Dreaming of the perfect paint palette? Here’s the inspiration you need.
Knowing how to choose paint colours seems easy at first, until you’re faced with decision paralysis from so many choices. Dr Dulux is a firm believer in one very important rule when it comes to colour scheme ideas. That is, there are no rules! Having said that, we’re always here to help answer your questions and offer inspiration towards your dream home designs.
Q: Hi Dr Dulux. I know what colours I like, but I’m not sure if they’ll work in my room. What do I need to think about before choosing a colour scheme?
A: Good question and one that I get asked a lot! The most important thing is to create a home environment that’s unique to you with colours that make you smile. Here are some pointers to get you started.
Think about the colours you love to wear, the environments you like to spend time in and the hobbies you enjoy. Which colours do you associate with the things you love? These are the shades that’ll add personality to your space while enhancing the mood you want to create. Now, if you’re thinking you love green for the garden, blue for the ocean and the riot of bold hues you choose for clothes, there’s an easy way to try them all out before committing to house colour schemes.
