And we're going to do this by introducing you to colours which wouldn't normally find lying around. But when you do, you'll know what to do with it! So here we go.
Imagine a light green reminiscent of the watery foam that forms over a clear sea, with a touch of grey to ground it. The lightness in the colour is ideal to brighten up most spaces, especially those where you'd like to create a calming or relaxing scene. Try combining this unconventional shade with classic shades, like a blue-black.
A green-blue hue
An opulent and mysterious green-blue hue with more blue than green. This is the kind of blue that reminds us of mythical creatures like the mermaids, and urges us to ditch our mobile phones and embrace the colours that are around us. As an interior paint, It can be used almost anywhere if mixed with warm metallic tones, deep rich tones, or simply whites and creams. If you don't want to go all the way, then there's a solution for that too. Get your side table or simply your front door painted in this striking shade and contrast it with a neutral room.
Green with a touch of blue
Now this is an invigorating colour that's obviously more green than blue, and is inspired by the oceanside. And just like the oceanside, it works as a sweet reminder to take a breath and leave your troubles outside. And to take this emotion to its most effective high, try painting your entryway in this colour, so that all the troubles you leave behind will be left on the doormat and you'll enter like a breath of fresh air.
A honey-comb inspired orange
A milder orange that takes everything which makes orange a fun, vibrant colour to look at but adds a touch of subtlety to it too. Good use of it can cause it to radiate warmth and comfort and thus make any living space brighter. Don't use it too much as it will become an overload on the senses. Simply see it as a splash of colour to a wall-shelf or maybe a door. Or you could even use it as a backdrop for a strong piece of art, or for a more interesting contrast, against fresh, green plants.
So there you have it. Get ready to excite, inspire, and maybe even make some of your neighbours jealous.
