Colour Palette

Colour is one of the most important factors when doing a painting job. Colour is used to create a certain style, or convey a certain mood. Colour is a personal choice of how it is seen and portrayed by an individual. Not all people see colour the same. And there is no perfect colour.

A colour scheme is composed of 2 or more colours that look appealing together. Colour schemes are based on peoples personal tastes. Light has a major impact on colour. For example, a small room with small windows can maké a dark colour seem cramped and moody. However big windows with a lot of light, can make colours look a bit sterile or anaemic. Using the same tone but by changing the shade, can give the space the homely warmth you’re looking for. The other colours in the room, curtains, carpets and art will either tie your room together or make it look disjointed.

Looking at pictures in home magazines can really help you decide what you do and don’t like. Cut the pictures out and make yourself a scrap book of rooms and the look you’re after. Then we can help you finialise the colour by painting samples of that colour on the walls.

Most people today choose a monochromatic colour scheme for the look they’re after. This scheme is composed of using different shades and tones of the same colour. This colour scheme is considered to be a safe option and rarely looks wrong. An analogous colour scheme is a slight variation of the monochromatic colour scheme by using colours next to each other on the colour wheel. Giving the colour scheme soft variations of the colour. These are only 2 examples of colour schemes.
