Rang De Basanti

Paint to your heart’s desire before Diwali, Poila Baisakh, or at any time. Open your gates to creativity and welcome hope with every splash of colour. The hope of new beginnings, bringing a tiny little member to your family, or on every good occasion fulfills your aspirations with a coat of paint. But choosing a colour can be a tiresome job. Firstly all family members, (how many you have at your home) will have separate visions. One will say ochre red, the other will say baby pink, and you want smoldering orange. Uff Great Confusion!

So here’s a simple guide of the paint colours to choose while doing up your interiors, creating your niche, and having your own zone ready. Are you ready? Can you feel it? Then let’s go for it…

Choosing an interior paint colour is easier than you think

First, you must understand that selecting an interior paint colour is a task that is easy. The simplest way to choose the best interior paint colours is to start with the colours you love. Shortlist them. When you start this way, you are unbound by the traditional colour schemes even as you suddenly find the whole colour palette opening up for you. Using your favourite colour as your base, you can use it to create a scheme around it.

Understand the basics of paint compositions

Paint comes in a variety of sheens as well as in either oil or latex. Latex paint is the most common and preferred paint type to use because of its lasting durability and functionality in terms of being easy to clean. It also tends to be more fade-resistant.

Get the shine through the sheen

It is important to know that the glossier the paint, the easier it is to clean up. If you have small children (by default they are NAUGHTY!), and the room you are planning is, say a playroom, you can opt for high gloss sheen as you can wipe the walls clean with a damp sponge. High gloss is also great for trim and will impart a charming look, complementing the flatter sheen of the walls. Moreover, though semi-gloss would be a good choice for kitchens and bathrooms; you can select a flat/matt paint if you have walls with imperfections.

Know the colour wheel

A good rule of thumb is to recall the colour wheel comprising the primary colours of red, yellow, and blue. These are on the colour wheel at 12:00, 4:00, and 8:00 respectively. Combining any of these will give a secondary colour (i.e. purple, orange, etc). So colours near each other on the wheel, such as blue and purple, are analogous and will allow one colour to stand out more. Staying within the same shade of colour (for instance, greens) will give your space a subtle and soothing look.

So go now, with your imagination, colour your walls aquamarine, beige, fuchsia, tortoise, floral white…and while you are at it, here’s reminding you that you can connect to Healthy Homes and we will do the needful. You can just tell us which paint you want where! Isn’t that much easier? You can just sit back and relax and let your imagination flow.
