A Touch of Colour



White: for centuries has been used as a symbol of purity and sterility, which

Is why it is often the colour found in public washrooms. White is a simple colour that looks good in any bedroom, and can be used to join two colours together.


Black: this colour brings forth very strong feelings. It can be used as an accent colour, but should be avoided as a main colour.  Studies have shown that prolonged exposure to rooms painted black can bring on depression


Blue: Overusing blue can make a room appear cold.  Blue is ideal for offices as it has been shown to make people work more productively.


YELLOW:  This is a cheery and happy colour that is perfect for a child’s room or nursery.  Lighter shades of this colour are preferable, as rich tones have been shown to bring on headaches and nausea.


Pink:  This is a very feminine colour that should also be used in small doses.  Lighter shades are ideal, as darker hues can make a room look tacky.


Green:It’s a fresh, cool and calming colour that is great for bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom or living room.  Throughout history green has been associated with nature and the earth.


Red: This colour is perfect for dining rooms or kitchen as its believed that it simulates appetite.


Orange:If you’re looking for a colour that will stimulate the mind and give you energy then orange is the colour your looking for.  This would be best for a study or play room.
