Wind of spring in the interior - colourful design elements accompanied by Architype decors


Spring is in the air! This is the best time to refresh your home, add character and spring energy. Need motivation for a long-postponed renovation? Here is an overview of the most interesting realisations, in which colourful design elements such as furniture, walls or accessories have been juxtaposed with gorgeous material decors from the Architype range.

Colours are back in favour. Soft, pastel tones, as well as vivid and intense colours, work well both as an aesthetic detail and also play a leading role in the interior design.

The psychology of colours - how do they affect our mood?

Have you ever wondered why do you relax in an interior with muted colours and feel a boost of energy in an intense yellow room? Colours play a huge role not only in the aesthetic aspects of interior design, but can also influence our mood. Having this knowledge, we can choose furnishings and fittings for our home that contribute to the corresponding feelings in a room.

  • White colour - gives the impression of freshness, purity, minimalism and simplicity. White interiors allow for relaxation and tranquillity.
  • Black colour - supports concentration and tranquillity.
  • Yellow colour - warm, cheerful and uplifting. Often used for interiors where we need a boost of positive energy, optimism. Excellent for interiors that do not receive much sunlight.
  • Blue colour - calming, has a positive effect on focus and creativity. 
  • Red colour - motivates, stimulates and prevents tiredness.
  • Orange colour - has a similar effect to yellow, plus it helps reduce stress and energises.
  • Green colour - gives the impression of calmness, security, freshness. Aids in stress reduction, making it ideal for relaxing spaces.  
  • Pink colour - has a soothing, calming effect. Improves mood.

Understanding the psychology of colour allows interior solutions to be appropriately adapted to the needs and preferences of the occupants and the functional purposes of the rooms concerned.

Colourful interiors with natural stone substitute elements

Natural stone substitutes such as quartz surface, large ceramic slabs or acrylic solid surface are some of the most versatile and durable materials that are available for use in interior design. Their high durability, resistance to moisture, stains and mechanical damage, variety of patterns, colours and textures make them an excellent choice for both classic and modern settings. 

How can we exploit the potential of quartz surface, large ceramic slabs or acrylic solid surface when we want to combine them with coloured elements? Here are some useful tips! 

  • If you're using stone with a distinctive, eye-catching pattern, it's worth considering muted shades for the other elements to avoid the impression of chaos. 
  • If you want intense pink walls or blue furniture to play the first fiddle in the room, choose stone decors with muted, subtle patterns. Opt for one dominant colour accompanied by neutral shades.
  • Contrast with accents - to add a touch of dynamism to your interior, have one or more accessories in a contrasting colour. Cushions, vases or plant pots work well in this role. 
  • Use the right lighting to accentuate the texture and colour of the stone, but also to highlight colourful accessories. 
  • Play and test! Interior design is a process that requires experimentation and adaptation. Don't be afraid to test different combinations of colours, textures, patterns and finishes to find the perfect composition for the room. Most importantly, the result should be a cosy, functional, comfortable interior.
