Lets talk some fun facts on colour! What colours to paint your home and why?
Office: Try a shade of blue as it’s your most productive colour.
Bedroom: Use green as it projects tranquility and health.
Girls Bedroom: There’s a reason its all about pinks, it’s both calming and warm.
Kitchen: Have you thought about yellow? It can increase one’s metabolism, brightens your space and gives you more energy.
Living Room: If you’re looking to calm your nerves and get a little R&R think lavender. Even a grey lavender if you’re looking for something more gender neutral.
Dinning Room: If you’re looking to try something BOLD now is your time… give it a pop of red as it encourages appetite.
