Winters are here and Paint we’re still housebound thanks to a never-ending lockdown! Let’s just assume we’re going to spend all our free-time in the foreseeable future curled up on the couch or relaxing in the comfort of our bedrooms. You will need a home that feels like a warm hug!
Designing a cosy and warm setting begins with a fresh coat of warm paint colour on your walls! From vibrant shades of red to neutral earthy hues, there are a myriad colours you can choose from to warm up your space with just a few coats!
Here’s a lowdown on different warm paint colour ideas for your home.
Hello Yellow, You’re A Warm Paint Colour
The most classic of all warm colours out there is yellow! After all, it’s the colour of sunshine. However, yellow can be an overpowering colour for certain areas of your home. Choosing the right shade of yellow depends on the area or room you are planning to paint. For bedrooms, we recommend you to stick to a lighter shade of yellow, like pastels (think butter fruit yellow), as darker shades can be too bright for space where you are supposed to relax. Whereas, in a dining area, family or living room or even a kitchen, brighter shades of yellow like gold, amber and mango are perfect, as these spaces need all the vibrancy and energy they can get!
A Lovely Red
This colour of love might appear too much to take in at first, however, you must know it has a broad range of tones you can choose from. Red is a stunning colour that can change the look of any space. If you like the brightest shade of red, apply it on an accent or main wall. Pair it with a lighter colour like cream or white on the rest of the walls for this lovely shade to stand out. Also avoid painting an entire room in red as it can be too overpowering. If bright red is too over the top for you opt for deeper shades such as maroon. This shade is an excellent pick for your walls and can lend a sophisticated look to any space you use it in!
Effortless Warmth With Earthy Brown
What’s warmer than the colour of mother earth, right? Brown is an excellent warm paint colour that is also a neutral colour. Now this is a perk because neutral colours such as brown can be paired with other colours effortlessly. Shades of brown range from delicate beige to a deeper coffee or cocoa. These shades can be used in any room in your home – living room, bedroom, dining area or even kitchen.
A Tang Of Orange
From warm amber to a subtle peach or bold neon peel, orange is a colour that can dazzle any space! A bold orange wall brings in warmth and energy to spaces. An orange wall can be easily paired with accent colours like gold, copper or even white. We suggest you pair a feature orange wall with white ceilings to balance the space. The duo of white and orange creates a positive atmosphere. If you are still not convinced with the idea of painting your wall orange, do remember that orange is the colour of nature and nothing can be warmer than a touch of the outdoors or autumn right inside your home.
Apart from painting your walls in with a coat of warm paint colour, you can use these colours on your upholstery (cushions, curtains and rugs and sofas), wall art, and decor pieces for a cohesive look.
Pairing warm paint shades with neutral colours such as white, beige or cream or even cool colours such as blues, you can design yourself a space that is cosy and inviting. Also, a great combination of light fixtures like pendant, cove, focus, spotlights, lamps or modern chandeliers will help light up your place to perfection.
