Defining colours and decorating with them is a rewarding experience once you realise what can be achieved using simple shades. Explaining our responses
to colour is about an emotional reaction as it is an exact science. There is something special about the personal and mysterious connection between
colour and our emotions. We live with colour every day and yet it can be so intimidating. So why does the commitment to colour, especially at home,
demand such an act of courage?
The question of context is crucial in choosing the colours that both move you and fit within your environment. Is your home period, modern, rustic
or urban? If so you may like to consider a palette that enhances that particular period. An easy way to create colour flow is to use lighter and
darker shades of the same colour throughout your home. Colour is a universal language, it stimulates emotions, shapes cultures and forms the background
of our world. Quite simply, colour can influence mood, create atmosphere and lift spirits. Seeing colour, using it and surrounding yourself with
a personal palette that works for you produces a calming backdrop for daily life. I think of colour as one of my greatest indulgences.
