For warmth and coziness, you could choose colors that are in the red-orange-yellow color family. Some of the colors that you can work with include coral, marigold, salmon, and pale daffodil. Try to obtain swatches that illustrate these different shades to help you decide on what colors to choose. Think of beaches and sunset, of warm afternoons and tropical paradise. Using these colors or others in the color family, you would be able to achieve a warm glow and radiance to your entryway.
Using the color wheel, you could play around with different possible combinations. It’s recommended that you work with three different shades of color: two of these should be within the same color family, and the third one a complementary shade. Shades that are within the same color family will serve to add depth and intensity to the room, while the complementary color will provide an interesting accent. A possible combination you could try out includes pale daffodil, matched with deeper orange, and accented by sky blue.
