Have you heard about the super cool color trend, color blocking used in interior design? Color blocking, first made an appearance in the fashion world, but today the concept of color blocking is being used by residential interior designers to create fun and creative interior spaces.
The modern interior design color palette is often distinguished by the use of whites, grays, and neutral tones. The use of color is not found as a dominant feature, but as colors lovers we are embracing color blocking techniques to add more dominant uses of colors to modern interior spaces.
Color blocking is the use of bold bright solid colors, or opposite bold colors on a color wheel that are applied to a specific section of a room’s interior. The selected strong hues are applied on all surfaces, furnishings, or accessories that contrast the main color used in the space.
Our residential interior design team has applied this technique in the interiors of our clients’ homes and each space was unique, creative, but cohesive with the use of color blocking. We truly love the results of our design work using this fun design tactic and if you love colors the same way we do, we’re sure you will love the final looks of these spaces too.
This is how color blocking works, to create the strong visual effect interior designers integrate home furnishings and apply colors on to surfaces with a geometric effect. The block of applied color brings to life a cheerful and playful interior; a kind of vibe that only brightly hued colors can bring to a space.
Color blocked interiors are not limited to spaces for kids. Rooms throughout the home such as kitchens, family rooms, dens, and offices can apply a color blocking technique to achieve a lively unique style. Without the use of patterns, a simple color choice makes it easy for anyone to accomplish this style in any room big or small.
