The perfect colour combination of walls with furniture colour is not as difficult to make as it may seem, so don't worry about it. If you follow our adviser, the room will look stylish and modern with just 4 steps.
1. Furniture evaluation
The starting point for choosing a wall colour should be your favourite piece of furniture: an armchair, sofa or wardrobe, or the colour of that piece.
Furthermore, do not use the same colour for the walls, but a little lighter or a little darker, to avoid the room acting in a monotonous fashion and merging everything in it. If the furniture is colourful, choose a colour that is dominant on the wall, or the colour of less striking furniture details.
If you have the courage, a good combination can be to choose contrasting colours for the walls compared to the colour of the furniture.
The point is that the colour of the furniture is related to the colour of the walls, but not too obvious.
2. Room assessment
For who knows which time we will repeat the old rule: use brighter colours for smaller rooms and darker ones for larger rooms. This is true in principle, except that in a small room, a striking, darker wall can be a very interesting detail.
If your furniture is darker, consider the idea of painting one wall in the room by imitating that darker shade of furniture and the remaining walls in an appropriately lighter shade.
It is also a good option to emphasize recesses in the walls or bulging columns with this striking colour that matches the furniture, leaving the rest with neutral tones.
3. Combining colours
If you have chosen a colour for your wall that fits in with the furniture but are in doubt that it may be too striking or exaggerated, you can combine that colour with a muted tone of the same hue so your walls and furniture will be consistent.
Use a lighter colour on just one wall as an accent, or use it as a border, or try combining one lighter and darker shade to create horizontal stripes, using crepe tape to get perfectly straight lines.
4. Complete your room
When the walls are painted according to the basic furniture, add the rest of the furniture and place the artworks that match or contrast with the basic colours.
Do not refrain from mixing styles and patterns a little, as the basic colours will keep them connected and harmonized, thus creating a unique atmosphere in your own home.
