Absolutely colorless, it’s not home at Marianne Hafskjold in Son.
Occasionally the color palette appears, like the lime green stool in the ceiling and some blue touches.
But mainly covering white ceilings, walls and floors.
Play with gloss
– White is not boring, advises the interior designer.
– If you use color on all major surfaces, it becomes an almost sacred feeling in the room. Play with white shades and achieve stylish effects. The gloss reflects light while creating frames.
Check in box
She emphasizes that solid white gives sense of space and heights.
She likes to use high gloss in the ceiling and silk mat on the walls.
If you use shine on walls, walls and floors, you wipe out the differences, and the result will be a velvety box.
A silk mat wall and a 80 degree brilliance make the room brighten the room. Contrast is created even though the color is similar.
– The white color is an excellent framework for most interiors. It’s perfect to use on large surfaces, but get the excitement with rough contrasts. A table, a chair, a painted painting or some fabrics.
Coloring in the interior creates depth. Strong contrast colors are sure winners along with white.
What is actually white?
White is actually the absence of color. Colors occur when lights in different wavelengths hit the eyes.
Simplified, we can say that the brain perceives different wavelengths as different colors.
When the light hits a surface, this will reflect some of the waves and absorb others, the result is the impression of color.
When all light is reflected, we get white when all light is absorbed, we get black.
At the entrance of the interior designer, the floor consists of small, round rocks. A white staircase slopes up to the second floor.
– The steep floor is a rough contrast to the clean surfaces. A white environment becomes immediately more exciting when you vary structures and materials, “says Marianne Hafskjold.
This is egg white
Most people know the bestseller for decades; egg white. It is recommended on time and expire to create a neutral base in the world. But what’s really egg white?
– All colors have a code that shows the mixing ratio. Eggehvit has got the code NCS 0502 Y, and the y-one says it’s broken with yellow .
You can get it with different yellow tones, but it always has warmth.
Marianne Hafskjold says we can not see the color blurreds with the naked eye, but along with other colors in the interior, the shades come forward.
For example, a red chair appears in the white color.
It’s just as easy to learn the letters first as last. You will not be surprised after the paint is dried.
Note the letters: Y (yellow), R (red), B (blue) and G (green).
– If you choose strong blue as a contrast color, use white paint broken with blue. Pure white can be perceived as cold, but it is beautiful. You just have to be aware where and how it is used.
