The soul of the house dwells in colors. They have the power to inspire, motivate, cheer, reassure and promote a range of other emotions and sensations. Therefore, the choice of paint colors for the walls must be very well planned so that the maximum benefit of the chosen color is obtained, after all it is good to take into account that an inadequate color can cause an effect contrary to the expected. The first thing to be analyzed before choosing the paint color is to define the style of the environment. For clean, neutral, modern and Scandinavian-style decorations, light and neutral colors are the most recommended.

For a rustic style decoration or a more stripped-down and youthful proposal, vibrant colors are the best choice, as they combine with the environment and will give it an incredible touch. Pastel tones on the wall are also welcome in the case of decorations that follow a retro or romantic line, for example. Once the decoration proposal has been defined, pay attention now to the room where the paint will be applied.
For rooms, especially for children, the tip is to use light and neutral colors in order to favor relaxation and sleep. Colors like yellow or orange can be used in rooms, but prefer the softer nuances to give that cozy and relaxing touch.

The next point is to match the colors of the walls with the rest of the decor. In that case we recommend that you have a chromatic circle in hand to guide you in your choices. In general, the tendency is for three combinations: complementary, analogous or monochromatic. The complementary colors are those that are opposite the color chosen in the chromatic circle, remember to carry the chromatic circle always to help you in these situations. For example, the complementary color of blue is yellow and its closest shades, such as orange. In the case of red, the complement is green.
Complementary combinations can be made on the wall or on the furniture. A blue wall, for example, can be complemented with an orange sofa. Analogous colors are those that are immediately next to the chosen color. For example, the analogous colors of green are blue located on the left and yellow located on the right. And finally there are the monochromatic ones which, as the name suggests, are the nuances of the same color, now you understand the importance of the circle? This type of combination is also commonly known as a gradient or tone on tone.
In addition to these three possibilities of combinations with the colors of the spectrum, there are also neutral colors. These, by the way, are the most used in house walls. The list includes white, black, gray and shades of beige, also known as Off White. After defining the style of the decoration and the way the colors will be combined, you are more than halfway to defining the right paint for your walls. Now just take a look to see what suits you best and matches the house.
