an extra dose of warm elegance, add velvet upholstered sofa with brocaded chairs featuring geometric patterns.

Go ahead! Incorporate these paint ideas to create the ultimate snuggle zone in your home to unwind and let all your stress out. Moreover, do give your walls a fresh coat of render before painting them any colour to bring the best out of your paint colours and make it last longer.
