Con­trast­ing colours can be a tricky art to per­fect but, done well, it can trans­form a space. colours give a room char­ac­ter and re­flect your per­son­al­ity, so think about what you want your space to say.

Avoid us­ing too many colours as this can make a scheme clut­tered. At the same time, steer clear of hav­ing ev­ery­thing in match­ing shades – it’s about find­ing a bal­ance. Take light­ing into ac­count when mak­ing colour choices. Nat­u­ral light has a dif­fer­ent im­pact on colour com­pared to ar­ti­fi­cial light, par­tic­u­larly on shades such as grey and white. Cre­ate mood­boards with scraps of fab­rics and paint sam­ples in var­i­ous hues so you can get an idea of what works to­gether and what doesn’t.
