The so-called public spaces are on a building is usually the spaces with users of space activities that are routine and uncertain. Users also are fixed space (according to the duties and functions), so that the necessary facilities will be standard both size and shape, such as schools, hospitals, saki, and others similar. Also, for practical and economical.
Imagine if the residence is treated the same as we treat the spaces of a general nature earlier. All walls painted the same color (eg white), all furniture made of metal or plastic for easy cleaning, weather-resistant, heat resistant and not easily damaged. Kok was like being in a hospital huh? Want a practical, economical, effective but not human.
Well, because home is where the inhabitants live off all the physical fatigue, thoughts and emotions then of course the things that will affect the fatigue-fatigue above must be eliminated.
Usually the forms of furniture that is too stiff, hard and monotonous will make the spaces in the residence to be memorable stiff. So you should not be placed in the house (unless it wants to have a house with rooms that reflect the arrogance and keep a distance with his guest). Select only the forms of material made from natural materials (wood, stone, cloth, etc.). Apalagai chairs in the living room or family room is not necessarily the same shape, can be several forms and materials are selected and placed in the living room, as long as there remains the unifying elements that make a stay in harmony / harmonious with the overall space.
Back again to the matter of choosing the color, is fine white vote to give the impression of vast, bright, and clean, but some are more human touch that will make an appearance space seem more intimate and touching. For example, choosing colors for the seat upholstery, decorative pillows, curtains, tablecloths, table covers, lamp armature, carpet or floor coatings, and others.
As for private spaces, you can experiment with colors you like. For example, you can not impose to dye your room or your children with bright colors which, not necessarily because they like it. Pick a color they like, but you also must be smart not to use colors which "shade" as the color purple because it will make their willingness to learn to be reduced.
Furthermore, in terms of choosing complementary accessories room, choose accessories that you and or your children like but do not jeopardize your safety and they, for example motives simple but attractive, such as flowers, geometric patterns with the pattern size is small. Avoid choosing furniture with sharp corners, etc.
