Colors are a way to express one’s emotions. They have a strong and long-lasting impact on our mood. Human mind based on its experience sets in their mind basic colors as a way of interpreting one’s mood. Such as red color is both a symbol of love and anger. On the other hand, the blue-white color denotes peace and serendipity. Also, black color though nowadays commonly used for fashion was a symbol of darkness and horror. These are all notions. But our current generation is going crazy about applying this color-blocking thing from fashionable clothing to the interior design of their residential and office area.
While many of you may think that it’s very simple to compare and contrast two colors and apply them in any position of your interior. But as you may read further you are going to understand that a lot of patience and study is required to give any room the perfect appealing look it desires.
Whether you use it in your clothes and accessory or your home interior the principle remains the same. That is to give the person or walls of the room an aesthetic and eye-catching look. You should feel like looking at it a hundred times still unsatisfied.
Color blocking is a concept that comes from the runways of renowned fashion designers who never lag experimenting with fashion trends. Their aim behind this was to give something new to their buyers to choose them over others.
Color blocking can be defined as the use of two colors preferably contrasting on your house’s interior space or any other object to make it look appealing and unique. While color blocking can be directly applied to your walls, people are now preferring to use this concept taking into consideration the draperies and furniture inside the space.
This simple trend helps you to visualize the space and how it going to look after being painted all over. Some simple instances may include the playful cubed coloring of retail space in tones of blue and its shades will give it a complementary look.
Nowadays besides home interiors, commercial spaces are also following in the same footsteps. A combination of dark blue colored sitting chairs with a plain white discussion table gives an aspiring look to your boardrooms. Even brown color floorboards and peach hue halls give a modern look to grayscale office environments.
Well, color blocking though not necessary is economical and gives you a style statement in the society if used appropriately. You need to understand that not every contrasting color pair is fit to glorify your space.

The rules described below are unwritten in any bible of color blocking. These rules are based on personal experiences and the current trend most liked by the audience. So you may or may not agree with all of them. But we are sure that these are going to help you choose better. So here we go.
While a lot of the general audience may think that choosing any two contrasting colors is going to empower the ambiance of the space. Well, that is a myth we want to bust out. You can use understated and subtle hues to paint both commercial and residential spaces. We don’t think that loud colors are in any way going to add that mental stability that subtle colors can add. They can be a bit distracting from the general theme and purpose of the room.
So even by staying minimal in your approach to choosing the color palette, you can add more life to your non-living room.
Color blocking has a lot of scope beyond being applied to the walls solely. We have seen people making a common mistake of choosing contrasting colors for their walls but completely ignoring the design and color of their furniture and other accessory kept inside the same room.
You may not overdo it by modifying every small thing kept in the room. But the major things like ceiling fans, chairs, tables, and lights on the roof and floor can be considered for color blocking.

If you are planning to give your rooms a dramatic effect, then use complementary colors like blue and orange, red and green, and purple and yellow to add a striking effect
