All you need to know about colours!

Colour can be life changing.

It’s simply not just paint on a wall. Colour completely has the ability to affect your mood and how you feel the moment you step foot into a room.

Think of a dark and stormy day outside and how that can impact how you’re feeling and your overall disposition for the day, especially if you have to go out in it. Suddenly, you might feel like completely changing your plans and just staying inside. Or maybe the dark and gloomy sky is making you feel extra sleepy and unproductive. For those rare few, it might have the opposite effect too! The point is that each room in your house, and even on the exterior of your home, works to tell a story with colour. And it’s completely up to you what kind of colour story you want to tell.

Did you know there’s an actual science behind what each colour has the ability to make you feel?

Picking a colour scheme is something you will probably work to try and create, but you might not even be aware that you’re doing it!
