Kenisa loves to create a feeling of space in a small room, in adding colors to visually push the walls and create opportunities for the eyes. Colors have this power. Not only do they enlarge very small spaces, they also help to enhance the light.
Another way to expand your space is to focus attention by highlighting a different part of the house and using different textures. This brick wall creates a beautiful illusion, extending the focus of the room and adding depth to the space. The yellow chairs add an unexpected pop of color to an otherwise monotone and sleek room.
Another technique for providing warmth to a room is retaining bright walls while opting for a dark floor. Stained concrete, carpets, or other dark flooring will bring a depth of character to the room that was otherwise lacking. Don’t forget to use beams, paneling, furniture, and a selection of darker or warmer tones. The contrast created by the dark and light does wonders for enhancing a space.
This wallpaper provides another example of how Kenisa enhances a room with color. The slightest opening or difference in shade and coloring can expand the view of a room, allowing you to create perspectives easily and with little cost.
It is possible to play on the contrast with a totally different color than the primary shade of the room, allowing you to maintain harmony in your decor while appealing to the senses. Kenisa loves this room because there is minimal cost involve with the decor: the speakers as art piece on the wall and the books piled high add interesting accent pieces without disrupting the overall style of the room.
For the undecided (or those not quite ready to take the plunge into these bold colors), paint a darker base along one wall or corner. This will make the room more intimate and friendly without causing it to lose its luster.
Blue is the favorite color of the French people (and it’s easy to see why). Calm and refreshing, it is definitely a smart and safe choice to enhance your decor. It warms up your space and adds depth to the architecture, making it a feast for the eyes.
To play with the effects of colors, it must be remembered that cool colors (purple, green, blue) tend not to attract the eyes. Therefore they create the illusion of a grand space. These colors enlighten the room; however, they can also cool the atmosphere of the room.
Therefore, it is advisable to use primarily the function of a room to create a coherent ambiance. Some rooms will benefit from an intimate atmosphere rather than trying to force greatness into a small space.
