Natural light has a lot to answer for when painting and decorating. The way sunlight enters your room can have a big effect on how you see the colours on your walls.
Depending on the direction your room faces, natural light can make paint colours appear lighter or darker, which can affect the entire mood of the room.
If you’ve set your sights on our Colour of the Year 2022, Bright SkiesTM, and its supporting palettes, you’re in luck. We can show you the best combinations to choose for north, south, east or west facing rooms.

A south facing room is probably the easiest room to decorate. These rooms let in lots of warm natural light throughout the day, which means most paint colours work well here. However, we’d steer you towards cooler tones, like blues and greens, as they can help to balance out or reduce the intensity of light.
The Greenhouse palette is full of south facing room colours. In this kitchen, we teamed two greens, Fresh Foliage and Calming Meadow, with a splash of our Colour of the Year 2022, Bright SkiesTM, a light and airy blue. Together they bring the tranquillity of nature into the room, whilst making the most of the natural light that’s flooding in.
