The color block technique is one of the new trends in the field of furniture. Thanks to a special and innovative use of colours it is possible to create a truly unique contrast of shades. The colour therefore seems to be the real protagonist, especially the full and intense one; the technique consists in combining complementary and contrasting colours together to obtain an original effect and visual impact.
Games of shapes and colours
Color blocking is especially recommended in environments where you can play with colors and geometry. You can choose many almost infinite solutions; the composition of the various elements such as columns, walls, wall units, niches and ceilings will emphasize particular corners of the house and create visual divisions in open space environments without using walls or divisions.
It starts from the simplest shapes to the most complex geometries capable of joining together to create unique effects.
The choice of colours and attention to detail
Every type of interior decoration also requires special attention to elements such as practicality and livability of spaces, not only to 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 former tend to approach the walls, light ones move them away.
A room that is not very spacious can therefore appear larger through the right use of colours 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 will work well in contrast to a darker wood color or light blue. In a fairly large room, on the other hand, you can dare with darker shades such as black in contrast to bright colours that stand out.
Yellow and its shades are often used in the color block technique because they are bright and easily in contrast with many other colours such as blue, green, red, but also with the simpler black and white: basic colours that are already strongly complementary to each other.
This graphic mix of colours is possible in every room; all you have to do is choose bold colours and create your own walls using the colour blocking technique.
Enrich a very minimal environment with pastel shades, perhaps using painting techniques in flat backgrounds with clean, regular or jagged edges using bright colors such as yellow and purple that can alternate in a unique way to create a relaxed and bright atmosphere; play with geometric shapes even on the walls: triangles, circles, squares, diamonds: everything is allowed!
Don’t forget to enrich the rooms with unexpected details that contribute to the game of contrasts: from the brightly coloured curtains to the more elaborate chairs and carpets.
Give vent to creativity also on the ceilings and don’t forget to add colour to enhance niches or corners, perhaps highlighting doors and passageways that separate different but communicating places.
