Kitchen Claude Monet in Giverny Interior in the style of Pete Mondrian The Rembrandt House in Amsterdam Alexey Eliseev,Manders: - Any project must start with the right composition. It does not matter if you are a professional or an amateur. You need to proceed from those items that already exist or will be exactly in your space - from the color of furniture for example. And then add all the other colors: ceiling, walls, floors and so on. The basic composition should be comfortable and coordinated, and then all you have to do is stick to this combination in the process of repair and selection of paints, wallpapers, floor coverings, light, etc. The best options are obtained when the basic colors of the composition do not differ from each other radically or, in any case, do not contradict each other. Then at the output you will find a balanced result that will link together all the elements of your space. If you follow this simple rule, you will be able to create a great interesting interior.

Manders.ru Your walls do not "go to you" "Disease badFitting room "- a typical coloristic problem of the interior. If you do not like how your skin looks in the bathroom mirror or the faces of friends at the table in the living room, it is most likely to blame for the color of the walls or the shade that it acquires under certain lighting conditions. Most often, this result results in unsuccessful experiments with green and cold gray shades. Our opinion: - To fix this problem, choose warmer modifications of your favorite colors. And if you want a 100% guarantee of good mood after the morning procedures, use shades that know how to "flatter" human skin: pink, peach and blue. Darkness is not for you Include more light thanYou needed before the repair? Try not to read or sit at the computer in this room anymore? This means that the color you chose is too dark for you. Remember that the excess of dark in a small room can make it visually less. Our opinion: - This problem can have several solutions. If you do not want to part with the chosen dark color, try to focus on one wall, and for the rest choose lighter shades of the same tone. Another option - to leave white not only the ceiling, but also the strip near the wall, such a decision "will lift" the ceiling above your head. Finally, glossy and light surfaces of the floor and furniture, textiles, paintings and prints in light frames will help. Alexey Eliseev, Manders: - Underestimation of changes in brightness and temperature of light during the day - one of the typical mistakes of buyers. It must be remembered that the color chosen by you will look different in the daytime dim light and bright sunlight and change even more with artificial light. In order not to be mistaken, you need to make several samples and observe them at different times of day in the illuminated and shaded points of your space. Only then you will be able to correctly assess the color. Such tests are generally a mandatory or, in any case, a very desirable stage of work on wall finishing. Keep in mind that you do not need to sample on the wall, but on separate sheets, for 3-5 options, no more so as not to get confused. Take into account that in addition to natural light and evening lamps on the walls there will be reflexes from curtains or other window decor - and they too can give an additional shade. Manders.ru Brighter than the Sun Guests praise your courage andAre photographed in your living room, you like the view from the cover, but at the brightest time of the day do you prefer to go to another room and pull the curtains, and in the evenings do not include the "top light"? This is a sure sign that your color is too bright for you. He can be both beautiful and original, and combine with all the items and accessories, but personally he does not suit you anyway. Neon frenzy is not for everyone. Our opinion: - Try to leave one bright wall as an accent, and the rest to paint in a less aggressive scale. Thus, the color can be preserved, and the contrast can be reduced. Another option is to choose bright "classical" colors and combine them with natural surfaces and a variety of colorful designs and accessories. Dull house Much more common is the reverseproblem. Have you turned off the TV less often, leave clothes scattered around the room and buy bright books and magazines? Most likely, your interior is too monotonous and the eye wants paint. Usually this happens if the owners have abused white and shades of "melted milk." Live in a house, the palette of which is limited to a couple of three-toned faded tones, quite melancholy. Our opinion: The simplest solution is bright accents:. Another option - the neighborhood of black or very dark brown: next to the carbon color, all the rest acquire additional brightness and purity. The third way is to add an interior of contrast, that is, much darker or more light objects, than the basic scale, but of the same tone. All the colors of the rainbow You have ceased to love the "openSpace "and began to close the door? Do not you like how your corridor looks from the living room? There is a "color claustrophobia". Most likely, when choosing the main gamut, you forgot that the house or apartment is a single composition, but unlike the picture, for example, it is not flat, but voluminous. The main colors in the premises must be combined and harmonized for a comfortable life. Exceptions look good in fashionable hotels, nightclubs and kindergartens. To create private "rainbow" interiors you need the help of a very good colorist. Our opinion: "It's not easy to bring order to the color confusion, but it's possible." To do this, you need to connect the premises with compatible accessories or textiles. For example, paint the mirror frame in the hall under the color of the living room walls or hang curtains in the living room that will echo the bedroom finish. Alexey Eliseev, Manders: - The most difficult to select colors for initial construction or during major repairs. 95 percent of buyers start to choose a color when the preparation of walls for painting has already been done. Hence - most of the mistakes, because it is very difficult to orient in such conditions and correctly assess the color. The perception of color on the object is very distorted. Remember that on a white background of a wall prepared for work, any color or probe will look brighter and darker than it actually is. The color, its tone and brightness will be affected by flooring, furniture, curtains, artificial light. While all this is not there, the color in space will look quite different. If you understand that you can not correctly evaluate the shade, stick to the color composition that you chose originally. And then the chances of making a mistake will be much less. Sometimes, in order to understand how accurately it was possible to select a color, it is required to live in it for several months or six months. And this, too, is not a tragedy. Modern paints are applied easily, but are not too expensive - if you want, you can change the mood of your rooms with the help of color at least every season. Manders.ru In any case, experimenting with paints,Focus primarily on your own taste and sensations, and then on the fashion trends of the season. Not bad to consider the purpose of the premises. Very few people sleep well in the bedroom of the color of the red Ferrari, children hardly want to play in the room of the shade "milk chocolate", and in the gray living room it is not interesting to organize merry gatherings.
