“The spaces we live in are a projection of ourselves, of our being and of our style. Walls become design elements where attention to health and well-being goes hand in hand with a strong aesthetic taste for decoration.”
Colour in the world of interior design is paramount to creating comfortable and stimulating spaces. A wise and well-balanced choice of colours is invaluable in determining the perception of space.
To help decoration professionals implement interior design projects in line with the most current market trends, CAP Arreghini has developed a combination of trendy colours that reflect the unique and exclusive Italian style, thanks also to a close collaboration with Architects and Designers.

The display shows the same range of colours that can be found in the Archipalette folder, helping the interior designer or the client choose the right combination of colours for the ideal decorative solution, thanks to the countless colour combinations that are possible.
The display faithfully reproduces the 112 colours from the Archipalette folder, starting from the lighter shades and gradually getting darker, to express the ideal and most contemporary decorative solution to be created according to the size and level of brightness in the room.

Neutral colours are a must have in the world of interior design as they can create sophisticated atmospheres by combining elegance and simplicity. Their finesse and versatility give life to unique colour combinations, which adapt perfectly to different styles and spaces.

Cool colours are the most relaxing, capable of instilling an atmosphere of tranquillity, calm and gentleness, recalling the colours and nuances of nature. In the world of interior design, they give a touch of sophisticated and refined style to create modern and elegant combinations.
The ARCHIPALETTE display offers the interior design professional or the client an opportunity to find the ideal decorative solution through countless colour combinations, guiding them in the choice of the right combination of colours.
The use of different nuances guarantees a multitude of expressive logics, based on the three main colour schemes: monochromatic, coordinated and contrasting to create a range of colours that can enhance the creativity of decorators and designers.
By choosing two or more colours from the same column, the right monochromatic combination is obtained, which is based on a single colour scheme, starting from the lightest to the darkest shade. This type of combination is based on the different degree of saturation of the colour, recreating a harmonious and elegant play of light.
Chromatic combinations are obtained by choosing neighbouring colours from the same row. The colours develop horizontally along different colour schemes. This type of combination allows you to play with adjacent colours, characterized by slight variations in the shades that blend harmoniously to recreate a balanced and dynamic space.
By choosing two or three contrasting colours along the same horizontal line, contrasts are created among neutral, warm, and cool nuances, which although they considerably differ from one another, they possess the same degree of colour saturation. This type of combination uses extremely different colours that complement each other, giving character and vivacity to the space.
There are many interior design styles and choosing one that best suits your home means reflecting on personal tastes and passions, as well as analysing the space you want to change.
There are those who have a weakness for the more romantic style, those who prefer the natural colours of the Mediterranean style and those who still love the essentiality of the minimal style.
The nuances of Archipalette colour display reflect all these design styles and many more.

The nuance is used to give light to spaces, but it must be carefully balanced and matched correctly with the materials and colours of the furnishing to enhance its power and vivacity, for a bold style.
