If you’re tired of looking at the same wall colours or you want to change the design of your home, it’s time to bring out those colour cards. New paint can go a long way to give your home a whole new look, plus inspiration is readily available with colours and design trending online. But how do you know which room to apply it to?
Luckily, J. Gordon Painting Ltd. in Vancouver are experts when it comes to all things painting. They share some tips when it comes to pairing trendy interior paint with the right room:
Rich bronze, soft terracotta and neutral shades
The combination of warm, earthy colours with balancing neutral shades, is a perfect choice when it comes to the dining room and kitchen. With dining rooms, in particular, the warm colours help create a welcoming, cozy environment. When you have guests over or a family dinner, it helps to add to the relaxed, fun atmosphere of lots of food and friends all gathered together.
For the kitchen on the other hand, while earthy colours are still popular, it’s the darker and bolder shades that are better suited. Rich bronze can be used for a dramatic dark kitchen or paired with neutral colours for a sleek modern look. Likewise, using bright earthy tones such as peach or even yellow can help make a bright and relaxing kitchen.
Colour pops, vibrant aqua and soft grey
With living rooms, creating a specific atmosphere goes hand-in-hand with choosing colour and décor. Adding splashes of colour in an otherwise neutral room is a great way to add a modern and clean look to a living room. Other colour trends such as vibrant aqua or soft grey are ideal if you want to create a more calming room. Likewise, if you want to create a more formal seating area, then cooler colours, such as soft greys, are best. Consider these living rooms decorated with pops of colour for your own design ideas.
Hunter green, berry red and pale pink or blue
When it comes to bathrooms and bedrooms, the colour choices in these will be opposites when it comes to the shades. Bathrooms are popularly paired with light and natural colours, such as blues or soft greys. But on the other hand, it’s also the perfect space to be really bold with the colours. Steel greys, hunter green or dark wood, are ideal to create a bold space for a master bathroom. Natural stone and wood finishes help complete the feeling of a more dramatic spa space.
Bedrooms, on the other hand, don’t pair well with dark or really bright colours. Jarring colours can actually make getting to sleep harder, while dark colours feel too heavy. Splashes of bright colours like yellows or red can work great as accents, but not whole walls. Instead, using pale pinks or off-creams helps create a relaxing space.
