It takes experience and an eye for colour to be able to choose the right colour from a small palette that will complement every piece in your room. Not only is colour about making your space look good, it’s about a feeling, a mood, an emotion that you would like to have when you walk into the room. It’s also about playing with dimensions. By using colour you can create various illusions within a space, you can make a narrow room look wide, make a short ceiling look tall, the possibilities are endless.
Colour is a very extensive topic, I can go on and on, and this is probably not going to be my only post about it. But it’s still very hard to explain how to choose the right colour. My experience was gained through books, through trial and error and through my successes over the past few years. I believe that colour is one of the most important parts of a room. This is why I always suggest for clients who would like to work with a designer, but who do not have the budget for it, to at least schedule a colour consultation. We would discuss your wants, what you would like to feel from the space, what your concerns are, and what your favourite colours are and I would leave after giving you the samples that we have decided on. I am sure to surprise you with what we end up with. I’m also sure that you might doubt putting the colours we chose on your walls after I leave, but I’m confident that you will be happy with the result.
