After a few years of neutral palettes, you can expect to see a lot of colour this year. A good indicator of what will be "in" this year is to follow the fashion world. Keep an eye on what the models are wearing down the runways of Paris and Milan.
You will see a return to bright colours. Predictions by top designers are that the three big colours to watch for this year are yellow, green and blue.
It can be difficult choosing the right colour for your home. A colour that looks good in one room in your home, may not look right in another. This is due to light exposure differentials. A good practice is to buy a small sample pot of paint and apply two coats on your wall in a two foot square area. This should also be done on the adjoining wall as well.
The next step is then to study the colour for a few days at different times of the day on both walls. Make sure that you see all of the variations that will occur due to light exposure. If you are happy with your choice, then go ahead and buy the necessary amount of paint to complete your project.
