Picking colours for the home

Decorating your home can be a daunting task, there are lots of things to think about.

To name a few:

  • Colour
  • Flow and Continuity
  • Style
  • Wallpaper
  • Pattern

For those who don’t know where to start or are in need of some ideas and inspiration here are a few tips and tricks!

If creating light is on the check list there are a few things you can bare in mind. By using a darker colour in the hallways can make the adjacent rooms feel a lot brighter. Smaller spaces with minimal natural light too can work well with dark warmer colours, even bold pattern to create dramatic and intimate space instead of using white. However if you want a more minimal look having your woodwork a darker tone to the walls works well too.

It is important for some to have a sense of flow and continuity throughout their home and there are ways in which you can do this, by choosing colours on the same tonal spectrum, whether it be pastels, brights or even pattern.

If you want to add some pattern or texture to the walls in a room wallpaper would be the perfect solution the range is endless. You can be bold and really bring a room to life or a minimal more delicate paper to just add a little elegance. One wall works for the perfect statement piece too. However if you don’t want pattern pasted all over the walls consider the soft furnishing and accessories elements.

Overall there are so many online platforms to inspire you if this isn’t enough, Pinterest is a favourite of mine! Interior Designers are also there if you really want an expert opinion. If your home has a specific style whether its country or modern etc that can also help with the planning and selection process. As soon as you get going, you can eventually start to piece everything together and voila!

So.. Happy Decorating!
