COLOUR EDUCATION 6 NO-FAIL PAINT COLOURS FOR YOUR HOME
11 February 2014

If ordinary white is your usual go-to choice, but you’ve always wanted to try colours on your walls,
here are 6 no-fail shades that work well in any home.

Share this article with your friends and get their input on these colours. 




Most homeowners fail to notice this choice of colour. It’s almost white, but far from boring. The ivory hued walls work well in bouncing off the natural sunlight allowing interior spaces to appear airier and brighter. 


This palette is a perfect start for the non-risk takers. Try using this shade in spaces that require a lot of natural lighting such as the kitchen or bathrooms. 




Blue is a crowd-pleaser and a conversation starter. If you’re going for brighter colours like this one, tone 

it down with neutral coloured furniture. The hints of soft blue lend a sophisticated appeal to its ambiance.

And if you’re still hesitant about going all out with a bright colour, start with smaller spaces like your
bedroom or hallway.
 





Grey tones can come off as
 dull and cold at times. But if utilised well, this monochromatic palette can exude a timeless appeal. Bring out the warmer undertones with cream coloured upholstery and walnut-stained pieces.

This would create a cosy and welcoming ambiance for its inhabitants.
Try using this shade in areas where you spend most of your time in such as the living rooms, kitchens and home offices.




Command attention in a subtle approach with this sage green hue that still adds a little colour to a space. 


Calming and soothing colours like this fit ideally in bedrooms, home offices, dining rooms and kitchens.




Stimulate your senses with this shade of golden apricot that is sweet yet subtle. 


Enhancing the ambiance of your home with this yellow base hue would flatter every skin tone with its calm and collected appeal. This shade lets small spaces like your bathrooms feel larger.




Rich chocolate shades make large rooms feel cosier. Rich in texture, this palette adds depth and character that will set a tone to any room. Perfect for larger spaces like your living rooms, dining rooms and bedrooms.
