matchmaking with colours

Colour plays an integral part of your décor. It has the ability to alter the perception of space in many ways - by enhancing a beautiful detail, by subduing an undesirable feature, by imposing scale or by simply compensating for the lack of architectural character.


So when you think of colours and shades for your home, think in terms of:

  • Creating a mood and ambience
  • Choosing colour combinations by the function of the room
  • Choosing shades by the size of the room
  • Experimenting with various colour combinations to enhance or detract the shape of the room
  • Complementing the furniture inside the room
  • Fabric and flooring to define a theme


Below, we've defined some wall colour combinations that could work with the look you want to create. Feel free to use your imagination to let your home reflect your character.



Invigorate, add drama and create a feeling of intimacy. This is an ideal colour to complement a classical design. Lighter shades bring a meditative quality while the darker shades look stately. Richness is a natural property of violet.


peaches and oranges

Warm and soothing, these colours complement modern décor and add a sense of space. For an elite and comfortable look, consider painting your bedrooms and living rooms with these shades.



Deep, strong and dramatic, red is one of the most powerful colours. Rich and intense, romantic and passionate, flamboyant and exhilarating - red can make many statements. Combined with any colour, it always adds excitement and energy, and certainly never goes unnoticed.


beiges and browns

Creating a formal ambience, beige forms a neutral base to achieve either the classic or the contemporary look. Beige is warm and stable. A colour of the earth, it has a strong association to security; which is why, beige works well in the dining and kitchen areas. A combination of yellow light and rich furnishings brings out the best in these shades.
