THINK ABOUT YOUR MOOD

When se­lect­ing a colour, con­sider the mood of a room. Soft, neu­tral colours give a qui­eter feel­ing and are suit­able for bed­rooms while strong, vivid colours add drama and are a good choice for liv­ing rooms.

FOL­LOW THE COLOUR WHEEL

A colour chart is a great ref­er­ence tool when choos­ing colours. Ex­per­i­ment with dif­fer­ent colour com­bi­na­tions. It also il­lus­trates the vis­ual tem­per­a­ture of a colour.

PAY AT­TEN­TION TO LIGHT­ING

Light­ing can af­fect the colours of your paint. Nat­u­ral day­light shows the truest colours while in­can­des­cent light­ing brings out warm tones. Be­ware of putting a strong colour next to a large win­dow as it might be too over­pow­er­ing.
