Colour Tips For September 2016

Colour Tips For September 2016
  1. Shabby-chic décor is a viable option for you if you love pastels but like the interiors to look artfully worn out and distressed. To achieve the look, paint your walls in hues of sea-foam green, teal, petal pink and select furniture made from light wood or paint it in shades of white. The style emphasizes bright colours but in a muted, elegant style.

  2. Grey is an unconventional choice when it comes to painting rooms but don't let that stop you. Grey is a versatile colour so if your home has a lot of wooden furniture, pick a shade of grey with warm undertones and if your home is an eclectic mix of various materials, artwork and gets lot of natural light, choose a shade which has rosy undertones. Light tints of grey can look sterile so pair it with bright artwork and inviting upholstery to make it cozier.

  3. Blue by itself is a vivid, strong colour and thus it is usually paired with neutrals and not with other shades of blue. But one combination which works great is pairing turquoise blue with cobalt blue and offsetting it with white. This gives a beautiful Mediterranean feel to the room and invites in natural light while maintaining the balance between upbeat and peacefulness.
