Deciding to redecorate your house can be an exciting time and a great opportunity to create a new look. When choosing how to restyle your interiors it can sometimes be a bit overwhelming though with so many different paint colours, furniture and feature pieces available. Here are some tips for helping to pick the perfect palette for each room:
1. Use the colour wheel
If in doubt, use the colour wheel to help you get a feel for which colours work well together. Ones next to each other will generally complement each other, whereas those lying opposite each other can be used to creating striking contrast in a room.
2. Use accent colour sparingly
Whilst accent colours can be highly effective and help bring a room to life, it’s important not to get too carried away. As a rule, only about one tenth of a room should be in the accent colour so as not to dominate the whole space.
3. Use colours from patterns for walls
Floral designs and exotic patterns are in fashion this season. Use more neutral colours from the patterns to help you decorate other parts of the room. For example if you have patterned upholstery or a patterned rug, choose a neutral shade from this for the wall or carpet so they complement each other rather than compete for attention.
