Importance of Color Schemes in Interior Design

Color by Editorial Staff (June 24, 12:43 AM)

Among all the aspects of interior design, color is one of the most important-perhaps the most important elements. A successful interior invariably includes color that creates a strong and satisfying impression. Badly chosen color will make any space, however well planned otherwise, seen unpleasant.


Unsatisfactory color is probably the most common source of failure in interior design. The depressing effect of “institutional green” in offices, hospital rooms, and classrooms is well known. Harsh, random, and clashing color is commonplace in living rooms in which rugs, paint colors, and furniture have been brought together by chance or by separate purchase without thought for color relationships. A room with a rosy red rug, pea green walls, blue –and-yellow striped curtains, a brown leather sofa, and a yellow-and-orange flower print hanging on the wall offers a great deal of color, but it is more likely to disturb than a please.


Changing the color scheme is one of the easiest ways to improve a space. Even if one existing color element is retained, the intelligent selection of new colors for other items will often transform an unattractive space into something much more agreeable. In the room described above, white or beige paint for the walls and new curtains in related, subtle tones might make the rug, sofa, and flower print acceptable b bringing all of the colors present into a better relationship. Color is an important design tool as well as a major element of the designed space. An aspect of color that does not get much attention is its ability to affect space visually. Color can make a small space look larger or can camouflage bad proportions. Color planning involves complex issues that require some study in order to master good color use.

Color planning has, moreover, become surrounded by a certain mystique-beliefs that stand in the way of dealing with color directly and successfully. Too many people, including otherwise competent teachers of design, assert that color cannot be taught, that skill in using color is an inborn talent possessed by only a few people. Others suggest that it cannot be taught systematilly that learning to use color can be managed only through experience.
