Are You Warm or Cold??

Every colour can be categorized as either a warm colour or a cool colour. Discover the notes and nuances of both, and use their distinct characteristics to get the look you want.

Warm & Cool 101

 

Warm colours- yellow, orange, red and combinations thereof - breathe energy, positivity and a sense of sunshine into any room.

Cool colours- green, blue and purple—evoke relaxation and calm.

Neutrals like white and grey. 

can also lean warmer or cooler depending on their undertones.

What Are Complementary Colors?

annie-sloan-flat.jpg
colour.jpg
comp 1.jpg
comp 2.jpg

So what does this mean for the decorator? It means that combinations of complementary colors are especially dynamic together, since they play up each other’s intensity. A tiny bit of orange really pops in a blue room and vice versa because your eye wants to see that color. A combination of two complementary colors may be perceived as soothing or balanced, since it simultaneously stimulates different parts of the eye.

What do you think? Feeling inspired to try out one of these bold combos?

Shop CHALK PAINT HERE
colour wheel.jpg

When you look at blue on the color wheel, you’ll see the complementary color is orange. Full chroma blue and orange colors do look good together but it may not be what you want to decorate with but the value of the color in lighter tints, tones and shades will give you lots of options to decorate with. Below we have paired the Oxford Navy dresser with gold frames which appear in the orange family🤍

comp dish.jpg
comp 3.jpg

Here are some samples of softer combinations of complimentary colours from around the shop! Soft pinks and greens are more pleasing than red and green unless it's Christmas.

comp cloths.jpg

Complementary colour works in fashion too!

Your now trained eye will look at colour and pick out complementary colours in pattern, like in the blue and yellow plaid in the jacket shown.

The Idea Ladies get THRIFTY!

Jeannine and Carrie went on a field trip!

Shopping both local and environmentally friendly for preloved décor. See how they recycle, upcycle and enjoy all there is about thrifting.

This year our focus is on being conscious about how we as individual consumers can do our parts. Some change their diet, others look for pre-owned furniture instead of cheaply made fast furniture.

Light and Bright with White Chalk Paint™

Annie Sloan has 3 White Chalk Paint™ colours to choose from as shown below.

Original White: A warm, slightly creamy, traditional white, Original is the colour of old painted furniture. This Chalk Paint™ colour is perfectly paired with Duck Egg Blue, Antoinette and Louis Blue for a delicate old distressed French look.

Pure White: Perfect for modern interiors, this clean, bright white Chalk Paint™ colour makes a crisp contrast to strong hues.

Please note: this Pure has the least covering power of all the colours so may require more than one coat or is best applied over a coat of Country Grey.

Old White: The colour of chalk and gesso, Old White is a soft off-white Chalk Paint™ colour that works with everything. It has no pink or yellow in it so you can use it to lighten any of the other Chalk Paint® colour and create the exact tone for your room. Paint it over Paris Grey for the quintessential French look or add water to create a white wash and bring out the grain in wood.
