The Best Colour Combinations for Your House Interior
Colour. It’s all around us. Just like certain smells and textures, they evoke feelings and memories. White, for example, reminds us of cleanliness and a feeling of freshness. Blue evokes serenity, while yellow reminds us of happy days. Your choice of colour influences your mood, and that’s why it’s important to choose the right colour combination for your house interior.
In this article, our colour experts from BJC Painting Services are going to talk about some of the best colour combinations you can use in your own home. Let’s begin.
A Haven of Serenity
For many homeowners, the living room is a haven — a place where they can unwind or spend time with the family after a long day at work. A cool pale blue with a bit of green undertone, such as the Dulux’s Riviera Sea or Blue Emerald, lends a touch of serenity to your living room. Paint the ceiling with Vivid White or Snowy Mountains Half, to complete your nautical-inspired living room.
A Sunny Place
Yellow is another great colour for a living room, especially those facing east. Take advantage of the sunlight spilling onto the room by painting your living room a vibrant Golden Marguerite or muted Pale Daffodil. These colours work well with any white Dulux paint or if you want to go bold, then paint your trims and mouldings Dark Metal or Klavier.
Dark and Light
Grey can be a bit boring, but it can be a good choice if you’re painting a bedroom and you’re looking for a colour that is unstimulating so you can relax easily. Choose a cool and serene grey paint like Milton Moon or muted like Grey Port for your bedroom. Paint the crown moulding and ceiling with Vivid White or Natural White to complete your bedroom paint combination.
A Splash of Refreshing Colour
You love teal and other blue-green colours, but you’re afraid that it might be too overpowering. You don’t have to paint your whole room Teal Trip or Pharaoh’s Gem if you’re not ready for it yet. Painting the wall behind your headboard is a great way to start and highlight this magnificent colour. Plus, you can pair it with Dulux’s Casper White or White on White to complete this refreshing palette.
The Sky and the Sea
When it comes to kitchen colour, it sometimes pays to be bold. Choose brilliant blue paint for your kitchen cabinets, while the rest of the kitchen walls are painted white with a slight green undertone. Paint the ceiling with Vivid White to brighten up the room.
Earthy hues are great, especially for kitchens. If you want that unique and inviting look of Spanish kitchens, then you definitely want to try rich, earthy Dulux colours, such as Russet Tan and Warm Nutmeg. Cabinets, window trims, and mouldings can be painted with darker browns, such as Woodland Brown and Country Haven.
Easy as black and white
Choosing the right colours for a room doesn’t have to be rocket science, and you have our permission to stick to black and white if you want. We’re fans of Dulux’s Hardened Steel and Dark Metal, and you can paint them on your bathroom door and other details. White is still our choice for the base colour, and we can never recommend Vivid White enough. But if you want a white with a slight blue undertone, then go for Highgate or Terrace White.
You’ve tried painting your kid’s room bright pink and brilliant violet, but the tiny owner of the room hated it. Give that room a makeover by painting it with muted pastels and pairing it with different shades of white. We recommend Dulux’s Persimmon, English Rose, Sea Foam, and Opus for your kids’ room.
