8 Color Palettes Inspired By Scenes From The Penthouse: War In Life

This intense series is also a trove of decor inspiration


Those who have seen The Penthouse: War In Life will definitely note the use of the color red in a lot of the scenes.  As a makjang, the storyline is replete with astronomical highs and lows.  The series is definitely overboard with its multiple storylines: infidelity, switching at birth, murder, back stabbing and deception were all covered, laced with extra doses of revenge as the ultimate motivation for the characters’ “war in life.”  Every episode left its audience breathless, with more questions on how the intertwined lives and issues at the Hera Palace will conclude.

There was definitely a lot of red in this series, what will all the blood shed, but we did a few color analyses for the most essential characters and some of the scenes, concluding that as far as production designs go, this series was big on visuals as much as it is on emotions.  Each piece of furniture and decor was used to support the character and tell a story.

Granted, Hera Palace’s aesthetics may not be everyone’s cup of tea.  Sometimes, it is better to distill elements of a show, rather than to run with the whole production design as inspiration. 

Based on The Penthouse: War Life, here are eight color palettes for your rooms:


Working With Color Palettes For Your Interiors


When working with a color palette for your rooms, it is important to note that not all colors need to be represented in the same doses.  Using the same amounts of color in any given space can have a discomforting effect.  Rather, judicious editing is the key in achieving a harmonious color scheme in a room.  Heed these tips to help you work with colors:


1. As a rule of thumb, use the darkest color values for the floor, medium color values for the walls, and the lightest color values for the ceiling.  This mimics color in nature where the darkest values occur below the feet.  Colors of medium value are found at eye level, and the lightest values in the sky.



2.  If there are elements in your room with prints and patterns, choose the color of the largest pattern as your accent color.  Choose whites and beiges within the same family as the ones in the print for your wall colors.


3.  Tie your home’s public spaces with a color.  These are usually the foyer, living room and the dining room.  For example, the color of your sofa upholstery can be used as an accent color in the dining room.


4. Consult a color wheel.  Analogous colors are colors that are next to each other on the color wheel, like blue and green.  Generally, these cool colors convey a relaxing mood.  They work best in rooms your family and you use for relaxation.


5.  Take a look at your closet, and see what colors work best on you.  The colors you wear are most likely flattering to your complexion.  Feel free to employ the same colors in your rooms.
