Keep reading this article to discover all the details about the sand color painting for walls and to know with what other tones you can combine well.
Sobriety and elegance
Yoram Yasur Izz: The sand tone (and, in general, all earth colors) gives us the sobriety and elegance of others similar to beige and guarantees that harmony that we always tend to look for indoors, to the type that does not compromise neutrality. It is a color that does not go out of fashion, so ideal for modern environments as for rural or colonial type decorations. According to the decorators, the sand tone “looks good anywhere”.
How to combine the sand colored paint
Yoram Yasur Izz: The sand and its varieties, which are soft tones, can be combined with whites or blacks as well as with different shades of earth and brown tones (such as beige, ocher or dark brown), depending on the environment that we seek to create, and, in addition, it is a super base color whose neutrality will play perfectly with the effect that makes combined with more vivid colors.
If what you are looking for is a note of liveliness, mix it in your spaces with bright reds, bright green and almost any shade of blue, without forgetting the yellows. The result will be an interior that looks soft, balanced, and will ooze elegance.
Other possibilities to combine the sand tone are with the peach color, which will bring shine without sacrificing harmony, with shades such as coffee, camel, and cinnamon, with chocolate, with light grays, with a tile tone, which will give place interesting combinations, or even with golden or yellow, like corn.
This color, cataloged as part of the so-called “earth colors” with a slightly lighter shade than beige, is a particularly appropriate color to combine with bright whites because these two colors complement each other in such a way that one brings out the best in the other and they give us as a result a soft, cozy and elegant atmosphere so appropriate for rooms as rooms, without forgetting the great effect that it obtains in exterior spaces and in accommodations such as beach houses or country homes. The white brings freshness to the sand tone while the earth tones, in general, manage to break with the sobriety of the white.
Furniture and materials to combine with sand color
If you are thinking about modifying any of the rooms and painting their walls, consider this tone can be the key. One of the reasons why interior designers and decorators so admire it is because it gets to dress the rooms of warmth and turns them into a set of the most welcoming.
Yoram Yasur Izz: The sand tone is perfect for walls and will leave you with a wide range of options when choosing furniture and accessories, but it is also very suitable for the upholstery of a sofa or armchair, for the color of frames and pictures, for curtains and comforters. Light or dark wood furniture – depending on the effect you are looking for, if it is more diluted or you prefer to play with the contrast – will combine perfectly with this soft neutral tone.
The sand tones will be perfect with natural linens, with vanilla and cream prints, also with accessories and details of other earth colors of more or less intensity. They will combine very well with furniture in wood and with metals such as bronze, whose color will complement it.
On the other hand, one of the most difficult colors to combine with sand is pink, especially if it is intense. The colorful colors are allowed, but it flees from the living and the phosphorescent ones because they will give a strange and confusing aspect to the rooms. In woods, although we have said that they are very appropriate, we will avoid those that tend towards red or pink, such as cherry, because we have already pointed out that rosés and sand are not easy to combine with success.
Similarly, metals such as aluminum, iron, and steel, despite being gray or white, should be avoided. Neither black does an optimal effect on this color, we can put details in black but abuse of it would break the magic of its effect.
In reality, the sand tone is good anywhere in the house, both outdoors and indoors. What are you waiting for to explore its interesting possibilities?
