The Color Block technique is one of the new trends in the furniture field. Thanks to a particular and innovative use of colors it is possible to create a truly unique shade contrast. The color therefore seems to be the real protagonist, especially the full and intense one; the technique consists of combining complementary and contrasting colors together to obtain an original and visually striking effect.
Games of shapes and colors
Color blocking is recommended especially in environments where it is possible to play with colors and geometries. You can choose many, almost endless solutions; the composition of the various elements such as columns, walls, wall units, niches and ceilings will emphasize particular corners of the house and will create visual subdivisions in open space environments without resorting to walls or divisions.
We start from the simplest forms to the most complex geometries capable of joining together to create unique effects.
The choice of colors and attention to detail
Each type of interior decoration requires particular attention also to elements such as the practicality and liveability of the spaces, not only to the chromatic harmony.
Precisely for this reason, before choosing the shades you prefer, it is important that you know that dark colors give a different optical effect than light ones, in fact, while the first ones tend to bring the walls closer together, the light ones distance them.
A room that is not very spacious can therefore appear larger by the right use of colors that can create different volumes thanks to strong contrasts such as pink with blue; or even bright red that can be highlighted with light tones that recall those of wood.
A duller green instead will be fine in contrast to a darker wood or a light blue. In a fairly large room, on the other hand, you can dare even with darker shades like black in contrast to vivid colors that highlight the intensity.
Yellow and its shades are often used in the Color Block technique because they are lit and easily contrasted with many other colors such as blue, green, red, but also with the simplest black and white: basic colors that are among them already highly complementary.
This graphic mix of colors is possible in every room; all you have to do is choose bold colors and create your custom walls using the color blocking technique.
Enrich a very minimal environment with pastel tones, perhaps through pictorial techniques in flat backgrounds with sharp, regular or jagged edges using bright colors such as yellow and purple that can alternate in a singular way to create a relaxed and bright atmosphere; also plays with the geometric shapes on the walls: triangles, circles, squares, rhombuses: everything is allowed!
Don’t forget to enrich environments with unexpected details that contribute to the game of contrasts: from brightly colored curtains to the most elaborate chairs and carpets.
Give vent to creativity even on ceilings and don’t forget to add color to enhance niches or corners, perhaps highlighting doors and passages that separate different but communicating places.
