  28. 39. Interactions Between Color and the Elements and Principles of Design Space Texture Size and Proportion Balance Juxtaposition of Colors Light
  29. 40. Space <ul><li>Near colors appear darker </li></ul><ul><li>Colors seem more demanding in smaller spaces </li></ul><ul><li>When selecting a color from a small color sample it is best to select a color several tints lighter </li></ul><ul><li>When a tone is painted on four walls it is much darker than desired </li></ul>
  30. 41. Texture <ul><li>Color appears differently when the texture is differed </li></ul><ul><li>Fabrics with a deep textured surface cast shadows therefore appearing darker </li></ul><ul><li>A dull surfaces absorbs colors and much of the natural light </li></ul>

  35. 46. Applications of Color to Interior Backgrounds Ceilings Paneled Walls Window Treatments Wood Trim Color in Wood
  36. 47. Ceilings <ul><li>If the objective is to have the wall and ceiling look the same the ceiling needs to be a tint of the wall color because the walls reflect onto the ceiling </li></ul><ul><li>If wallpaper is used the ceiling can be a tint of the lightest color in the paper or the background </li></ul>
  37. 48. Paneled Walls <ul><li>With dark wood paneling colors of intense chroma should be used because wood tends to absorb color </li></ul><ul><li>Lighter wood walls should use less intense colors for a more casual look </li></ul>
  38. 49. Dark Wood
  39. 50. Light Wood
  40. 51. Window Treatments <ul><li>If the objective is to have a completely blended background the drapery should be the same hue as the walls </li></ul><ul><li>If you want a contrasting look a contrasting color should be used that is complimentary to the room </li></ul>
  41. 53. Wood Trim <ul><li>The trim is important to the general color scheme </li></ul><ul><li>When painted the trim can be </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Same hue </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Darker shade of hue </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A contrasting color </li></ul></ul>
  42. 55. Color In Wood <ul><li>Each type of wood has a particular beauty </li></ul><ul><li>Heavily grained wood has heavier texture and vice versa for fine grained wood. </li></ul><ul><li>Always use woods in close proximity in grain </li></ul>
  43. 57. The Selection of a Color Scheme Distribution of Color Color Transitions Visual Communication
  44. 58. Distribution of Color <ul><li>Planned color distribution is necessary </li></ul><ul><li>Every room can be enhanced with some dark, some light, and some medium values </li></ul><ul><li>Most rooms are planned around one dominant color </li></ul><ul><li>In commercial buildings dark colors are often used to hide ventilation systems and plumbing pipes </li></ul>
  45. 59. The dominant color is green and there are variations of green throughout.
  46. 60. Color Transitions From One Room to Another <ul><li>When two rooms connect their color schemes should relate </li></ul><ul><li>One color should be carried from room to room </li></ul><ul><ul><li>For example: An accent color in one room is used as a wall color in another room </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Usually flooring remains the same </li></ul><ul><li>Similar ceiling colors are used </li></ul><ul><li>Moldings are consistent </li></ul><ul><li>Accessories help the flow </li></ul>
  47. 61. The same flooring and the same wall color throughout the house
  48. 62.
