Home Living : February 23rd 2010
2 HLS - HOME LIVING: SOUTH, Tuesday, February 23, 2010 Colour your world » ADVERTISING FEATURE It's amazing what a little colour can do for your soul, how a brush of paint can transform any room into something completely different, changing moods, bringing different energies into the house. There's colour for every season and reason. Every room has a different theme and if you understand this, you'll know what colours best suit it. But what is still so surprising is how much fear people have about painting their walls a shade other than white. Really, it's not that hard. If you don't like it, you can always go back to neutral. Before changing the colours in your world, learn a few tricks of the trade. With cooler months nearing, now is your chance to think warmer colours to cheer up the walls. Your walls may begin to feel dark and cold as the days get shorter and the air cooler. Start with the living room, the hub of the home and the most used room. Paint a new feature wall to create maximum impact. Feature walls give a living room a facelift. Dulux colour expert Andrea Lucena-Orr suggests using burnt oranges, mid- browns, tapuces, beiges and stone colours to give warmth to the room. So step out from your comfort zone and paint a room a color other than white. You might just be amazed at how it makes you feel.
