Colour has a huge impact on the overall ambience and atmosphere of a room. Not something to be taken lightly, your choice of hue, tone and shade will create a certain aesthetic, changing the mood and aura of your space. But picking the correct hue can be rather tricky and challenging for even the most skilled of designers.

If you are considering a new colour for your space, it pays to think about the height of your room, your type of flooring, as well as the size of the actual area. To provide a few ideas, tips and tricks we’ve got one room that has been decorated in 14 different schemes. Some are bright, some are neutral, but all exude a completely different quality and air.

Are you ready to pick your favourite? Check them out below…
