Colour is personal and it takes time for people to discover the right “colour universe” for them.
There are no rules when it comes to combining colours, but limiting your palette to a maximum of four colours when decorating a room will make things easier for you. Using more than this may cause your colour composition to vanish, as colours can cancel each other out. Here are three palettes to provide inspiration.
Neutral tones are easy to live with. They are timeless, perfect for creating a restful and laidback mood in your home. But neutrals can also be ideal for combining with stronger colours.
Use vibrant hues like magenta, electric blue, saffron yellow and burnt red to fill your home with energy. Don’t be afraid to use vibrants on large surfaces such as walls or ceilings, as the colour will take your room to a higher level. Contrast is the key – vibrants “love” Black & White!
Dark, inky hues create intimacy in your home. They can be mysterious or glamorous depending on what kind of accessories you use. In combination with gold or silver, dark inks provide a touch of exclusivity.
