The kitchen and dining room allow using both bright warm tones. And for noble calmness – you may choose various shades of green or colors of a natural tree. If you aspire to a full transparency, it is possible to make white kitchen.
Bedroom – is the empire of soft tones. If you dream of a meeting with the partner you will enjoy bedroom in peach or light pink tones. In any case you should avoid registration of great volumes of red, bright yellow and bright orange (differently it will be difficult to fall asleep) and black. Dark blue, dark-violet and dark brown is also very dark for bedroom. We also recommend you to avoid grey (in order to prevent depression).
