A colour choice that matches the era makes it a more natural fit.
Popular colours for Mid-Century Modern furniture are mustard, orange and brown.
A bold colour could be overwhelming on a large surface area.
But on a smaller piece or when used as an accent, bright colours could have an impact.
Colour changes the entire feel of furniture.
How do you want it to feel?
Moody and dramatic? Light and airy?
Decide on that and it narrows your choices.
Pieces of furniture aren’t just by themselves.
The colour must work for the setting that they’re in too.
What are the key colours in the room?
Are there other things that you will pair it with? Such a wallpaper or a piece of art.
Pick out the colours in those elements.
Decide whether you want to contrast or complement them.
Look in your closet!
What colour do you see the most?
That's a good choice for furniture for you.
You have two choices:
1. Choose a colour you love and hope someone else likes it too
2. Go neutral and appeal to the masses
Use an online tool to test the paint colour on a photo of the actual piece of furniture.
You’ve chosen the colour. Now Google it.
There'll be photos of how other people have used it.
How it looks in bright light, with dark wax, with a gloss finish etc.
It’s those details that will tell you if you’ve chosen the right one.
