Despite the fact that Petrol blue is a cool colour, the colour can bring a lot of warmth and atmosphere. Petrol originates from a combination of blue and green. This combination causes everyone to describe the colour Petrol differently. From deep blue and greyish blue to sea green.
Combining the colour Petrol
If you are going to use Petrol in your interior, it is good to know in advance which atmosphere you are going for. In most cases Petrol is a contrasting colour. The basic colours with which you combine Petrol can have different effects.
Do you want an industrial look? Then combine the colour Petrol with black, steel and metal.
Do you want a cosy atmosphere? Then combine the colour Petrol with earthy tones such as terra, brown, old rose and yellow ochre. Wood, reed and gold are also a good way to emphasise the warm colour in Petrol.
Petrol blue wall paint
The most obvious way to incorporate the colour Petrol into the interior is with wall paint. You can choose to apply Petrol in sections or in panelling. This way you make a statement without the colour feeling too heavy.
Wall decoration in Petrol blue
A fun way to incorporate Petrol into the bedroom is with wall or surface coverings. By using wallcoverings, you give an extra chique look to the colour Petrol. Here are some examples of the types of wall decoration:
In the bedroom, it is also a fun way to incorporate Petrol into the headboard of your bed. Headboards can often be ordered separately, both online and in a physical shop. You can also choose to work with the old headboard yourself. Buy a beautiful Petrol fabric and apply it to the headboard yourself.
A Petrol blue sofa
If you are not yet sure that Petrol is the colour for your interior, you can easily tackle it with a statement piece of furniture. Think of a large Petrol sofa, a beautiful Petrol chair, or kitchen chairs with Petrol seating. This way you can make a big statement with a small change!
