Colour is powerful and can conjure up feelings, emotions and even memories when used effectively. This is why it is so important to choose the right colour to use when decorating your home. Whether you are updating your bathroom, kitchen or any other room in your home, you can use colour to give the space a particular feeling or atmosphere.

Colour Scheme


Red is a bold colour which can be difficult to use without it becoming overpowering. On the one hand, red can be associated with romance, warmth and excitement. However, if not used carefully, it can have connotations of aggression and anger and can be overbearing.

This colour is usually best used in small quantities. A few rouge touches can bring a little life into a room which may otherwise be plain. Try using red features in the kids’ rooms for a feeling of playfulness.


Blue is often used in the home as it is associated with calm, serenity and reflection. This is a particularly versatile colour which can help to put your mind at ease, making it a perfect colour to use in rooms such as the bathroom or bedrooms.

For something a little different, why not try using bolder shades of blue in the kitchen for a Greek look.


Yellow can have a number of different connotations. When used in pale shades, the colour can seem calm and inviting, however, brighter shades can imply confidence, creativity and optimism. Like red tones, yellow can be overpowering and a little garish if used in the wrong way.

However, if you use yellow effectively, you can give a room a bright, optimistic and aspirational feel. Grey and yellow is a popular colour palette at the moment, particularly when used in living rooms.


Green is a calm and neutral colour, giving the feeling of tranquillity, harmony and peace. This is an incredibly versatile colour, and different shades can work perfectly in different rooms of the home. Using green can be a great way of promoting relaxation, making it a great colour for just about every room in the home.

Try using blue-green shades in the bathroom to encourage relaxation and serenity, and use deep earthy tones in a living room or home office for a peaceful feel.

Using different colours is a great way of making sure that the rooms in your home encourage a particular feeling or mood. So whether you want to create a relaxing, spa-like feeling in your bathroom, or an aspirational, creative home office, a lick of paint can be just what you need to transform your space.
