Colour……

October 25, 2011

A couple of months ago one of my favourite blogs Apartment Therapy posted a series of videos that make sense of colour in interiors (although I think the theories hold true across all colour design fields)

Colour is tricky.

White isn’t white.

Some colours approach and others recede.

There is a reason interior designers get paid to make rooms ‘feel’ a certain way. They know stuff.

It’s a bit like a science that is not taught in schools…. generally.

Like physics or chemistry, some of us have an instinct for it, while others are very afraid. But like physics and chemistry you can learn it (in theory)!

Following are 4 short videos that begin to make sense of some of our big colour questions.

1 Colour Families….. or which colours look good together 

2 Warm and Cool Colours

3. The 80/20 rule 

4. Easily Changeable Colour
