Advice • Tips • Inspiration

Colours, colours and more colours. There are so many colours to choose from when decorating a home or just one room.

Colour shapes the space of a home, sets the tone and can even determine the perception of a room’s size.

As colour trends continue to evolve and transform, it’s important to consider what these trends are and how they will date over time. Most importantly, it’s imperative that the colours selected create a comfortable and secure feel within the home.

Today, more than ever before, people want to connect with the world around them. They also want to bring these experiences and places back into the home, creating an escape and sanctuary away from the hassles of everyday life.

The home now represents a creative and artistic hub where its owners can decorate it to suit themselves, their lives, their memories and their experiences. It’s very much a place where anything goes.

When choosing paint colours it’s important to consider currents trends, personal style, liveability, the space and size of the home, existing décor, the quality of light in the home and personal budget.
