Choosing Timeless Paint Colours
Abi shares her tips for creating a palette for your home that enlivens, restores and cocoons.
Abi decides on colours just like she does ingredients for her fave recipes.
What is going to bring the most balance, feels restorative, relaxing and cocooning all at the same time?
Choosing colour palettes that follow the rhythms of the season and take inspiration from nature will always work.
Not only do they feel healing and calming they will never go out of date.
Think rocky deserts, lush forests, baked clays, warm earthy tones that take inspiration from nature.
Choose colours that resonate with the heart or evoke happy memories.
Go Big with the Tester
Paint out the biggest test patch that you can. Paint large strips of lining paper so that you can move it around the room and see how the light hits it at different times of the day. Never ever go by the colour chip alone.
Have fun and enjoy the journey.
Creating a home shouldn't be a stressful chore. Take your time and soak up all the inspiration you can.
