Color is a very powerful resource to create environment. And knowing the sensations that each one transmits, what is called color psychology, is the first step to choose well and make the space pleasing. Getting the right dose to use is another sensitive issue, but knowing rule 60-30-10 helps.

It consists of choosing a protagonist color or dominant (60%), a secondary color (30%) and a third for the rest of the room (10%), which is also called an accent, and which usually put the accessories. The reason why the aforementioned formula is successful is this: the primary color attracts the eye, the secondary color adds interest and the final one stands out from the previous ones.

Rivers of ink have been written, never better, about the color in the decoration. Information abounds in the press and on the Internet, and yet most of them seem like a complicated issue. As a valuable ally we have the color circle or color wheel, which represents the primary colors, red, yellow and blue, and their combinations to create all other tones. This circle is a tool for understanding the relationships between colors and getting it right. Add that light, both natural and artificial, is key for a color scheme to work, because it affects the perception of colors. It is also convenient to pay attention to the novelties since, perhaps among the trendy tones that are launched in decoration, the crush arises and the favorite color is found. This year dominate two according to the Pantone Institute, the Rosa Quartz and the Serenity blue. Do you want to expand this information?
