How to choose a colour palette to style your space

Updated: Apr 12, 2023

Hey there! Are you tired of your dull and boring space? Are you ready to add some personality and pizzazz to your walls? Well, it's time to choose a colour palette that speaks to you and your style! Choosing the right colours can be a daunting task, but with a few simple tips, you can create a space that will be the envy of all your friends.

First things first, don't be afraid to be bold with your colour choices. Yes, you heard me right, bold! It's time to step outside of your comfort zone and add some excitement to your walls. However, make sure to choose the right space for a bold colour, such as a feature wall or an accent wall. Adding bold colours to an entire room can be overwhelming and may not provide the calming atmosphere you're looking for.

On the other hand, if you want to play it a bit safer, start with a neutral base. Neutrals like beige, grey, and white can provide a clean and calming canvas for your space. Plus, they're versatile, allowing you to add pops of colour later on without worrying about clashing.

Now, let's get into the nitty-gritty of how to create and choose your own colour palette. Here are some steps to guide you through the process:

Here are some fun tips to help you create the perfect mood for your space:

  1. Determine the function of the space: Think about what the space will be used for. Is it a bedroom, living room, or home office? Different colours can evoke different moods and feelings, so choose a colour that fits the purpose of the room. For example, a bedroom might benefit from soft and soothing colours to create a peaceful atmosphere, while a home office might need energizing hues to help you stay focused and productive.

  2. Choose your inspiration: Inspiration can come from anywhere. Look to nature, fashion, or even your favourite art pieces for colour ideas. Take photos or gather swatches to keep your ideas organized.

  3. Create a colour scheme: Once you have your inspiration, it's time to create a colour scheme. You can use a colour wheel or online tools to help you choose complementary colours. Analogous colours that are next to each other on the wheel will create a harmonious scheme, while complementary colours that are opposite each other will create a striking contrast.

  4. Test your colours: Before committing to a colour, test it out! Paint a small section of the wall or use large swatches to see how the colour will look in different lighting conditions.

  5. Add décor: Finally, add décor to your space that complements your colour choices. Mix and match patterns and textures to create interest and depth in your room.

Remember, your space should reflect your personal style and make you feel comfortable. So don't be afraid to experiment and have fun with your choices. Happy decorating!
