2 HLF - Publication, Tuesday, January 27, 2009 HOMELIVING Paint & decorate Tony Isgrove Painter, decorator, and president of the Master Painters Association The right colours Well-chosen paint colours can revitalise every surface of your home, from the walls and ceilings to the exterior render and trim. Although the processes involved with painting are relatively simple to understand, selecting a paint colour can be difficult and time consuming. The challenge is to find the best colours to fit your ambitions and still have a colour scheme that will be enjoyable or increase your home's resale value. The basic principles of colour are hue, value, intensity and temperature. By combining these four ideas all potential combinations are possible. Hue: Typically the term applies to combinations of primary colours with different values and intensities. Hue is a favourite term of decorators. Value: The lightness or darkness of a colour. Value is determined by the amount of white, grey or black that is added to a pure colour. Other related terms are tint, shade and tone. Intensity: The measurement of the brightness of a colour. If a colour strikes you as light, medium or dark you are judging the value. Intensity is bright or dull. Low-intensity hues are commonly used as main colours and higher intensity hues for accents. Temperature: Colours are often referred to as warm or cool. Red, orange and yellow seem warm. Blue and green are cool. Neutral refers to a combination of warm and cool, example is beige. The temperature helps set the mood. The goal is finding balance between these four ideas and achieving a look you can live with.
