How to successfully create contrast in interior
You’re looking to create an intriguing and engaging interior. You want something to amaze your guests or clients and have them admire it like no other space they’ve seen or visited. Create an impact by introducing contrast into your environment and enhance an area which will look unique and sophisticated at the same time. Automatically, it will increase the visual interest of your home or business and create the “wow” factor you may be searching for or lacking within the existing interior. Our painters and decorators are here to explore the introduction to interior contrast and what elements can be worked on to complete a space with beautiful contrast and balance successfully.

Play with your shapes
We see many interiors favour one style over the other. Softer and more feminine interiors will focus on curved forms, soft edges and rounded elements while others will only consistently use sharp angles and strong geometric patterns and shapes. This usually is followed by different styles and design of the interior. Now, with a right balance of rounded furniture against sharp architectural detail, you find that distinct factor which will catch your eye and unconsciously make you analyse the surroundings. An interior which does this well is The Wayfinder Hotel by Reunion, creating a contrast of sharp lines, furnished with rounded furniture. It also demonstrates contrast between colour, which is our next topic to explore.
Confident colour contrast
It is to be expected, right? The Good Painter is touching on colour again as our painters and decorators love colour palettes, schemes and every shade of existence. But this time, it truly will elevate your interior into something more. A play with colour contrast will absolutely catch the hearts of anyone looking. It mentally elevates our spirits and can create a killer interior when done correctly. You can create a complementary contrast starting with two colours, or if you feel a bit more adventurous, you may also explore a triadic scheme. Do you have your two colours in mind? Our painters and decorators suggest to keep one colour focus on walls or as a base, and the other to use as an accent and balance with furniture and accessories. This way, you create an inviting interior through painting and decorating, which doesn’t become too overbearing. If you’re someone who is a bit more minimalistic and likes a classy look, black and white works too! Have a try with Canva to pick the perfect colour and see its opposing combination.
Have a feel with texture
In painting and decorating, this can be explored in a variety of ways. The texture is that visual dimension and dynamic when it comes to the interior. As well as a touching, it stimulates the eyes due to the mixing of different surfaces, materials and pattern. Our painters and decorators believe this can be the most exciting and fun factor of contrast within the space. You can explore accessories such as curtains, cushions, throws and finishes as you decide between rough and soft, shiny or matte and smooth of fluffy. Even the smallest of accessories can accentuate the area, little details always count! We love this statement bowl by Fundamental Berlin; its smooth yet appears rough due to the design. There so much you can explore, so make sure you enjoy the process.
