When it comes to painting a room we all get impatient for the end result, but the process involves a long list of tasks and decisions to be made along the way.
After multiple visits to the hardware store, hours in the aisles pondering different shades, then filling the boot with sample pots and swatches, still you can find yourself stuck between going bold or sticking with neutral.
Is it any wonder that Antique White is the best selling interior paint colour in Australia?
Choosing a safe colour can be tempting, especially when you are eager to get the job done, but the benefits of the right paint colour should not be overlooked!
Colour has a direct effect on the way you feel, and in the home this translates to the mood of the room. The right paint colour can liven up a space, make a small room look bigger and generally show off a room to its best advantage.
When choosing paint colours, think about how the room will be used and go for colours that suit the energy you want. Shades of the same colour can enhance or decrease inherent qualities, for example soft greens are soothing and relaxing, while bright emerald greens are refreshing and renewing.
