How to be confident with colour

It’s amazing how the use of colour in our surrounding can change the way we feel, it’s one of the reasons we love Interior Design. Our environments can make us happy, lift our mood and help inspire us in our daily lives. At Cat Dal Interiors we believe colour is a powerful communication tool, it directly connects us to our feelings and emotions. We strive to develop colour palettes that have positive connotations and suit the style of the property.

So, what’s behind the psychology of colour in Interior Design? Dark colours have the potential to create cosy, intimate and sophisticated spaces, while lighter colours can make a space feel larger, more airy and cheerful. We like to use colour to reflect our client’s personality and work alongside them to make comfortable design decisions.

Whether you’re looking to create a whole new look or want push yourself out of your comfort zone, choosing the right colour scheme for your home can be difficult. We help our clients every step of the way to create their dream home. We consider the more subtle ways to add colour to a space, through beautiful artworks, stand-out furniture fabrics and playful accessories. Layering these different design aspects can really help add depth and confidence to a space.

Our fabulously dramatic bathroom design in a recent residential project, shows taking a risk can really pay off. The dark and moody tones create a striking atmospheric space, bursting with drama and style. The grey marble vanity unit adds movement and a sense of understated luxury.

In our recently complete Imperial Wharf apartment, we used colour to create a cool and eclectic statement for our client. The blue tones make the bedroom feel calm and relaxing, we feel it’s important that our bedrooms have resting colours to help restore and clear the mind after a busy day.

For the living room we went bold and stylish, by layering pale pink touches with luxury blues and pale timbers. Our Scandinavian twist creates an open plan living space that feels lively and sociable.
