- Makes any outlines clearer, which is convenient for the visual expansion of space with the help of vertical or horizontal elements of this color;
- It combines absolutely with all colors, but a number of combinations are very bright and aggressive, which requires the use of additional neutral shades;
- Visually makes objects farther, allowing you to visually deepen niches or lengthen the room;
