Colour is an essential part of design, and it can have a powerful effect on how our home makes us feel. But choosing colour is something with which many people struggle – there’s so much choice, it’s easy to get bamboozled.
Often, the images we use for inspiration are from places with entirely different climates to our own and, while bright and vibrant shades look fantastic in sunny locations, they’re not so good in areas that have weaker light.
Ireland gets a large number of cloudy days throughout the year, which makes the light soft and diffused. Many homes have darker, north-facing rooms or are light-starved at certain times of the year. Some colours work every time in this context, but others just don’t, and it’s not always obvious why.
Having created my own paint collection for Dulux, I’ve spent a lot of time analysing why some colours always look fantastic and others never do, and I’ve discovered that there are specific rules that you can follow to help you to choose more wisely.
This guide will help you to understand why specific colours work and others don’t and will provide you with the tools to help you to select the perfect shade for any room in your home
