How to find the perfect color combination for your interior

The days of alpine white walls are long gone. More than ever before, color is almost THE most important theme in decorating. It's not about painting every room a different gaudy color. It's much more about using color tones to convey a certain feeling.

The art is to create a beautiful arch over the entire living area without becoming boring. Of course, this can be achieved not only with wall colors, but also with materials and different structures.

Natural-colored cork gives warmth and comfort, while navy-colored cork leather looks noble and puristic. It has long been proven: Color has an immensely strong effect on our sensation, even on our sense of temperature - supposedly even blind people can feel this. Now you have to define for yourself what you want to say in your own home. What do I want to feel? What mood do I want to convey? Of course, this sounds incredibly complicated and time-consuming, but with a few simple questions and a little preparatory work, the topic of color can be easily implemented in your own home.

1. decide on an interior style

Grab a few magazines and flip through - which style appeals to you immediately and which not so much? Is it the modern industry loft, with a heavy workbench for a table and a rough metal light fixture? Is it more country, with white kitchen and cozy curtains? Quite minimalist in a black & white look? Or rather a cheerful and fun vintage look?
Easy: CORK RUGS you can super incorporate in any style. To the Industry Loft fits an anthracite-colored cork leather Carpet with Geometric Peak embroidery pattern. The best match for the country house is the Natural color cork carpet, for the minimalists fits the cream color Broken Stripe as well as a marine-colored carpet or the Embroidery pattern Mexican Tile. The color olive fits the vintage style quite wonderfully, since rosewood or teak is often used for vintage furniture and - no na - Nomen est Omen: the Minimal Sixties Design must not be missing here.

Industrial? Minimalism? Vintage? There are many styles. Minimalist in its purest form is this plain cork carpet.

2. define the space allocation

Where should there be seating? And where storage space? What should be in the foreground, what in the background? Wall color can be used to bring areas into focus or move them to the back. Rugs can also be used to provide focus and create areas. Under the dining table, for example, is suitable uncomplicated Cork carpet ideal: this creates a clear niche and looks more cozy.

3. choose colors that fit the room

What colors suit the room depends on what materials are used and also how much light comes in. If I have a room flooded with light, I can be bold and choose a dark green for the wall. If, on the other hand, I have a small, dark room, a light mint is more advisable.

Another credo: create repetitions. If you have a black kitchen countertop, then maybe choose the same color for the runner made of anthracite-colored cork leather. You have pillows in different shades of blue? Then choose the rug in a shade of blue as well.

4. decide on a color combination

What helps immensely to not get lost in the color and material jungle is to create a mood board in advance. Look for a maximum of 4 colors (whereby, for example, the wooden floor is already one of them), and now work with these fixed colors. Stick material and fabric samples on it and you see in advance whether it looks coherent and thus harmonizes.

Natural tones can be used discreetly. Cube seat cover in olive
