Home Living : July 21st 2009
2 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, July 21, 2009 HOMELIVING Shades of doubt Designing ways John Eussen Homewares and design specialist It canbedaunting not knowing where to start with choosing colour, whether it be for use in a new home or old. When selecting colour, choose warm shades for south-facing rooms and cooler colours for north-facing. Psychologically, this will moderate room tempera- tures in colder or warmer months. When using neutrals, play with tone. This can help adjust the naturallight in a room. With rooms that adjoin the garden, select colour from nature so there is a visual flow from the house to the garden. When selecting textiles, furnishingsor upholsteries, it is often best to select colour from nature like sage greens, warm rusts or ocean blues. European shades are different because colour is ultimately derived from nature. For example, European greens tend to be more apple and crisp in colouration. Psychologically, we identify best with colour that surrounds us. So, if you're uncertain how to use colour, stick to this formulaand use a neutral palette and more extreme colours for highlights or to accessorise the room. Colour can evoke a variety of emotions and for the full meaning of colours there is an arrayof websites which offer aguide to the definitions. Do not be swayed by outside influences, remain true to yourself and take note of the colours you like to wear or surround yourself with. If you remain uncertain, speaktoanexpert and you will eliminate costly mistakes.
