What type of colour scheme suits your personality?

So first things first, your home is a reflection of you and your personality. This means that the colours you put in to your home are essentially determined by you and your preferences. For example if you are quite slick and understated then a monochrome and minimalist palette in perhaps better suited to you than the bold pop colours of maximalism.

Likewise, if you yourself are quite quirky, then a neutral colour palette will look out of place in your home.

However, if you are looking to be a little daring and experimental, then muted pastel versions of vibrant colours may be the best option for you.


What interior paint colours are popular just now?

Sage green for example is one of the featured colour trends for 2023 and is known to have a calming effect – meaning you get that flash of boldness with some added serenity.

Other on trend options include:

  • Navy Blue
  • Dusk Pink
  • Vintage Browns
  • Yellow


Complementary colours

However if you are looking to accessorise and bring other colours in to the mix you will need to know some basic colour theory. The colour wheel will be your guide for this.

Colours which sit close to one another are considered to be complementary, whilst those opposite are regarded as contrasting.

Therefore if you want to create something harmonious keep colours close to one another, and if you want to have a statement room then go for opposing colours.

Black and white will go with any palette as they don’t appear within the wheel.
