Mastering Color Temperature

Inspiration

Color is one of the most powerful tools that can change any space’s look. We’re not just talking about paint colors—though that’s a significant way to help set a mood in a room. But color temperatures you can implement to create an inviting experience. ✨

The use of certain colors acts as a thermostat in our homes. We constantly use terms related to the physical perception of space and the emotional response it incites.

Today we’re sharing our best tips on how to select furniture and decor items in your home based on your preferred color temperature.

warm colors

Warm Palette

Reds, oranges, yellows, pinks, and browns. AKA think of what makes you feel warm and cozy (heat, sunlight & fire) and the colors those things give off.

Cool Colors

Cool Palette

Blues, greens, teals, and purples. AKA think of what makes you feel cool and chill (water, sky, & snow) and the colors those things give convey.

Neutral Colors

Neutral Palette

Not quite warm or cool, but something in the middle. Neutrals include tones like white, taupe, beige, black, and grey. Their use is a critical component for a great design.
