Home Living : March 20th 2012
8 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, March 20, 2012 MB COLOUR SOCIAL GLOW TO LIVING Orange is ideal for living rooms. AUTUMN gives homeowners another excuse to spruce up their homes with a coat of paint. Here's a quick guide on the effect of basic paint colours. Green: a restful colour which creates a calming atmosphere for living rooms, kitchens and dining spaces. Red: traditionally used in dining rooms to stimulate the appetite. Neutrals: most versatile shades of paint and provide colour that's easy on the eye in all rooms. Yellow: Brightens a living room and adds a sunny perspec- tive to a kitchen or child's bedroom Violet: Restful colour that creates the perfect ambience for the home office Orange: Social colour, warm and stimulating and ideal for living rooms and kitchens. PAINTS NEW SEASON, NEW ME GO WITH YOUR AUTUMN MOOD-SWING Before you start, research what brushes and rollers are best suited for your paint project. Picture: Janita Singh AUTUMN is perfect for working on painting projects that have been put on hold. Bunnings paint buyer Mick Heanue says it is important to have a plan and to prepare surfaces properly. Discuss. Talk to your partner and family. The whole family can be involved, so include the children as they are always eager to give advice, particu- larly for the bedrooms. Plan. Watch DIY videos and get brochures. There are even apps to help you choose colours and calculate your paint needs. Don't rush. Rushed jobs look scrappy and hurried. Most paints take more than one coat and, including drying time, the job can take up to three days. Consider the climate. Try rust-resistant paint for wet areas and heat-reflective ex- terior paint for dry areas. Prepare. You will need drop sheets to cover carpet and furni- ture. Consider disposable over- alls to wear over your clothing. Set the tone. Paints change the character of a room. A silk finish adds a sophisticated touch to any setting. Brushing techniques. For example, quick back-and-forth strokes add a stylish suede look.
