Choosing the right paint colour is much easier than you think.
How do I know? Because outside of my better-informed colour community, the conversation around choosing colour too quickly tips into the mystical qualities of light and subjectivity. And I can tell you that in my 25 years of experience as a colour expert, these issues rarely hold water.
In this new series over on my YouTube channel I’m busting ALL the disempowering myths that are holding you and your home hostage when it comes to colour and decorating.
Help! The light changed my paint colour!
In the first episode, I’ll show you why, despite popular belief, it’s rarely, if ever, the case that the light changed your paint colour.
Not only is it rarely the case that the LIGHT actually changed your paint colour – and I can count on one hand how many times this has been true in my thousands of consultations – but it’s a dangerously disempowering belief making choosing paint colours seem so much more of a gamble than it really is.
Busting colour myths
In this new series over on my Youtube channel, I’m going to debunk the most commonly held myths around colour. I’ll show you a better, more rational, EASY and EMPOWERING way to choose colour!
I’m kicking off the series with the reasons the LIGHT probably did NOT change the colour. Because this is the most pervasive colour myth that comes up over and over.
Do paint colours interact with the light? Well yes they do. But if you know what questions to ask to get the colour right in the first place, the light will instantly be off the hook.
