– Colour Designer Janice Lindsay
Do you ever enter a room and, although its furnishings may be nothing special, it all comes together like a decorating magazine shoot? Have you ever seen a marriage of styles, perhaps Quebecois pine mixed with Danish modern, and it not only works but is also “wow”? How about how architectural details in some homes “pop?” while, in others, they are just background?
Whether you want to set a mood, set off your space or spruce up your home for resale, it’s all about the colour.
The right paint palette can enlarge a room, enhance furnishings, showcase a fireplace, brighten a corridor and make one space flow into another. It can play with dimensions, create illusions, lend harmony and stretch boundaries.
Colour can make a bedroom becomes more restful, a living room more polished, a dining room more sophisticated, a kitchen more inviting.
