"For a really liveable, comfortable home that makes you feel good every time you open the door, integrating colour is essential.
"We are all naturally attracted to certain colours but fear of making a mistake often stops us applying the shades we love to our walls.
"To create a colourful interior you just need to understand a few simple rules."
Take the time to learn these three principles of design and you’ll be well on your way to understanding the basics of colour coordination for a fearless approach to trying it at home.
