Designers find it to be quite a problematic color. It’s often perceived as girly, so most people reject it immediately and without hesitation. But there are so many wonderful shades of pink that will make your interior look fresh and luxurious! It’s also a very popular choice for nurseries.
|Since blue is a cool color, associated with air and water, it’s often used in bathrooms. Soft shades of blue and navy may also be suitable for bedroom decorations. Turquoise (though it’s not quite blue) looks especially gorgeous in combination with white.|
|Oddly enough, purple increases sexual desire. Therefore, it’s ideal for the bedroom. Purple goes well with modern interiors, especially in combination with grey.|
|This fun and bright color is better used only as an accent. Yellow carpets and other accessories are sure to please the eye, but yellow walls certainly wouldn’t be a good idea.|
|Brown would be perfect for creating a simple, down to earth atmosphere. It’s warm, cozy, and you can’t assemble a rustic-style interior without it. Men especially like brown for its peacefulness and sense of reliability and comfort.|
|Very few colors can compete with green in freshness and vividness. But green can also be remarkably calming and relaxing. Feel free to use it in bedrooms and living rooms.|

|White is an exquisite color, calm and quite reserved. It won’t work for showy vibrant interiors. But it will be perfect for creating a simple, clean and relaxed atmosphere.|
|Black is a very powerful color, which is also incredibly simple and elegant. It’s probably too dark for the bedroom or the living room, but black is an excellent choice for your home office. Don’t forget, however, to add enough light sources to your ’blackened’ rooms.|
|Warm and enjoyable, orange creates a sense of well-being and improves appetite. It will look great in the living room, making your guests feel at home. Kitchen and dining areas will also benefit from it.|
