What colors should be matched with light parquet?

When you visit a house or an apartment, the parquet floor can be a real reason to decide to invest the place as it can bring cachet to the room. So once it's home, you might as well put the parquet that you love so much in value. Clear parquet is a real trend and we find it in many new interiors, but do you really know what colors to associate it with? Here are our tips for a tailor-made decoration for your parquet.

Neutral colors: the Scandinavian spirit

This season's flagship trend, the Scandinavian spirit goes hand in hand with clear parquet. What pleases you is to skillfully marry pure lines and design with the warm atmosphere of wood. And since you already have light wood parquet, all you have to do is add the refined spirit. For this, we put on neutral colors for both the walls and the furniture. You can of course opt for pure white but can play on slightly warmer tones by adopting off-whites, creams but also darker colors like taupe or even gray. Try to stay in the same shade range or bet on a shades to guarantee you a beautiful harmony. Know that the purer the chosen color, the more the atmosphere will be design.

Touches of pastel colors: a soft decoration

Evolution of the Scandinavian style, the hygge trend takes Nordic design as a base and adds pastel tones, very trendy again this season after a summer when they were particularly appreciated in fashion and decoration. You will therefore understand, with your clear parquet, you can claim this Scandinavian variation. You will adopt for this a white base for your walls and underline the whole with pastel touches. You can paint an entire wall in pink, blue or pastel green, but you can also settle for a few strong accessories like a sofa or a painted canvas. It all depends on the dose of color you want. Know that you can multiply the colors but avoid mixing more than three to keep a beautiful harmony.

Dark walls: a taste for contrasts

Contrary to what one might think, a light parquet does not necessarily mean that you have to stay in light colors for your walls and decoration. On the contrary, you can absolutely take the advantage of playing with contrasts by adopting darker colors for the rest of your rooms. You can then choose gray, dark blue or even black to create a chic masculine ambiance or a neo-boudoir depending on the choice of your furniture. Know then that the light parquet will allow you to benefit from a warm atmosphere which will be ideal to create a decorative cocoon. You can even dare a dark color in total look on the walls to assume an enveloping decor that will not lack of breath thanks to your parquet which turns out to be a real decorative asset.
