It is important that the colour in the different rooms around the house come together logically. Analyze each of the tones; determine which colours, and in what proportions, they complement each other to give the final result.

Here are ten household helpful hints for choosing room colours:

1) Brighten up the darker spaces by painting the walls in pale colours.

2) If you paint a high ceiling a dark colour, will make it look lower.

3) A light blue or a gray make a small room seem wider.

4) Use the wall colours to mark off areas according to actives.

5) Red and reddish tones are bold, exciting colours which stimulate movement. They are especially suitable for work areas.

6) Yellows are warm, bright colours, ideal for dark spaces to make us feel cosy.

7) Green is essentially linked to life; it reminds us of nature and is perfect for interiors we want to connect with outside.

8) Blues are fresh, harmonious, and easy to combine. They remind us of vast extensions of sea and sky.

9) To make a room more radiant, you can paint the walls in light colours and introduce dashes of colour through the furniture, complements, and ornaments.

10) Neutral colours like beiges and browns combine well with other tones and give the room a natural feel.

Colour is clearly the most visible linking factor between separate rooms and is ideal for giving consistency to the decoration scheme of a whole house.
