Tips for using colors in decoration and facade

Here are some interesting ways to use colors and recommendations:

Consider painting the ceiling

Black and white bedroom color paint style

If you want to use one of the colors in your decor, consider painting the “fifth wall”. The ceiling in a different color can be visually interesting in the room layout. In some spaces, it is even possible to use graphic patterns, such as stripes.


Bedroom with contrasting paint colors to make space appear larger.

An interesting tip to make the space look bigger is to create sections in the wall painting. Use two colors in the composition, aiming for contrast at the top. This strategy is super hot and has the power to make the ceiling higher. Other techniques combine two or more colors on the same wall, such as the ombré wall. The result is a gradient composition, super modern, sophisticated, and daring. So consider this trend when painting your house.

Geometric painting

The geometric painting technique is a decorating trend that matches modern homes. It can be put into practice in the living room, bedroom, kitchen, or any other environment, enhancing shapes such as triangles and circles.

Style appreciation

Home with architectural style.

The chosen color must be able to enhance the architectural style. Neutral and light tones, for example, perfectly match a modern construction. These soft colors can be explored not only through painting but also through bedding with stones, such as canjiquinha. In the case of a property with a rustic style, such as the country house, it is worth working with earthy colors on the façade.

Get to know the feel of each color

Each color conveys a kind of feeling and has a special meaning, at least that's what Feng Shui says. White represents infinity and emptiness. Lavender renews the feeling of calm. Pink is the synthesis of love and tenderness. Red is a stimulating color, as is orange, which fuels creativity. Yellow has the power to stimulate the mind to the fullest. There are also green and blue, which are colors directly linked to well-being.

Consider maintenance

When choosing colors for home, keep in mind that the most intense and striking tones wear out more easily. The color loses its strong tone over time, especially when applied to the facade of the house. What did you think of the house color trends for the year 2024? Leave a comment with your opinion.
