Dramatic Colour Inspirations

Updated: May 13, 2019

The confidence in selecting a strong colour may seem DAUNTING at first!

The thought of stepping away from the safety zone of a traditional neutral or white palette could very well see you dropping your paint brush and running for the hills.

This dramatic colour selection process may not be for everyone, however if you are up for the challenge the results are well worth the effort.

Neutral interiors can achieve a dramatic colour boost using a monochromatic moody palette painting feature walls or doors and dividers.

Striking the correct balance is the key to any successful interior. To create maximum impact when using a bold and dramatic palette, you must take the following factors into consideration; the amount of existing light in the room, existing flooring and furnishings.

Deep green, navy blue, turquoise, aqua blue, deep grey and brooding black tones all work within a design depending on the look that you are after and the overall style of the room which is being decorated.

Not all dramatic schemes are deep and dark, pastel colours (when used creatively) also create drama. For example, using a soft candy-floss tone with mint green and white stripes on both the ceiling and feature wall invoke a fresh/playful feel to a room.
