Colour Scheme

The Easy Way to Choose A Colour Scheme for the Living Room

It’s not that difficult to work out an amazing colour scheme for your favourite room.  You don’t have to be an interior designer like Sam Sorgiovanni to have a home that pops with all the right colours. It can be quite an easy job to choose colours for any room if you have a pretty mat or even a piece of artwork you really love and intend to use in it. Here’s what to do.

  • Choose the main colour in the artwork and use a colour chart to find a paler or lighter version for the walls of the room. This will usually be a background colour, not the part that pops out at you.
  • From the wall shade, choose a slightly darker hue for the carpet.
