It’s time to bring out the interior designer in you, now that you’re on the way to building your dream home!
Having gone through numerous house and land packages, display homes in Perth and looked amongst dozens of home designs, you’re going to want to leave an imprint on your house when you move in – and that means choosing colours that work for you.
If you’re new Perth home builders, here’s a selection of colours that can influence the mood of your dream home, and how you can use those colours to make a statement.
Have you ever walked through display homes by Perth home builders and thought to yourself, ‘How do the designers pick these colour schemes?’. We’ll let you in on a secret – it’s all about the meanings behind the colours. If you’re keen for efficiency, you can cut through the clutter and noise with deep blue. Darker shades of blue also help with bringing sophistication and confidence into your life as the colour’s characteristic depicts nobility and prosperity, as seen in our Capecove display.
Home builders and their interior designers know the psychological effect of green is very calming, balancing, healing and relaxing. Because it’s the primary colour in nature, it corresponds with life’s riches, and now that you’ve gotten your first home owners grant, your riches have come to life – so use the green to show it off! Green is the colour of fresh starts and growth, and will encourage you to honour your unique talents and manifest them. It works especially well as an accent on furniture, trims, doors and stairs. Home builders in WA love using green in display homes, just have a look out our award-winning Tropicana display.
The colour of love is also one of calming and sedating, symbolising romance and intimacy. Home designs in Perth thoroughly enjoy incorporating pale pink onto walls as they are a hot colour trend, but can be a very dynamic element when paired with a bold complementary colour, like deep green. Use your favourite shade of pink in a room when you are trying to increase understanding, and if you don’t want it on your walls, use pink candlesticks or rugs like we have done in our Iconic display.
Purple is very sensual, and lighter tones like lavender and violent help to create a romantic scene. Darker purple invokes feelings of dignity, wealth, mysticism and magic. While deep rich purples are regal and noble. Use them in your home to enhance compassion, and if you want to enhance your dark coloured cabinetry, an eggplant-purple will do just the job. Even simple purple accents like throws and cushions make a difference, as seen here in our Harmony display.
Light blues give a sense of peace, dissolving tension and promoting tranquillity. It brings ease into the home and harmony into relationships. Surrounding yourself with light touches of blue, whether on the walls or in your accessories and trims, to help calm aggressive tendencies and eliminate discord. Try a light blue painting, cushions or knick knacks just as we have done in our Harmony display.
Red is a dominant colour, but you don’t have to be afraid of it. If you’ve walked through display homes in Perth, you’d have noticed accessories like red lacquered chests, red trimmed coffee tables, or paintings featuring the colour. Did they catch your eye? The key with red is to find a balance because it’s a stimulant colour, and promotes courage and fearlessness. A little bit of it goes a long way – try a red lolly dish on the kitchen counter, picture frame or accent pillows. Or make a statement with exposed red brickwork, as seen in our Iconic display.
