When choosing a colour palette for the interior of your home, you need to consider the existing colours and the light in the room. Always make sure that you experiment with sample colours before you go ahead with the job. Think about the mood that you want to create in your home.
Warm or Cool
Warm colours, used in a large living area, can create a cosy feel by making the space feel smaller. Cool colours, such as blues, greens and light purple, create a soothing and calming environment and give smaller rooms the appearance of space.
Neutrals are a safe place to start. White walls are timeless but if you want to create a more interesting and stylish effect, you can experiment with greys and beige’s to get the desired look. Consider the balance and contrast of the room. Add bursts of colour to a neutral colour scheme to liven it up.
Beach inspired Colour Palette
Blue, green and aqua tones give a fresh ocean look. A beach inspired colour palette is popular. Choose from beachy blues, saturated blues with a hint of green, rich natural greens, deep blues with a grey/green undertone, sunny rich yellows, neutral tans with a hint of gold, greys with a hint of beige, deep warm greys, tan greys or pale blues with a hint of green.
Natural finishes and industrial inspired colours are on-trend, taking influence from building materials and the natural surroundings, such as concrete, timber, stone, soil, water and the soft plant landscape. Greens, blues, beiges and greys are all popular. The classic appeal of neutrals is enduring and gives a refined look.
