Are you struggling to know which colours to use in your home and feeling a bit overwhelmed by the choice available? Here are our tried and tested tips for getting colour right:
Take stock and be brutally honest
Before you do anything, decide what you do and don’t like about your room as it is. It may help to list 5 things you like and 5 things you’re less keen on. Perhaps the room has lovely high ceilings, attractive architectural features, a great view out of the window and lots of natural light in the mornings. It may also have dodgy wallpaper, curtains that have seen better days, a wonky door and an ugly radiator that you can’t afford to replace. This exercise is time well spent because you’ll want to preserve the features you like whilst changing or disguising those you don’t. And you may find that you don’t need to change absolutely everything. Perhaps a rug, new blind or pair of curtains is all that’s required.
