Colour Guides

Colour plays a major role in any homes visual identity. It can set the mood, attract attention and even spark emotions – in some cases, it can cause physical reactions, so it’s important to get right. Whether painting or designing, colour guides will help when choosing your choice of hue for wallpaper, furniture or flooring.

With this in mind, you’ll want to ensure you choose the right palette to win over your house guests. That’s where colour theory helpfully steps in. It’s the very study of colour, and a science in itself. So before you start to consider colour choices, read our following colour guides, so you can gain a better understanding behind the meaning of colour.

We will explore the basics of colour theory that you’ll need to get your head around. The colour wheel, colour harmony and the context in which colours can be used correctly in the home. We’ll also give you some tips on colour schemes. Then we’ll take a deeper look at individual colours and how they’re perceived.
