At MVM, informative tips on colour design and detailed advice on materials are, so to speak, a preliminary “freestyle” before we get down to the “duty”, i.e. the practical execution. First of all, we clarify the areas of application for which you would like to commission us, i.e. exterior walls and facades or living and working spaces. Then we discuss with you what effect you want to achieve with the desired colours or what overall colour concept you want to pursue. Just as important as the colours, however, are the materials to be used. This is where questions come into play such as:
Once all this has been discussed and agreement reached, it’s on to the details of the colour scheme.
After we have gained a picture of the type and size of the premises as well as any special architectural features during a walk-through, we make suggestions for colour design. We introduce you to current trends and go into colour effects and room atmospheres, which can be created, for example, by combinations such as green-blue or by colour tones such as classic white, grey, black, by brown variations or pastel colours.
If you have the courage to use colour, it should be used in a targeted manner and always include furniture, built-in elements and home accessories to create a harmonious connection between colours and the rest of the ambience. If you want to set accents with colour combinations, patterns, ornaments and other decorative elements, it is best to let our experts plan the right and coherent colour mix.
Preferences for colour design and the actual perception of colour are different for everyone and depend largely on personal taste. Independently of this, however, colours also influence the psychological level. Therefore, even slight inconsistencies can lead to the fact that you suddenly no longer feel comfortable in a room and would like to redesign everything again.
Whatever colour design you choose in the end, there is one thing you can rely on: MVM relies on the highest quality craftsmanship without exception. For this reason, we only use colours that meet our standards for quality, durability and a long service life.
The concept for the colour design is ready. Now it is time to select the possible materials for a successful result. During the material consultation, we usually recommend to our customers only those materials with which jointless surfaces can be created. Firstly, the design possibilities are more varied, and secondly, the maintenance effort is significantly lower.
We predominantly use natural and environmentally friendly materials such as clay or marsh lime as well as mineral and polymer-bound systems. The basis for the decision is the use of the respective room. Kitchens and wet rooms require different materials than living rooms or bedrooms, interiors different from facades.
Another important point when advising on materials is which design technique should be used for which surface. MVM’s team is proficient in numerous painting, modelling and troweling techniques. Our simple basic formula for this area is: material + tool = texture.
At MVM, we pursue one goal with our work: we want to create individually tailored, visually appealing and convincing living spaces for our customers. That’s why we devote a lot of time and commitment to the topics of colour design and material advice, in order to be able to create harmonious room concepts from colours, materials and light.
