Incorporating Bold Primary Colors Into Your Room

When looking for your next interior design move, incorporating the bold primary colors into your  home will give you a stylistic and eclectic aesthetic. Red, yellow and blue are three pigment colors that are pure, therefore they cannot be made by mixing any other colours, but are mixed together to create all other colors. Red and yellow are accountable for providing the warm colours and blue caters for the cooler colors.

The warm primaries (red and yellow) are hues that are said to advance, meaning they appear to come forward and make the walls feel closer. In their true form, primary colors are often associated with childhood, but they can combine within your interior, creating a well established and sophisticated abode.

Primary Colors used in Artwork

These bold primary colors are the foundations for all colours with the help of black and white, encouraging tone and value. Many of the derivatives from primary colors are used more frequently, such as your grays, pinks and neutrals. However, these bold primaries have recently seen a resurgence. Primary colors have a major impact, particularly when they are used together. These rich and vibrant combinations are used in modern art, pop art and comics. You can often see primary colors combined  with geometric shapes in modern art such as the abstract “Composition with Red Blue and Yellow” created by Piet Mondrian.

Primary Interior Trends for 2021

In interior trends today, primaries can be perfectly suited with richly patterned rugs if you’re feeling a little eccentric and is a great way to incorporate color. Using a room sized rug will bring rich, regal color to a monochromatic living space and pick up the colour throughout. As well as this, bright white and gray tones will create a vibrant and welcoming environment. Both subtleties can create an interior that provokes a true feeling of home. Eazywallz have established that primary colors are an up and coming trend for 2021, so have established some initial primary color designs for all budding interior designers and get your creative juices flowing.

Using the color wheel to choose your color scheme

When looking for a color pattern to follow, many people revert to the color wheel to inspire their colour schemes. The colour wheel is separated into warm and cool colours and displays how colors relate to each other, featuring the complementary relationship between primary, secondary and tertiary colors. Using a colour wheel will help you to develop a color scheme for your next design venture.

These bold primary hues can be used within a room not only as a signature statement wall, but also incorporated in accessories if you want to follow a more neutral palette and still utilize a daring pop of colour. When incorporating the vibrant primary colors into your home try to only use one or two bright hues at one time. This allows you to keep two as their pure hue and mute down the third.

Red isn’t for the faint of heart

Red isn’t for the faint of heart. It is the color of anger, love and passion, allowing the senses to be heightened and create a mood within your living space. Using red on the walls makes the room. Depending on the texture of the room, deep reds can absorb light while brighter primary reds allow for light to bounce off the walls. Red is a beautiful and intense color that can create a serious mood, triggering opposing emotions - anger and danger, passion and love.

When integrating red embellishments, why not try some red drapes?
