5 Amazing colour palettes to consider if you're renovating
Having a colour scheme for a room uplifts and gives character to everything else in the room. Before going through colour swatches, think about the vibe you want in the room. Everyone has their own visions and a colour scheme will help match visions into reality. The purpose of the room also plays a crucial role while picking out colours.
In the case of a bedroom, think about what colours you want to wake up to, while for a children’s room, the colours can be creative and bright.
Deciding colour palettes for your home can be quite overwhelming as colours also decide the entire vibe and energy of the room. At the same time going through colour swatches and deciding the outlook of your room allows you to be creative and make the vision of your dream home come true. Keep in mind the natural light that comes into the room because colours appear different with different shades of the sun.
