Colour can def­i­nitely pro­duce a strong emo­tional re­sponse. Some rooms take deep colours bet­ter than oth­ers. Usu­ally these are rooms you might spend less time in. Bed­rooms are fan­tas­tic! A strong shade here cre­ates a cosy, invit­ing and in­ti­mate feel. Try Re­sene Wire­less, Baltic Sea, Tarawera or Green Meets Blue. Sec­ond lounges and pow­der room/ sep­a­rate toi­lets are an­other good choice for a colour state­ment. A pow­der room is great be­cause most vis­i­tors will use it – they won’t be in there for long but a deep or bright colour will give a sense of in­ter­est, hap­pi­ness, or at least a sur­prise! Con­sider Re­sene Dou­ble Foundry, Celtic, Blanched Pink or Pep­per­mint. If a fea­ture wall seems too over­whelm­ing, you could do half a wall, a thick hor­i­zon­tal strip across the wall, or a shape such as a circle or tri­an­gle around a book­shelf, piece of art or in a cor­ner of the room. Take a look at Re­sene Wild Thing, Daunt­less, Ruby Tues­day, Ir­re­sistible or Reser­voir.
