Of course, there’s no need to make a decision straight away, take a look at some swatches and give it some real thought first but, if you are looking for some extra inspiration, then you’re in the right place.

Choosing the colour scheme for your rooms

Choose your mood

Think about the type of mood you’d like to be in when you’re using the room you’re thinking about. If it’s a room that you want to use for relaxation, then more subdued, earthy tones might be for you, if it’s one you want to promote energy, then think about brighter shades – or even a neutral base with lots of pops of colour to awaken your imagination and get you in the mood to embrace your day.

Reflect your personality

Remember that  no matter how your home is decorated, it’s you that has to live there, so it’s important to make sure that your decor really reflects your personality. If you love music and literature, then find a way to incorporate that; if you’re a really fun, bright, bubbly person, then add colours and accessories that really show who you are. Little touches like this really go a long way to making a house truly feel like a home -and people will know that it’s yours as soon as they walk into it!

Think about function 

Consider the function of the room when you’re deciding on your decor. For example, it’s not necessarily a great idea to have lots of distracting features and brightly coloured walls and accessories in a home office, as they might distract you from your work. Whereas a neutral colour scheme with strategically placed decorations that may double up as helpful pieces to make use of are a fantastic idea. Additionally, ensure that you’re incorporating enough storage space into your decorative scheme, because you never know when you’ll need more of it!

Make it timeless

You don’t want to be decorating every few months, so try to ensure that your decor is timeless so you only have to redecorate when you want to, not just when your interests change. If you know you’re prone to fads or flitting interests, then try to make your decoration match up with your lifelong loves, and the types of colours that you’ve always had an affinity for. By doing this, you’ll negate the need to redecorate in a couple of months when you’ve fallen out of love with that citreuse wallpaper that you just had to have!
