Volume 31 Number 11 Choosing a paint colour for just one room can be difficult. Choosing a palette for an entire house can seem impossible. Yet, as with any design challenge, breaking the process down and tackling it in smaller, more manageable steps is the key to finding a palette that suits your home. First, take stock of which rooms are visible from one another. Use a floor plan or even a rough sketch to keep track. Next, choose a colour for the main living space – your living room and, if your home is open concept, your kitchen as well. A neutral tone such as grey or beige will help create consistency throughout. Continue by building the remainder of your palette with similar shades. For example, light grey, medium toned blue-grey and a darker blue for drama. This technique will give your palette depth while allowing it to flow. However, if you aren’t afraid of colour and want to splash some bolder hues on your walls – go for it! Paint your master bedroom red or your main floor powder room forest green. After all, it’s your house and it should reflect who you are.
