7 Colour schemes and combinations for your home.

7 Colour schemes and combinations for your home.

When it comes to picking a colour scheme for your home the initial task may seem daunting, we want to be able to create a room in which we are comfortable and be our most relaxed selves. Choosing your colour scheme is just the beginning of your interiors but let's try and make it easier for you! 

Look at your wardrobe what colours are you primarily looking at? Blacks, Blues, Brights, Pink, Neutrals? This can be a great indicator of which colour you are most comfortable in from this we can then choose the primary palette of colours you will base your interior palette on. 

The key is to build a harmonious colour palette in which colours balance with one and another out and the colour wheel can aid in this decision. When palette building there are three main techniques we can look into; tonal, complementary and triadic. 

Tonal Scheme 

Grey Vintage Tropical Etching Wallpaper Mural


The tonal colour palette uses colours from the same family but varies in saturation and brightness, this scheme is easier on the eye and can help produce a soothing and relaxing effect. A tonal colour palette can be found in our design Arthur Grise

Complementary Scheme 

Leafy Orange Wallpaper Mural


This colour palette uses opposite colours upon the colour wheel to liven up a space and create contrast. This scheme tends to work best when you allow one colour to dominate allowing it to be the focal point of the room, with your secondary colour used in smaller amounts utilised to break up the room. A complementary colour scheme can be found in our design Folha

Triadic Scheme

Triadic uses three different colours which are equally spread around the colour wheel. This scheme gives off a richer feel with contrast and creates a harmonious look, the use of a triadic colour scheme can be found in our design Syrily.

Various colour schemes you can utilise:
