Decorating Decisions

Decorating decisions can sometimes come down to one major detail - the colour palette. This decision will affect just about everything else in a room, from the floors to the ceiling.

It’s a big decision, but there’s no need to be overwhelmed.

Here are few quick tips to get you started on colour choice:


  • Select three shades of the colour you want: where you think you want to be, and one shade lighter and one shade darker. Do this with paint, wallpaper, or fabric swatches. Put the samples in two places, next to the window and in a darker corner. Look at them at different times during the day and at night. Then make your decision.
  • We recommend choosing one or two colours throughout the house, and then mix in other accent colours with accessories and furniture.
  • Bold colours can become tired, very quickly. If you really like a strong, bold colour, use it as an accent. Bold colours are often attractive because they are the colour of the moment; this can quickly date a room.
