    There are so many ways to add personality and colour to your house. While walls and furniture are the go-to surfaces to transform your space, floors can also become a great big blank canvas. If you have hardwood flooring or even neutral tiles, you don’t have to tear it up to brighten things up. With good floor paint and floor protector, you can make your existing floor work for you by painting it. Berger Weathercoat Floor Protector can be used on exterior or interior cement or concrete based floors. It provides both protective and aesthetic value to the flooring and is available in a wide range of colours.

  2. Colour does not only affect our emotions and psychological state but also our body. Red is known to heighten alertness, being consistent with psychologically preparing for danger. It activates our nervous system and increases the heart rate. This fight-or-flight response helps us to react faster when faced with danger.

    Cool colours like blue and green also affect us physiologically. They calm the body and relax the mind, for example, they lower blood pressure and reduce respiration. This is why surgeons often dress in blue or green.

  3. From mid-October to January, when the sun sets, the western horizon turns into a stunning display of a colour combination of red, yellow, mauve and orange. This is known as winterline. It is an atmospheric phenomenon that develops under special conditions during an inversion when warm air is trapped beneath cold air. This phenomenon is unique to Mussoorie and a part of Switzerland. This occurs due to the reflection of sunlight at a particular angle, only visible from mountain ranges with a clear sky and valley towards the west.

Colour Tips For January 2022

  1. wall painting images for hall

    With so many options to choose from, picking the right shade of white for your home walls is a tricky task. White is often the hardest colour for most people to pick. If you’re wondering which shade of white will work for your interiors, begin by asking yourself some questions. Consider the natural light, existing furniture, accent colours and wall colour design and finish in the room.

    For a north-facing room, a warm white will help balance out the cold light. In a south-facing room, cooler whites counteract the yellowness of the bright sunshine.

    Stark, cool whites blend beautifully with modern, minimalist furniture. If your space has a traditional, boho vibe, it is safer to choose warm whites (with hints of yellow and beige). With industrial, rustic rooms, experiment with either cool or warm whites.

    According to colour and design experts, lighter colours like powder blues, pastel purple, grey and soft pinks reflect and spread natural light in the room, making the room appear airier and brighter. Bright colours in the living room make the space seem larger than it is. On the other hand, dark colours absorb light and make the space look closed in. For Indian homes, paint colour for walls in dark shades of blue has become very popular for the right reasons. Indigo, ink blues and navy are modern options to add a unique look to your space.

    Nothing captures the essence of hope and growth like nature in full bloom. This is why incorporating green in your home, be it with plants, accent wall paint or furnishings- is a great idea. Energised, revitalised and refreshed, these are all things we might feel when we surround ourselves with greenery, even if it is found in our interior decor. What’s wonderful about green is that there are so many options to choose from. Rich olive green to hunter green to mint green, there is a hue for every room and every aesthetic.
