Unique Colour Schemes

Creating colour palettes for my clients is something I truly enjoy. It’s SUCH an exciting adventure... and there are so many options that creating new colour palettes might not be too difficult for those with good taste. However, the challenge for those designing is to offer a product that is unique to the taste of every client.

If you're in the process of selecting the paint colours for your home or clients' project and need some directions, in brief, here's how I do it with my clients...

1. Understand my clients’ taste and favourite colours

2. Decide if using their colours for the main walls or as a feature

3. Pinpoint the intensity that will suit their furnishing and décor.

How do I do this? Watch the full video below.

Colours' selections tools

There are also many tools to help with this process, such as a Taubmans’ fan-deck or their brochures with pre-made colour palettes. The Coloursmith Reader, however is a great tool that you might find very helpful if wanting to match the colour of something already existing in your home, like an artwork or the upholstery of your sofa, or the curtains you have fallen in love with and decided you must have.
