Choosing paint colours for your home can be challenging so having some understanding of colour theory and which colours work well together is a real help. You can combine any set of colours together according to personal taste – there are no absolute rules. However you may find our colour wheel helpful in trying out colour schemes and design ideas. It helps to show how the primary colours of red, blue and yellow can be combined with secondary and tertiary colours to create a variety of room layouts.
