Best colours to create warmth and calm
hayeskmjSeptember 4, 2013
Hello, I'm trying to create a warm, calm feeling reading room. The room is quite small (about 3.3 by 3.3 metres) with brushed aluminium sliding door and large louvred window. could you please recommend colours? I've been thinking about something with a tinge of green.
Thanks a lot

I feel green is cool. The paint finish and other design elements will all play a prat in creating a warm feeling. Soft blue is relaxing or cream like Benjamin Moore Plaster of Paris in a Matte finish is also a great soothing neutral

Green is calming but is also a cool colour. Warm colours are on the other side of the colour wheel. If you choose very soft tones all will be calm so you could go for a soft buttery creme as the wall colour add textured seating throws and feather filled cushions. These can be in any soft colours from the warm side of the colour wheel, keeping the main seating neutral.
