Whether you’re looking to create an entirely new look for your home or you just want to refresh a room, here are a few things to keep in mind when choosing your colours.

Begin with a reference point; Draw inspiration from a beautiful piece of artwork in the home or start with the colours you love and create a scheme around it.

What is the look and feel you’re trying to create? Is the space meant to be serene, dramatic or is it intended to be a place for social gatherings?

Consider the overall feel of your home, the colours should flow effortlessly from room to room.

Pay attention to the lighting in the space, both natural and artificial.

Consider the size of your room, darker colors tend to advance whilst lighter colors recede.

Once you’ve narrowed your choices down to a few variations of one colour, use a heavyweight poster paper and paint at least two coats of your sample colour onto it.

Because light changes throughout the room, move your sample around, viewing them in a range of different light settings.

Sample Paint Pots are also great for any touch-ups after a painting project is complete.
