Colour Consulting

From the moment we are born, colour plays a vital part in our life. Newborn babies are attracted to dark and light contrasting colours; bright colours appeal to toddlers; younger school children prefer pastels and lighter tints; middle aged school children are drawn to solid colours and older children like deeper shades of the colour spectrum.

Colour has an emotional impact on our lives. We associate colour with negative and positive feelings and how we remember certain experiences. But without colour, our lives and the world would be lacklustre and gloomy.

Given we have such a complex relationship with colour, how do you successfully bring colour into your home? The right use of colour can transform a room from dull to stimulating; but with so many choices available and so many external factors to be taken into consideration, choosing the right colour palette can be a little overwhelming.
