Transform Your Home with Colour Blocking

Have you ever heard of colour blocking? When it comes to interior design, if you’re a fan of vibrant palettes and retro colour schemes, you’re probably going to want to learn more about this incredibly innovative, aesthetic technique.

What is colour blocking?

Essentially, colour blocking can be described as an exploration, taking colours from two opposite spectrums of the colour wheel and pairing them together to make interesting or complementary colour combinations. It is one of the many approaches you can use to add character to your space and make your home more visually appealing.

Originating from the world of fashion, colour blocking was used by designers to bring vigour and zest to clothing that otherwise seemed too bland. This concept has transitioned into the world of interior design to accommodate preferences for vivid colours, stronger contrasts and livelier perspectives, and is currently a prominent design trend in Singapore.

The colour blocking technique is made up of the mixing and matching of two or more colours for accessories, accents or even painted walls in bold colour blocks. The end goal is to create spaces that are more engaging and the point is to ultimately have fun with the enjoyable process of working with multiple colour combinations.

There’s only one golden rule for colour blocking; the spectrum of tones used must be bright and pleasing to the eyes.

Single or multiple walls

Colour blocking can be done through painting on a single wall or different walls in a single room. As long as the look and feel are in accordance with the rest of the space’s theme, you can get creative with colour combinations in one corner of the room to add a sense of vibrant personality to the space.

Paint the top side of a wall white and add shades of blue to the bottom part to show contrasts in colour. Colour blocking can also come in handy when you’re trying to segregate two different sections of a room, separating walls in different areas with shapes.

Colour blocking on floors

Colour blocking can also be applied to transitional flooring of your home to differentiate sections according to different functionality. This is especially handy when you’re dealing with an open space layout. Colour schemes can direct the eye and visually organise areas in accordance with what they are used for.

If bright combos are too vivid for you, select subtle hues for a monochromatic colour block effect, which goes well with industrial interior designs.
