Cold Colors vs. Warm Colors
As the name says, it is the colors that transmit or not the sensation of heat. Imagine a line
dividing the chromatic circle in half. The warm colors are red, yellow, orange and close tones
like pink. The cool ones are green, shades of blue, purple and darker shades like navy blue and
brown. The colors of warm houses make the environment more lively, energetic, while the
colors of cold houses make the climate more cozy. You can choose the colors of cold or hot
inks according to your preference.
