The cool colors combined with the white offer a luminous and welcoming result, and even more so if we use the softer shades of blue, green or violet.

Dark cold colors

Although the cool chilly colors are more welcoming and convey more sense of calm, the use of dark cold colors is very interesting. In this case, tend to dwarf the rooms and have a lot of decorative power, so you may need to introduce some white or neutral tones to soften and not recharge the rooms. You can leave the walls white, for example, and use these colors for furniture. Or paint one of the walls with a dark blue and leave the furniture in wood color, with the rest of the white walls.
