The living room is the room where people are most often found during the daytime, because this is where they spend time with friends, guests or relatives. The main task of the owner is to create a warm and cozy atmosphere, which can be realized by combining wallpaper of two colors.
The combination of wallpaper in the design of the room can not only emphasize the furniture, but also place the right accents that will attract attention. With the help of two colors, you can zone the space, divide it into functional zones.
It should be noted that when creating a stylish and practical interior of a hall or living room, you need to choose the right colors for combination, and preliminary preparation is also necessary.
The basic rules for combining that must be taken into account without fail:
- Decorative elements should match the main color.
- You need to decide on the type of texture.
- It is necessary to choose a picture, pattern and ornament that will decorate the wallpaper.
- We’ll have to think over the right combination of wallpaper and their color with the decor in the interior and furniture. Curtains should be in the same tone as the wallpaper.
Once a clear picture of the future interior has been drawn up, you can start combining wallpaper. Now designers offer several ways and techniques for creating combinations of two colors. It is best to initially think over the entire interior in all its details. The more carefully the design is thought out, the more successful the final result will be. It is better to deal with the combination of wallpaper after buying furniture and the main elements of the interior, since the wallpaper should not only be harmoniously combined with each other, but also emphasize the overall style of the room.
The most original option will be the correct combination of contrasting colors of different textures and textures. You also need to focus on the compatibility of the color palette so that the interior is perceived organically and «did not cut» eyes. If you choose the right color palette, then you can successfully zone the room, the presence of reliefs that can be used will be a positive point.
It is not always easy to select wallpaper in two colors, however, many manufacturers offer special catalogs of their products, where there are selections «wallpaper neighbors». You can rely on the proposed options or come up with something of your own, thus expressing your individuality, emphasizing the taste and uniqueness of the owner, the originality of his thinking. You can also find photos of ready-made options, choose the best one. If the room is small, then you need to take this into account, use colors that can visually increase the dimensions of the room, raise the ceilings or «push apart» walls. For this effect, it is better to use light colors and small drawings, because thanks to them there will be more space and light, which means that the room will seem more spacious..
Dark tones, on the contrary, will make the room smaller; they are best used in spacious halls or living rooms. Also, the use of an accent wall will be a good idea, thus, 3 walls will be in light colors, and the latter will acquire dark colors in order to diversify the interior.
By the way of pasting
Wallpaper can be glued in different ways, which one is decided by the owner himself, it can be both horizontal and vertical, abstract or zigzag. It is important in this case that the final result suits the owner of the home, and the harmony of the design is holistic..
- Combinations vertically or horizontally.
- Create an accent wall with a brighter, more contrasting color or pattern.
- Wallpaper inserts that are decorative.
Depending on the drawing, the same room can look completely different. For example, for polka dots, abstraction or floral prints, it is better to use stripes, which can emphasize the appearance of the wallpaper, its originality. It is best to combine striped wallpaper with ordinary plain canvases, which are close in color. It is important not to oversaturate the interior of the room, to have a sense of taste and moderation, because you need to combine patterns correctly: if a combination of two completely different ornaments is used, then the effect is unlikely to be successful.
Initially, you need to choose one favorite color that will be used in interior design. After that, you need to find him a successful «couple», what will complement or set off the main color and harmoniously combine. The combination must be carefully thought out, after which you will make sure that this particular option is optimal.
Methods for combining material by color:
- Using two shades of the same color (for example, beige and brown, pink and red, light blue and blue). Such duets will create a luxurious and warm atmosphere, make home comfort as pleasant as possible for perception..
- Applying two pastel colors on a different palette.
- A pair of complementary colors. These colors should be located opposite each other in the color wheel. A successful combination would be blue and orange, yellow and purple, or red and green. However, it should be noted that this option is not very popular, since such bright colors create a strong strain on the eyes and not everyone can tolerate it..
It is not only possible, but also necessary to create an interior using patchwork techniques, because it is stylish and modern. The gluing technique can be different: chaotic, classical, chess. Fragments can also be of any shape: abstract, triangular, square.
With such a wall decoration, it is important to focus on the advice of designers, for example, using the classic method, you can use arbitrary patterns, colors and patterns, but with unusual types of combination, you can use a maximum of 3 types of patterns, it is best that they are similar to each other.
Highlighting niches and protrusions
Many living rooms are faced with such a problem as the presence of protrusions or niches, which is considered a disadvantage when planning housing. It is difficult to hide such flaws, and sometimes even impossible, but they can be emphasized and made virtues.
It is best to paste over a niche with wallpaper, which is several shades darker, thus, it will be visually deepened, which will attract attention and be interesting in appearance. In general, the combination of wallpaper in two colors is the creation of an original design, the possibility of zoning space and expressing one’s own «I AM».
