Many of us have the theory that the cheerful atmosphere should reign both in us and in our homes throughout the year. Therefore one should not wait for spring to see beautiful colors in his garden or for summer to feel more energetic.
This feeling can be induced through colorful houses based on tropical colors that introduce a fresh, revitalizing and above all beautiful atmosphere.
A first option is to choose a space in the home where you spend a lot of time and paint a wall or the ones you want, with colors that evoke summer vacations: beaches, forests, sunsets, fruits, or anything else. May it bring you fond memories. And these colors are usually the quintessential spring triadic set: orange, green and purple, in all their shades and nuances.
When you do not want to risk painting an entire wall, in case the result is not what you expected, you can buy a multi-color wallpaper and place it on just one part of it. The rest of the wall will be painted in a color that stands out from the paper. In turn, the furniture can play with the colors that make up the wallpaper, being just one of them or, if you are lucky enough to get it, with the same format.
The choice of color is generally found in the intense colors of the rainbow, also adding the darkest greens that evoke the leaves of the trees and the dark blues reminiscent of the sea. If you don’t fancy such a color display, you can opt for something softer, as is the case with the combination of apple green, pink, vanilla and turquoise.
In turn, the fact of being tropical colors does not imply that it should be a casual environment. You can paint the most eclectic furniture in these colors, as well as cover old-fashioned armchairs and achieve a space that is as formal as it is cheerful.
In this way they will see that when they sit in that space and appreciate that touch that bright colors give, they will feel transported to the most beautiful moments of a trip lived, or of vacations or of the simple imagination of that trip that they always wanted to do. .
