Spring is the perfect period for refreshing the interior in which we spend the most time, and the one thing that can directly affect the energy of this refreshment is the choice of colors for the walls.

Beauty is always in the eye of the beholder and there are endless possibilities to express ourselves creatively through the choice and combination of appropriate colors. But, it is also an indisputable fact that this creative process can be influenced by trends defined by experts over the years – from fashion to landscaping.

Colors represent much more than the current perception of the eye and their selection reflects on our emotions and it should be borne in mind that different needs require a different approach to their selection.  You will agree that when choosing the color of a dress or shirt, and if after a while it seems to us that it is not the right one, the degree of flexibility and freedom is much greater than when choosing colors for the walls of the environment where we spend time every day, exchange energy and enjoy with the loved ones. Such choices demand something special from us, inspiration, enough courage, imperishable motivation and primordial strength which is always in our hands.

Right at the beginning, we reveal a secret – the biggest expert in choosing colors for the walls of your space is you and the decision you make in the end is only yours! However, there are many sources of influence that can encourage and empower your decision with enough real arguments to call the space you are decorating perfect. The first step towards an interior decorated according to your wishes can be a visit to a Design Studio and access to a color chart through which you can choose a particular shade that you like and gain a basic orientation of how your interior will look.

By going to the point of sale, you will have the opportunity to choose a realistic shade in the BEKAMENT color chart. There you will, by an expert, and with help BEKAMENT MIX SYSTEM be able to tint the product in your desired shade.

Where do we find inspiration when choosing colors for walls?

Most people spend up to 16 hours indoors every day. This is more than a sufficient argument in favor of the importance of arranging the space, whether it is a home or an office. Be guided by your own needs, get informed, be brave and experiment according to your feelings because that corner is your oasis of peace (at home) and inspiration (in the office).

Large or small spaces

This is one of the main questions when thinking about choosing colors for the walls. The unwritten rule is that smaller spaces prefer cooler and lighter colors, and larger ones prefer warmer and darker ones. It is also important to point out here that the style of arranging the space greatly influences the choice of colors. For example, the popular Scandinavian style wears lighter, delicate colors combined with furniture in more pastel shades.

Highlighting or hiding furniture

If there is a colorful carpet in the space, one of the options for choosing the color of the wall is to find exactly some of the shades that are on the carpet, which will lead to a pleasant harmony. The question that will also be opened is whether certain parts of the furniture stand out or hide in the context of the color of the wall. If you want to emphasize a certain piece of furniture, it is proposed to provide a great contrast of its color and the color of the wall. For example, a good shade of gray wall can be used to effectively accentuate furniture in yellow, blue or orange (picture yellow chair and gray wall).

On the other hand, if the idea is for the furniture to be in the background, combinations like “white-white”, “blue-blue” and the like stand out as the right solution.

Color combinations

If you want to emphasize a certain wall in a smaller space, you can act contrary to the general rule that smaller spaces prefer lighter colors and choose a darker variant that will put that wall in the foreground. The dark gray or black color of the wall will surely draw attention, and the lighter elements of the interior will be more impressive. This way you can focus on the important details and be sure that everyone will notice them. Also, by selecting some of the pastel shades of pink (powder) and green (pistachios) in combination with white, you will create a harmonious space that exudes peace and warmth.  Complementary colors of yellow and purple can bring a feeling of art and energy, while the combination of their lighter and darker shades gives a softer version of the environment.

Since colors are the subject of interest on a global level, we will also talk about the official colors for 2021, according to the choice of the most credible organization whose trends are followed by many industries and prominent individuals.

Pantone Institute is the world’s leader in color expertise. Since 2000, this Institute has been conducting research based on which it predicts trends in the field of fashion, design and home decoration. Their research is based on the question “what colors do you plan to use in the next year”, and the survey is conducted among sellers, designers and manufacturers. And while you are wondering what influences the decision about the color for the walls in the trend for certain year, the answers may even surprise you. In addition to new technologies, materials, textures and effects that affect color, the decision can be influenced even by social networks.

For this year, the Pantone Institute chose two shades and presented them as the official colors of the year 2021. According to them, they are Illuminating Yellow and Ultimate Gray colors that sent a clear message to the world, “strength and hope are everlasting and they elevate us”.

Šta simbolišu Pantone boje u trendu?

Pantone Institut smatrao je da će onima koji se budu vodili bojama za zidove u trendu, žuta doneti sreću. Zbog simbolike optimizma koju nosi, izborom ove boje puštamo sunce u domove da nam donese snagu i osnaži svaki kutak pozitivnom energijom. Iz Instituta poručuju da je ova nijansa toplo žute boje „svetla, vesela i blistava“  a da će njena toplina ugrejati naš životni prostor.

S druge strane, siva boja je oličenje stabilnosti te se sa razlogom našla u izboru boja u trendu za 2021. Ultimate Gray predstavlja čvrstinu, postojanost, ali i, poverujte,  toplinu. Ova nijansa podseća nas da se ciljevi ostvaruju jedino ako ih čvrsto definišemo, kontinuirano radimo na njihovom ostvarenju, a pobedu proslavimo stabilno i smireno.

Ovako udružene boje  vraćaju nas istinskim vrednostima koje prevazilaze boje za zidove. Podsećaju nas na lepotu optimizma koji treba da krasi naše raspoloženje.
