Are you dreading your internal colours selection appointment, simply because you just don’t know what colours you want within your home? For some people, finding their own style for their home can come very easily, but for some of our clients, this whole point in the building process can be quite daunting.
With that in mind, I asked myself how do you get started choosing the base palette for your new home? To answer this question, I thought I would jump on to the Taubmans® website to get started. I have to say I was most impressed with the Colour Tips section on their website.
These tips introduce you to some colour basics to help you get started. Shayna Blaze, a popular Interior Designer, TV Presenter and also an Ambassador for Taubmans® has provided her 10 commandments of colour in a useful and easy to follow article.
Getting yourself familiar with the basics and learning about warm and cool colours can also assist you when trying to sort out different colour combinations for your home.
The Taubmans® website also has interesting tips on how you can test a colour to see how light will affect it. I highly recommend reading this when choosing colours for your home. A colour may look beautiful on the swatch, but the colour may differ slightly when light comes into play.
If you just aren’t sure what style you want your home to portray, take a look at the Taubmans® Colour Game. This feature will ask you a series of questions and based off your answers will determine a colour palette that best reflects your personality. This was quite an interesting feature and will also give you a series of colour options that may help you get started when trying to create your own style.
