Beautiful as colours are, displaying them excessively in your interior space may cause discomfort. As a matter of fact, it is safer to design with at most two to three mild shades and match other décor with them.

This is because designing with multiple colours in your interior space, especially a living space, can be unsettling such that it makes the ambience physically and psychologically disturbing.

Implications Of Colours In Your Space
Colour is a powerful communication tool and can be used to signal action, influence mood, and even influence physiological reactions.
  
This is why certain colours have the capacity to strain the eyes, increase blood pressure, increase metabolism and make other effects. So, if in one interior space you have too many loud colours, it might be challenging to breathe in relaxing air. The colours in your space bring your inner perspective into play. Introduction of excessive colours, whether with your upholstery or other interior items, decor, designs and accessories, have the capacity to distort your thoughts.

Playing Safe With Colour
When you’re in doubt with your interior space design colour, settle for at most three of the following mature and safe shades: White, off-white, black (but not as wall paint), gold, silver, sky-blue, cream, brown and chocolate. These shades are not loud, they are natural blenders and matchers that make them stand on their own as well as match with other interior designs and accessories.
