There are several elements that interfere in the decoration of an environment and can make it more harmonious and cozy - one of them is the use of cool colors. These are shades that give amplitude to the space, as well as refer to calmer and more relaxing environments. If this is your proposal, be sure to check out the details below.

What are the cool colors

The three basic cold colors are blue, green, and violet (purple or purple), with the others coming from a mixture of them.

  • Green Green means vitality, health, and hope, and is associated with the environment and ecology.
  • Leaf green This tone of green brings coziness and is directly related to nature, which is why, in decoration, it can work well in proposals such as a kitchen full of plants.
  • Water green This is a variation of green mixed with blue, forming a shade that reminds us of water. Widely used in babies' rooms and doctors' offices, this shade reminds us of both tranquil and healthy environments.
  • Baby Blue Easy to combine and totally adherent to all kinds of environments, it is a good bet for various spaces in the house, such as bathrooms or kitchens.
  • Blue It is generally used in the decoration of the most varied spaces, favoring intellectual and creative exercise. It is ideal for formal environments, such as offices, or even for children's rooms, due to its calming effect.
  • Royal blue : a shade that refers to royalty, this color is stronger and favors environments that have a more elegant and chic concept.
  • Violet Violet can be understood as a shade of bluish purple. It looks good on details such as pillow prints or bedding, since it is a darker color.
  • Purple Purple means spirituality, magic, and mystery, and is directly linked to the mystical world. It is appropriate for a meditation room since it stimulates the spiritual side.
  • Lilac Formed by the mixture between blue and red, lilac is a delicate and cool tone. It is generally associated with empathy, maturity, and extroversion.

Now that you know what each color will convey to the environment, check out some proposals on how to use each one of them in different spaces.
