PAINTING BRUSH UP ON SKILLS HINTS FOR HOLIDAY HOME IMPROVEMENT Janita Singh HOLIDAYS mean getting on with all those jobs put on hold the whole year and painting is one of them. Choosing the right colour is the first step to a perfect paint- ing project. The colour of your walls is the foundation of your makeover. Follow these hints to find a colour scheme that's right for your home. Start with inspiration from decorator magazines; Acknowledge both existing and new furnishings and items that you want to incorporate into your home; Once you have an idea of the look you like, experiment using colour chips and sample pots at home to see what it looks like with your lighting, aspect and decor; When choosing between whites, get a true reading of the underlying tone by holding a grey paint swatch next to it. Inspirations Colour Consult- ant Lisa Christie said how you use colour is personal and will vary depending on light levels in your home, the placement of doors and windows, floor cover- ings, existing objects and per- sonal preferences. HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, November 29, 2011 7 MATCHING COLOURS A good way to pick a colour that will work on exterior walls is looking at your roof. Your house doesn't have to match the roof, but a colour should be picked to complement it. LOOK at the neighbour- hood: Even though your house is a reflection of your person- ality, you don't want to stand out in your area for the wrong reasons. You also don't want to clash with your neighbour's colour scheme. Interiors have a say: The colours inside should suggest desirable tones for outdoors. Test the paint: Before you buy big, test a spot to see if you like the colour. Most hardware shops sell samples -- try before buying. Be sure to look at the colours at different times of the day and in different lights. Colour charts and consultants: Most paint shops offer tips from colour consultants and have charts and slides.
