room light & paint colours

South Facing Rooms

Shower room painted with Nordic sky

Colour: Nordic Sky

Got a south-facing room? Spaces that face south ENJOY STRONG CLEAR NATURAL LIGHT, so all colours work well. However, cool shades such as blue, green and violet balance the intensity of sunlight. These shades can help you achieve a tranquil and breezy atmosphere in even the brightest rooms. This also goes for greys and whites too – those that contain hints of blue, green and violet will ensure the room doesn’t feel too ‘hot’ without adding strong colour.

Colours to try: Nordic SkyWillow Tree, Lavender Quartz, Polished Pebble, Rock Salt, Clouded Pearl 1

North Facing Rooms

bathroom painted with Crushed pink paint

Colour: Blush Pink

North-facing rooms HAVE COOLER NATURAL LIGHT, and generally, less of it so can sometimes feel a little dark and cold. But don’t worry! There are lots of ways to maximise your space. These spaces benefit from warmer shades like pink, gold and yellow tones. These colours can help you achieve a cosy, welcoming atmosphere even in rooms that are lacking in that warm glow of sunshine. Greys and whites that contain hints of pink, gold and yellow will add more subtle warmth to your space.

Colours to try: Blush Pink, Copper Blush, Butter Biscuit, Perfectly Taupe, Summer Linen, Jasmine White

east facing rooms

shower room painted with Goose Down paint

Colour: Goose Down

East-facing rooms will have NATURAL LIGHT IN THE MORNING

These rooms take some extra consideration when picking colours. If the room is east-facing and mainly used in the morning or mainly used in the evening then cooler colours containing hints of blue, green and violet will help balance the intensity of the sunlight.

If the room is used during times when the natural light is restricted, consider the type of artificial light being used. Low energy compact fluorescent bulbs cast a cool violet and pink light which can make subtle neutrals and tints look washed out. Warm LED and Halogen bulbs are good for all colours.

Colours to try: Crushed Aloe, Blue Opal, Goose Down, Raspberry Diva, Chic Shadow, Overtly Olive
