Keep Your Cool this Summer – with Cool Paint Colours
Hot summer days are fast approaching so let’s focus on how you can create a cooler home simply by choosing the right paint colours.
Imagine walking in the door after a busy day at work on a warm summer day and instantly feeling like you have been transported to a place that clears your mind and soothes your soul – such is the power of colour!
The cool colours highlighted on a colour wheel include blue, brown, grey and darker shades of green. Different shades of these colours have the ability to create a soothing atmosphere within your home. You could opt for the same colour scheme throughout, or you could select two or three colours that sit beside each other on the colour wheel, which will work in harmony to achieve a cohesive look. Whites and neutrals are also a great option as they help enhance the feeling of space and create a light airy environment.
Needing help with inspiration? Take a look at your current furnishings, including artwork and flooring. Choose colours that are coherent with the rest of your interior. Pinterest, magazines and design blogs can also be helpful for creating a board that you can then analyse to discover recurring “likes.” Avoid following trends if your personal preference really is for something quite different. Remember, you are the one who has to live with the choices you make.
Paint swatches are a great way to explore different hues. However, the paint on a small card can look very different to the end result. Once you have narrowed down your favourite colour tones, buy sample pots and paint larger samples around your home and observe them under different light conditions and at various times of the day.
One of the most important decorating decisions you will make when building a new home, or revamping an existing one, is choosing the right colour palette that suits the design and style of your home – both inside and out.
