When deciding the overall colour scheme for a particular room don’t be tempted to choose the colour for walls, backgrounds, ceiling, doors first. There is such an abundance of colours, textures and shades to choose from, and paint is relatively inexpensive and can be matched to almost any imaginable colour you eventually decide on. Instead begin your colour search with those elements that are not so flexible. Look at the fixed elements like furniture, tiling, wallpapers and fabrics. Base your paint colours on these.
“It’s amazing what a fresh coat of paint can do”. We’ve probably all heard this said at some point, and it’s just so true. A fresh lick of paint on the walls, emphasising a special feature on a wall, indeed creating a statement wall, or giving expression to your “inner artist” with some unique and creative paint effects, can be transformative. Indeed paint can be used in countless ways to freshen up your space, from block painting, special paint effects and giving a new vibe to some of your current furniture. If you’re overwhelmed by the myriad of choices you have don’t forget we’re only a phone call or email away.
