Choosing paint colours when decorating I find really hard because..
- I am really fussy!
- what looks good on the charts means something entirely different on the walls!
- the colour in my head isn't always the colour I choose.
Colours should always be chosen without any others getting in the way unless they are a group of colours but then there is always a predominately base or strong colour so this usually rules what goes on! Light has a massive impact on colour especially when choosing for rooms. What looks good outside can look downright dowdy inside. So depending on your natural light you sometimes have to choose a colour you wouldn't dream of!
I find colour combinations really cool. One colour can look so different depending on what colour is lying next to it.
Try staring at a colour for a couple of minutes then stare at a white wall or piece of paper and you will see the opposite colour.
This sounds bizarre I know but I once stared at a flashing red light on the phone and after a short time in those gaps when the red light was off I saw green!
Some colours I love!
I really like the colours going on in the background
