Warm Vs Cool Colours

Hey friend, you might this subject is pretty obvious but I would like to talk about the difference between warm and cool colours for a moment. Choosing a colour temperature for a room can make a huge impact on the overall vibe or feeling of the space.

Warm Colours

Wether you’ve gone full earth muffin and made your whole house shapes of browns, oranges and creams, or you’ve got a more boho neutral space, warm colours can make a space seem really inviting. Now warm tones don’t all have to be red or orange, you can have a warm grey wall that will still give you that cozy feeling. Warm greys tend to be white and black mixed with more red and yellow, instead of the cooler blue tined greys. Some very popular current warm tones include rust, terra cotta and ochre.

Cool Colours

The colder end of the colour wheel is great for more modern, clean or sleek interior design. You don’t have to have only white walls to make a space cool toned. For example, having deep blue or hunter green walls would also be considered having cool toned walls. Trending cool tones include grey, mint, and denim.
