Color Scheme Interior Design

Interior Design Color Schemes

Color can set the tone for a room or space, making it seem warm and relaxing or active and exhilarating. Color can also influence your mood and impact your energy level.

In a well-designed space, colors will complement or intentionally contrast, but never clash. All of the colors will work well together, creating a sense of order and harmony, not dissonance.

Interior design colors tend to fall into two categories, warm tones and cool tones. Warm interior design colors are: red, orange, and yellow. Cool interior design tones include blue, green, and purple.

While it might seem easy to pick a color palette for interior design, it is not. In part, this is because of the different tones and shades that exist for every color. Just ask anyone who’s had some part of a design project turn out “not quite right,” and, more than likely, it’s because the colors were off somewhere.

As interior designers with extensive experience, we have a trained eye for “what goes with what” and what will look good.

In choosing colors for interior design, we consider these factors:

  • the look and feel you prefer
  • how the room will be used
  • the amount of natural light that comes into the room
  • complementary colors (colors that might be opposite each other on a color wheel, but look good together)
  • analogous colors (colors that are next to each other on the color wheel)
  • color values (the lightness or darkness of a color)
  • color tone (which is achieved by modifying a color with the addition of black or white)
  • color saturation (the brightness of a color)
