THE BENEFITS OF A COLOUR CONSULTANT
A colour consultant can be the difference between finding your dream room design and one that just doesn’t work. While many people simply choose trendy colours for their design, choosing colours that are reflective of your own style and personality will ensure your rooms are timeless and never go out of style. A colour consultant can help you choose colours reflective of who you are rather than focusing solely on the latest trends.
Here are a few other reasons why a colour consultation for your Ottawa home can make a difference with your design.
Understanding Colour Theory
Colour consultants not only have a firm understanding of design principles but they can also blend this with your own individual tastes and feelings. Colours convey a range of different feelings, and understanding how to properly use and balance them is fundamental to creating a mood. For instance, red is striking whereas purple often conveys relaxation. However, a colour consultant will go beyond basic colour theory—they can integrate their understanding of theory with your own perceptions and feelings towards colours, resulting in a great design that is also tailor-made for you.
Finding Sources for Inspiration
Oftentimes a colour scheme will be chosen without consideration for whether it works with the rest of the room. Colour consultants work to find different sources for inspiration, such as your wardrobe or furniture, to ensure that colours seamlessly integrate with your room, lifestyle and belongings. Having a different set of eyes taking a comprehensive look at your home can be a great way to come up with new ideas and inspiration. A colour scheme can be based off of an antique, family heirloom or treasured memento, creating a room design which carries an emotional resonance for you.
Daring to be Bold
Many people are afraid to be bold with the colours they use in their home, resulting in bland, uninteresting designs that fail to catch the eye. A colour consultant can help you be “bold” with your colours without crossing over into tacky or jarring design. By using a dominant colour, a secondary colour and accent colours, a consultant can provide a nice balance for your room that is vivid and eye-catching but also pleasing. A good colour consultant will understand the deft, subtle relationships between colours that make the difference between good and bad design.
