Creating a Cohesive Look

How to Choose the Right Colour Palette for your Interior Project

Choosing the right colour palette for your interior project can be a daunting task, but with a little bit of planning, it can be a fun and rewarding process. Here are some tips for creating a cohesive look with the right colour palette:


Start with a neutral base: A neutral base, such as white, beige, or gray, can serve as a foundation for your colour palette. This allows you to add pops of colour and pattern without overwhelming the space.


Consider the mood you want to create: The colours you choose can greatly affect the mood of a space. Warmer colours, such as red and yellow, can create a lively and energetic atmosphere, while cooler colours, such as blue and green, can create a calming and relaxing atmosphere.


Look to nature for inspiration: Nature can be a great source of inspiration for colour palettes. Take inspiration from the colours of the sky, water, and earth to create a harmonious and natural colour scheme.


Use a colour wheel: A colour wheel can be a useful tool for understanding colour relationships and creating a cohesive colour palette. Complementary colours, such as red and green, and analogous colours, such as blue and green, can create a harmonious colour scheme.


Take into account the existing elements: Take into account the existing elements in the space, such as flooring, furniture, and artwork, when choosing a colour palette. These elements can serve as a starting point for your colour scheme and help to create a cohesive look.


Test your colours before committing: Test your colours before committing to them by creating a small sample board. This will help you to see how the colours will look in different lighting. We personally love using Mattoboard which is extremely user friendly and gives you a great visual idea of the style you are creating, and best of all it’s FREE.
