How to choose furniture in accordance with temperament?
Choosing furniture for the home (bedrooms, kitchens, wardrobes, walk-in closets, hallways, children’s rooms, etc.), most often, we are guided by quality, functionality, convenience, decoration material and price. But when it comes to choosing the color of chipboard or MDF of the model you like, doubts begin to come to us. And, like, we perfectly imagine the color that will fit the basic color scheme of the room’s interior, and we realize that we really like it, but when we see a mass of various shades, we start to get nervous, and finally get confused.
And if suddenly there is such a situation when the decoration of the apartment has not yet been planned, and furniture for the house needs to be purchased right now? You don’t know what color in the interior will dominate, and you don’t imagine what kind of lighting will be in this or that room? Yes, at first glance, it is impossible to solve such a problem without prejudice to a comfortable and harmonious interior.
It is in this situation that it is advisable to rely on the basic rules of furniture color technology. These rules are not based on scratch, and have been tested for centuries.
The color of the furniture creates a mood, and if the color in the interior (meaning the decoration of the walls, ceiling, etc.) plays the role of the background, the color of the furniture creates the main, visible spots, directing our sensations in a certain direction.
When choosing the color of furniture for home, it must be borne in mind that the overall color scheme can create a huge variety of moods: from sweet bliss to violent rage.
But not only color creates a mood, but your personal perception of this color atmosphere leads to the final result of your state of mind. Your personal perception depends primarily on what psychological type of personality you belong to.
Thus, we can summarize: the color of the interior creates the main “intuitive” background, the color of furniture and accessories, sitting on this background, creates a certain mood that we experience (experience), refracting all these sensations through our psyche in the way our temperament. It is not worth talking about the fact that a person strives for a comfortable and harmonious mood.
