Home Living : October 4th 2011
HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, October 4, 2011 3 HOMELIVING Colourful personalities in season CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT: Yellows are colours of summer, red is exciting and dramatic, pink is warm and romantic, painting can be a teamwork exercise, greens are restful. SPRING is all about colour. But did you know that the colour you pick from anything involving your clothes to the car you drive says a lot about you? Are you a little sweet, sour, tangy, zesty or complex? ''Our choice of colour describes much about ourselves, how we function and how others see us,'' Dulux Colour planning and communications manager Andrea Lucena-Orr said. Behavioural characteristics associated with yellow include optimism, wisdom and warmth. Reds suggest passion, love and courage and orange represents boldness, cheer, vigour and exuberance. Attributes of white include cleanliness, hope and joy, and black reflects mystery, elegance and uncertainty. Green is linked to compassion and envy while blue represents loyalty, justice and sincerity. Brown is the down to earth colour, signifying casual, natural and tranquil personality characteristics. Hues to provide character in your home Yellows are colours of summer and make the room brighter. Blues give a tranquil, serene feeling and the illusion of spaciousness. Reds generate a wonderfully warm, passionate feeling with a hint of excitement and drama. Greens are relaxing and restful, creating a cool, fresh and calm atmosphere. Purple creates an illusion of grandeur and is historically linked to royalty and greatness. Pinks are warm, feminine colours making a room feel soft, romantic and cosy. Whites and neutrals make a room appear bigger, creating an easy balance connecting us to nature. Blacks can be used to frame the perfect view, for a theatre room or to create a certain mood. Browns are lovely to use in rooms where you want to blend the inside with the outside. 9938 4377 Showroom 1/9 Powells Rd Brookvale email@example.com supershades.com.au Free All suburbs in home consultation off and all Venetian Blinds Conditions apply.
