Show off the colour in your home

The easiest wait to refresh your home decor is to repaint its rooms. First, make sure you take the time to choose the right shades for each space. It’s a question of taste and varies according to the person living there, but you can count on us to help you out!

The Bedroom

We spend a third of our lives in the bedroom. Now that’s a good reason to spend your energy making it even more comfortable and relaxing! Neutral tones are safe bets. They complement secondary and brighter colours. Try matching different blueish tones to balance the look, such as dark blue and sky blue. It will look refined and elegant, and it is said that blue helps promote sleep. If you find blue to be too dull, try a modern grey with an ice grey or a silver grey. You’re welcome…and good night! 

The Bathroom

If there is one room to relax in, it’s the bathroom. Avoid vivid colours like red, and bring on softer colours inspired by nature. Think ivory, creamy whites and various shades of beige. If your bathroom doesn’t have much natural light, try pale pinks or straw yellow to recreate sunshine luminosity. And if your bathroom is tiny, opt for lighter colours to make it seem bigger. You can even paint the ceiling the same colour as the walls, to bring more space to your room. It’s quite the magic trick!

Matching colours.

If you have an object in your room that is noticeable (large carpet, duvet cover, table cloth), try matching its colour with your walls. It will create a definite pop!  

The Kitchen

Kitchens are dynamic living spaces. We make meals, have breakfast in a rush, make arts and crafts with the kids in the afternoon and have nice evenings with friends. That’s why you can dare with warm colours like red. Try citrus colours to make your family hungry. Avoid cold colours and opt for creamy tones to make your space cozy and welcoming.

The Dining room

In a dining room, what matters is ambiance. We share meals and good stories. Decoration, furniture and paint colour will have a direct impact on the personality you are portraying. Many people prefer neutral tones, but compensate with colourful accessories to create a balance. For more glam, try a bold violet, lemon yellow or mint green to bring joy and a good mood to your room. By the way, we’re still waiting for that dinner invitation!  

The living-room

The best paint colour is the one you prefer and that will make you feel at home. If there is one room where you want to feel comfortable, it’s the living room. More than any other area, a living room must reflect your personality. The current “it" colours are chestnut brown and dove grey. Please avoid fire hydrant red…it will block any attempt at relaxation and will require several coats if you change your mind afterwards and want to make it disappear.

It does make you think

With time, a white ceiling can lose a third of its luminosity. Repainting the living room ceiling or washing the kitchen ceiling is a great way to bring back the light.
What type of paint should you choose?

Other than the colour, there are details to consider before buying your paint. You must choose what type of finish you want. It’s not even a question of aesthetics, it’s also to ensure that your paint stays in place as long as possible. Take a look at the chart below to make the right decision.
