Bringing Colour Into Your Home

Colour is like food for the spirit – plus it’s not addictive or fattening!  Colour can do many things in the home, from changing the ambience to adjusting the atmoshphere!  Adding colour to your home takes a little planning and preparation, but the results can last for many years.

The first thing to do is choose your vibe.  You can increase a room’s social appeal with warm colours like reds, yellows and oranges.  These colours encourage activity and life as well as giving a great vibe in the kitchen or living room of your home.

If you are looking to relax more, cool tones are fab for this.  Colours like blues, greens, greys and purples make up the cool spectrum, so a room painted in cool colours becomes calm and relaxing.  Ideal choices for bedrooms and bathrooms.

To create a mellow vibe, why not try pastel shades?  These shades are softer and can give off a younger look.  A soft bathroom or hallway is an inviting combination in pastels.
