Colour: we all love it, we all want it – so why the hesitation when it comes to interiors? Colour confidence comes with practice. Certainly you shouldn’t paint your entire house red, or install a tangerine kitchen – so how then you ask? A great way to start is by adding colourful accessories – start with cushions, a cheap and cheerful way of adding and layering colour – look for texture (velvet, wool) and different combinations of pattern. Artwork is also a great way to play with colour – pop prints up on the wall with Washi Tape before committing to expensive framing. When foraying into paint, grab lots of test pots, sample and hound your local Resene – they have a colour consultancy service – and their online colour pallet generator is a great way to find complementary colours for your accessories. Of course, Roomie design kits are a great way to create a plan for your space – with a visual guide to help you through the design process.
