HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR PLANTER COLOUR?

Our love for colour goes far beyond the joy of having a colourful pots in our living room. 

We started making pots to suit our needs and match our interior decor dreams and we still follow our own taste and intuition to bring our collections to life.

We've always loved playing with colours: mixing different nuances to obtain the perfect terrazzo mix, composing a special colour palette for an upcoming collection, experimenting with paint in our home or selecting bright pieces of furniture to create a very personal interior.

Choosing a Capra Designs Pot should always be fun and joyful and to avoid any moment of doubt, here are a few things to take in consideration while choosing a coloured pot:

1.  Choose the spot you'd like to display your pot before choosing a plant. 

If you choose your plant first, this may limit where you're able to place your pot and therefore what pot you can choose. 

Examine the course of the sun throughout the day to determine if you're pot is in a sunny place or in darker spot in the room. Do you need a bright colour to warm up the room, like a Golden or a Terracotta, or a more neutral and muted tone, like a Salt or a Fossil colour, to let your future plant be the star of the show?

Is your wall white or coloured? You may want to choose a contrasting colour or in the contrary find the perfect nuance to complement the colour of the room.

 2. Consider using complementary colours.

Having some basic notions of colour combination can help you make the right decision when choosing a planter or any decorative object. Complementary colours are colours that are on the opposite side of the colour wheel.
For instance, orange and blue are complementary.

You can go a bit further by looking at the tertiary colours which include one primary and two secondary colours.
For instance, yellow, purple and pink are complementary.

Having complementary colours next to one another make them pop and look even more vibrant. You can also play with gradients to compose your perfect colour composition.

3. Think about textures to create several visual layers.

Mixing block colour elements and textured objects makes your interior decor very interesting and personal.

If you wish to add textures to your home decor, a Terrazzo Pot will add the tactile effect you're looking for.
