Colour Comparisons

As you can see below, it’s when we start to look at comparisons to other colours, that things become very interesting.

When I do Colour Consultations in a client’s home, I am always comparing colours so they too can easily see the differences between the paint colours.

When I hold my large paint boards up to a decorative element such as fabrics, wallpaper or subway tile and then swap out one board with another board, it becomes clear as to which colour will work best.

Fabulous Colour Combinations

Green Smoke with Ball Green, Mouse’s Back & Stiffkey Blue

A beautiful palette bringing lovely colours from nature together. The crossbill wallpaper from A-Street Prints worked so well with these four colours.

Green Smoke And bird Wallpaper

I used part of this colour palette in the second space in my basement where we used Green Smoke – our laundry room.

We chose Green Smoke for the cabinetry this time and a dark blue for the walls. The bird and branch wallpaper incorporate the other two nature-inspired colours from the palette.

Flooring can also be a part of how you use the colour palette, as you can see in my laundry room above. It is not intended that all the colours in the palette be painted.

    The Green Smoke cabinets in your laundry room look beautiful with the wallpaper, off-white countertops, and wood floor!! Perfect combination.

    I like the off-white countertops better than the black countertops shown in the kitchen design. I like the kitchen and laundry room (where the work gets done) to be light and carefree. 😉

      Thank you Cheryl! I agree with the light and carefree look in the places we must spend lots of time in, doing some sort of work. We must enjoy these areas, so doing what you love in terms of decor is best 🙂
