Warm Colors

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Design and Decorating

If you had an exclusively black and white room and you were to add one color, you can entirely alter how the room feels. Color is extremely powerful in how it plays on our emotions, feelings, and energy output in a space. 
 
There are three categories in which we classify colors: Warm Tones, Cool Tones, and Neutral Tones. We will be exploring the positive and negative characters of warm colors and how this pseudoscience can be practiced for varying the overall atmosphere in a room. Warm tones are classified by colors that give a space a more energetic, upbeat vibe; however, if over accentuated, this can imply an overwhelming sensation and give off a negative, harsh vibe. Finding balance with complimenting tones and incorporating a neutral palette can help alleviate these unwanted negative vibes.
 
For more information on Warm Tones, we dug deeper into the three most popular warm tones: red, orange, and yellow. Let’s take a look! 
 
Red
Red is bold, standout color associated with fire. It is one of the three primary colors that cannot be recreated by mixing any two colors together. If you added this as an accent color to a room, you could quickly make a powerful statement. Red gives a room a robust and authoritative feel. Red can be used to create a passionate ambiance in the room as well and generally being directly correlated with heat. When you use too much red though, you can start to amplify this effect in a negative manner. Too strong and bold of a red can begin to reflect anger and danger. Red is also the color we use for stoplights and stop signs because its quick, intense contrary expresses warning. Find a balance when incorporating this color into your home, for a powerful, romantic feel.
 
Orange
Being a mixture of two strong primary colors in the warm tone family, orange is a color which plays off both of red and yellow’s strengths and weaknesses. This is a courageous color which is very inviting. It expresses the strive for success and well-being of others. This caring color is excellent to add to a home or work space to liven up the room, filling it with powerful yet youthful energy. When you add too much of orange, you can topple over into a sluggish, overwhelming atmosphere. Harmonizing with this color is key to creating a friendly, work inviting space.
 
Yellow
Yellow is another primary color. It can be linked to light and the sun. This bright color will pop hard in a room and give a happy mood throughout the room. Adding this accent color to a room will express your originality and intellect. Yellow has a very fun and youthful charm, which can come with caution. Adding too much of this powerful color can spill into an irresponsible or unbalanced look in the room. Primary colors can be dangerous because how powerful of statements they can put on a room but are also fundamentally imperative to creating a confident space.
