Q. I am crazy about white colour. Can I paint the entire interior in my favourite white or does it have to be just one wall? Please suggest tones of paint in different rooms if only white is not advisable. — Namrata

A. The colours of rooms are a direct reflection of one's personality. While most of us may not spend a lot of time thinking about room colour, it affects us every day. Room colour can influence our moods and our thoughts.

Colour affects people in many ways, depending on age, gender, ethnic background and climate. Certain colours (or groups of colours) tend to elicit a similar reaction from most people; the variations come from the shades or tones used. This is why it’s so important to choose colours wisely when it comes to decorating.

Only white shade will make your life monotonous. Even White House and Taj Mhal have spectrum of colours inside.


Avoid using too many colours if your bathroom is small. Instead, paint a dado on the bottom third of each wall in your chosen colour and paint the remaining two-thirds in white. Blues and greens being tranquil and clean are popular choices for bathrooms. Being cool colours, they can also make a small bathroom appear more spacious.


Choose colours that are conducive to sleep. Most light and pastel shades are ideal for bedrooms. Blue is a popular colour choice for bedrooms because of its soothing qualities. However, if you have trouble getting up in the morning, you may wish to add an invigorating accent to get you out of bed.

Dining rooms

Red stimulates the appetite and is a good choice for dining rooms. Combined with gold cutlery, a dramatic air of formality will result. Midnight blue or gold are also dramatic colour schemes for night-time dining. Remember, in any dining room the table will be the focal point.

Family rooms

Families tend to spend a lot of time in this part of the home, so a bright uplifting colour scheme is recommended. Choose mid tone colours that will minimise the appearance of finger marks, animal fur and general light scuffing. Avoid using very dark or very light colours. Use patterned curtains and furnishing fabric in place of plain fabrics.


The kitchen is where you will tend to spend a lot of time. Bright, invigorating colour schemes can boost energy levels when you have a lot of cooking and cleaning to get through. Glossy surfaces, such as laminated cabinetry, will reflect more light and look different to low sheen painted walls, so it is important to be careful when trying to match colours in different materials. Sometimes it is better to select a tone lighter or darker rather than trying to create an exact colour match.

Living rooms

Paint a feature area in an area between the two adjoining rooms or spaces to create a natural colour break. Living rooms are the ideal place to create focal points or feature areas; choose light and dark colours if desired.
