Rooms that get the late afternoon sun
These rooms will generally be cooler in the mornings then warm up later in the day, so go for sunny yellows to create a bright, welcoming morning space, or cooler shades for a soothing place to relax later on.
Rooms lit by artificial light:
1. Yellow light bulbs and candlelight bring out the best in warm hues like reds and oranges. That’s why red is such a popular choice for rooms that tend to be used in the evening.
2. White light bulbs give off a light that’s closer to daylight, making your colour choices more versatile than with other types of bulb – you can go as pale or bright as you like.
3. LED lights tend to give off a bluish glow, which you can embrace with cool pastels for a contemporary look.
