Mere colour can speak to the soul in a thousand different ways – Oscar Wilde
One of the hardest decisions you’ll face is deciding ‘which colours’ to paint your interior or exteriors. Colours have a powerful impact on our psychology, they can be an influencer, they reflect our nature, they can inspire us or they can create a mood for every room. There is strength in colour and now, today, there are 1000’s of colour options to choose from. Create a palette, keep it clean, mix and match, highlight a feature… the possibilities are simply endless.
So here are our recommendations when starting down this colour choice road
- Consult a professional! Here at Davis Décor we can help directly or we can recommend a number of interior designers and colour specialists to help and guide you.
- Check our Dulux and Resene NZ’s website for a whole heap of information and colour palettes that highlights whats currently in trend and what works well regionally
- Don’t be shy to research on the internet or use an App to help you on your way.
- And once you have a general idea of what you’d like, then let us help you with test pots. Light effects colours drastically so what you see on line, or in an advert, or on a paint swatch will be very very different when you apply it to your walls. So be bold and experiment first before committing.
For a few online colour palettes you can consider the following, although sometimes I think the more you research the more complicated you can make it.
