January Design Secret:

Colour is the best way to bring life and fabulousness to any space, but many people are afraid of colour or don’t know how to use it correctly. The best way to add any pop of colour is through a slick new paint, and hey, if you decide you don’t like it, then it is only paint after all and you can change it up again.

Our advice is to start with your favourite colour and then choose a slightly lighter, greyed tone of that colour, so as not to be too bright. If you are unsure of a colour, ask the friendly guys at Shaves Paint – they are amazing! Buy a small sample of the paint first and paint a sample on your wall approximately 1m x 1m, then live with it for a couple days. Look at it in all sorts of light and decide if you like or not. If you do, then just go for it! You will most likely find that after your first wall success, you won’t want to stop, and why should you?
