Room Colour Schemes

Are you redecorating or designing the interiors of your new home from scratch? One of your very first steps is determining your room's colour scheme. This colour ideas guide is designed to help you decide on the ideal colour combinations for your room's flooring, walls, furniture and accessories.

Perhaps you've set your heart on a duck egg blue carpet and need to know how to accessorise with it - or conversely, you're replacing your carpet and are wondering what colour would work with the rest of your room. Either way, we can help.

Simply tap a colour from the colour wheel for further information - give it a try!

Blue Colour Schemes

blue Room

A calm, serene colour. Blue evokes a soothing stillness, with lighter shades offering openness and a sense of freedom and clarity. Darker shades are more thoughtful and provocative, often evoking a strong sense of depth. Blue works perfectly in bedrooms and bathrooms, and can work wonders in an attic room, child’s bedroom or study, too.

Often associated with nature, green is a healing colour that brings a calming, relaxing air to a room. Both dark and light shades of green can help to relieve stress, dispel anxiety and instil harmony.

Orange Colour Schemes

orange Room

A versatile colour which brings energy and enthusiasm without the boldness of yellow. Orange can still demand attention, but has a refreshing edge that is less draining on the eye. Thought to aid digestion, orange can be used in the dining room to great effect, while it strikes a reassuring chord in the living room, and works well in rooms where natural light is ample.

Purple Colour Schemes

purple Room

Purple is a powerful and distinguished colour. Its association with royalty gives it a luxurious overtone, while it carries a creative and artistic bent which only deepens its effectiveness. Purple’s rarity in nature adds a mystical aura, particularly in darker shades, and can be impactful in the bedroom or living room without being the centre of attention.

Red Colour Schemes

red Room

Red is an incredibly evocative colour; it influences people in different ways, often creating a passionate personal connection for many. Traditionally associated with love, red can also instill a sense of danger and heat. Darker reds add layers of depth, and can communicate a richness and prestige while maintaining a lively and social air. Red is versatile, working to elicit passion and warmth in bedrooms, while also setting a contemporary tone when paired with neutral hues in the living room or dining room.

Pink Colour Schemes

pink Room

Pink can be a hugely influential colour; not only is it the universal colour of love, but it also encourages understanding, kindness and thoughtfulness. Pink can be very emotional and sentimental, and may be overpowering if used without restraint. The colour is often associated with femininity, making it a popular choice for girls’ bedrooms, but can also be balanced perfectly with darker borders and accents.

Neutral Colour Scheme

neutral Room

Neutral colours, such as cream, white and off-white, provide plenty of opportunity to create a stylish, modern and relaxing environment. They are highly flexible, working well with just about any other colour, and help to balance stronger or more domineering hues. Neutral tones are clean and help to let the room breathe, and can be put to good use anywhere, from the kitchen and living room to the bathroom and bedroom.

Monochrome Colour Scheme

monochrome Room

Choosing monochrome for the living room or bedroom is an effective way of setting a contemporary atmosphere that provides striking interest as well as comfort. Monochrome designs are sleek and modern; they make great use of natural light and help to set a room apart without relying on an in-your-face, attention-seeking glare.
