These days, luxury villa designs have begun to attract my interest. The villa, which is known as “Villa Paprika” and which is usually rented for holiday, is really admiring. These villas do not have to be designed in very large areas. These villas have a design that is shiny but not ratty. They usually have furniture and design that reflect simple but expensive pleasures without being overwhelmed by intense light.
When I see these villages, I start to think that I need to vacation and some rest.
For this reason, I will refer to the concept of “Villa Paprika” in order to inform you in this article.
We can also have a home decor that reflects more artistic and expensive pleasures by using the furniture and designs that we will sample in this article in our own homes.
After mentioning the general details, I will now talk about the concept of “Villa Paprika” in more detail.
Usage of Plain but Not Cold Color Tones
First of all, let’s take a look at which colors come to the forefront in the decorations of these villas, as I’ve been referring to the importance of colors in design for their own world many times. The golden yellow is undoubtedly the color of luxury and art. However, a color that has so much been introduced into the eye has begun to disappear outside of Arab societies in recent years. At the same time, this gaudy decoration remains outside the concept I will talk about here.
Of course, you can use bigger chunks with a decent look and a gorgeous look, but using these huge chunks in this concept formula is a bit old fashioned. Instead, lamps close to the tones of the fire that keeps the light as dim as possible are preferred. Illuminations that often mimic the candle light and look like a candle from the outside are very common.
The Importance of Lighting
Using partial lighting systems that emphasize the importance of the decoration instead of a uniform lighting will strengthen the effect of your decor in your room. Instead of a single light source with a high candelabrum placed in the middle ceiling of the room, it would have a more textural effect to use a small but scattered light in the room.
I saw many night lamps placed in front of windows in many Villa Paprika houses to illuminate the room in the daytime in the evening hours. The first question that comes to mind here is why the daylight is not using at this evening time. However, they often seemed to prefer their own lighting, and I could not find it in research that made a clear answer to this questioning.
Dark Shades and Decorations
Let’s keep on detailing the overall color design of décors. I explained why the bright yellow color is not suitable even though it is the color that comes to mind first. So, what colors are preferred instead of this bright yellow? Full white is a simple and noble color. The use of black or dark brown colors is a logical choice, with furniture being white, fine details such as carpets and pillows, contrasting. In fact, these white decorations are not compatible with only black or dark brown, but all the shades of dark colors have a chance of elegantly laid out.
However, since white is a color that needs constant maintenance and is very dirty due to unwanted external factors such as dust, I should point out recently that it is trending to beige color and tone. A proposition that is white, but gray may be wrong. The color of gray color is cold and it should not be used as a main color in home decor. White may be good with warm colors or outdoor blue tint and its derivatives. The first suggestion in this regard is that the beige color of the decor has close tones because the lighting can also be used in the tones of the yellow. I said unsuitable for gray, but rarely you can see a dirty pink tone or a warmer tone close to the gray. I cannot say wrong about choosing this color, but personally these tones still carry the cold feelings of the grain over them.
As the seats will determine the main color, if you consider the above suggestion, it will be easier for you to decide colors and tones in other details such as carpets and curtains.
Usage of Different Colors and Green Leaves
In all the decorations I examined, I did not come across a warm tone that was used in a momentary, small area called the explosion color tones other than the general tones. I do not know if this happened by chance. The only exception is that green and large leaf ornamental plants are included. Even the big green, like the Christmas tree, were very harmonious with the yellow tinted lights on them. It is really nice to use wide-leaf decor to make the design and decor a bit flashy.
The use of small leafs interspersed with catalog shots should be entirely to your taste. But do not see yourself with a broad spectrum of choices in color here. Even with small details, an incongruous decor can distort the look of the entire design. If you want to see a crunchy red hue, the only exception to this is that you may have a dress in your room, and those who see it know that the dress is not actually part of the decor.
Although I usually like designs that have as wide a color scale as possible on design and feature colors, I have to point out that I agree with the designers on keeping color scale small in “Villa Paprika” style designs.
Dark Decorations and This Décor’s Compatibility with Other Details
We talked about the white and the tones. What kind of preference should we find if the situation is just the opposite? So you can decide if you want your seats or your furniture to be black. In this case, how much is white required for other details? The answer to this question is not an easy answer to the contrary. When you use black decorations, you must make sure that your room is absolutely spacious and has enough space.
A Small Exception
However, we can add an exception here to the other color constraints I make for white designs, which is that red roses really bring a noble image in the black décor. In the picture below you can also see what looks great on black furniture.
Tables and Some Others On the Wall
Another important detail that comes to my mind right now is that I have to add here that the tables on the wall seem to have gotten so much from the limited color scale. In almost all cases, you can see that the tables have black and white images. The only exception I can add here is that, as an exception that can be allowed in red roses, a photo of sunset close to the red can be used. However, keep in mind that you will not always have a successful impact.
Wall clocks or mirrors should also be suitable for decorating. But you can use huge mirrors or heavy wall clocks here. Instead of leaving the wall empty, it would be much more logical to add a small decor to the wall.
Adding Glazed Decors
Glazed decorative products may find usage area for themselves in these decorations provided they are transparent, but be careful with the use of glassware as well as the simplest designs as possible, since the crystal-look coarse glass designs can lead to a crunchy appearance.
Decor and Color According to Villa’s Position
If the villa has large windows and a general landscape view from the outside is reflected in it, then you may want to pay attention to the appearance of the decor. The villa by the sea or the door to the large pool, the hall may have decorations that can be decorated with open-air rather than warm yellow tones. Or it seems to be more appropriate to use a heavier leafy flowers in a villa surrounded by greenery. If you have a villa with a city view at a high point in the city, a simpler design should be preferred to the stubbornness of the city.
Feel More Free
Nevertheless, if you want to design villa decorations, do not feel too restricted. Each artist has different ways of expressing his or her personality and it is possible to go beyond the general bases I have mentioned here. Yes, it is very risky and difficult to get involved, but you cannot be afraid to put it in the middle of an orange vase after securing it to your tastes, or you may not hesitate to hang a blue painting to the wall.
