The art of choosing the perfect paint palette

When you are looking to refresh your home, picking colours and wallpaper style can feel daunting. However, when you make your choices based on the purpose of the space, the lighting, feel and your taste, you are more likely to curate a masterpiece. 

Understanding your painting vision

Selecting colours isn't just about paint; it's about understanding your vision for the space. Once you outline the purpose of each room, your lifestyle and preferences, whether it’s a sanctuary for relaxation, an energising workspace or a luxurious space to host parties, you are one step closer to building a palette which will reflect well in your space.

Warm and comfortable living rooms

  • Earthy neutrals: Living rooms, central hubs of activity, benefit from earthy neutrals. Warm browns and beige tones create a comfortable and inviting space, fostering a sense of connection and warmth.

Energising kitchens

Calming bathrooms

  • Cool blues: Bathrooms, spaces for self-care and relaxation, find serenity in cool blues. Blue tones evoke a sense of cleanliness and tranquillity, creating a spa-like atmosphere.

Creative children's rooms

  • Playful pinks: Children's rooms, places for imagination and play, can be brought to life with playful pinks. Pink is associated with creativity and warmth, stimulating the young mind.

  • Energetic greens: Adding energetic greens fosters a connection with the outdoors. Green, representing growth and vitality, creates a vibrant and inspiring environment for children.

Creating a diverse, harmonious space

While each room has its unique purpose, when you select a palette that flows seamlessly from room to room, you can create harmony across your home. Using neutral colours as a canvas for other design elements and personal touches, then injecting pops of colour into your home allows for self-expression and personality. Strategically incorporating vibrant accents, from furniture to decor adds visual interest and creates focal points within a space.
