I am a huge fan of colour. I love colour combos that aren’t usually conventional but compliment each other perfectly.(Hmmm, I feel another blog post coming soon about unconventional colour combinations…watch this space lol)
But lets talk about each color and their associations.
Bright and chirpy. Great for a kitchen on those slow Monday morning.
I personally wouldn’t paint a room red, it is such a striking colour which can be good but i think it can be quite overpowering. It may be better an an accent wall or a great colour for the accessories to compliment the other main colour.
Red is representative of; passion, love, boldness, warmth and energy
As typical as it is, this is my favourite color, especially a pastel pink! It gives off a vintage / shabby chic aura which i find incredibly cute. It is a very calming color and can look great in a nursery or an adults room or even a living room.
On the other hand there’s hot pink, which is like red with its striking character.
Pink is not a very universal colour, it’s so…. girly! Passion and glamour springs to mind when I think of hot pink.
I quite like blue, my room is currently an ocean blue. It’s a calming and soothing color, it is also said to be quite unwelcoming and cold but i’ve never received that aura. Typically a colour used in bathrooms or boys bedrooms but I adore how it has been used in the image below.
Green is such a fresh colour, I tend to associate new life with it. It can become sickly if overused but when used well it is a breath of fresh air!
Orange is a warm, energetic color. It reminds me of autumn when we all want to be at home all snuggled up and cosy.
The colour of purity. Makes a room feel clean. Beware, you will actually have to keep it clean, no hiding here! White also makes a room appear bigger.
A very sharp color which I’d say is perfect for accessories or furniture. Anything else looks a bit goth like, unless that is what your aim is..
A very rich color, quite feminine and can be associated with royalty. Radiant Orchid is this years Pantone colour of the year.
Let me leave you with this …
LOL – True or not ?
