Prints on canvas (http://www.canvasphotoonline.com) is now popular, when deciding on a colour scheme for a space, don't just pick the first colour you can think of, think about the use of the room, the people who will be using the space, and get some sample canvas art. All colours have their own energy and personality, so getting the colour right is the key to a successful space. The list of colours below works for the colour you decorate the space, and also works for the colours on any canvas photo prints (http://www.canvasphotoonline.com) you may be looking at. Try and resist the temptation to paint your favourite colour if it feels wrong for that room, and don't be afraid to ask someone you know for some advice. They may think of something perfect you hadn't considered.

Red: one of the warm seductive colours and works well in a room your passionate in.
Ideal for dinning rooms and kitchens, although works well with red as a main colour with something more subtle as a majority colour. Don't be fooled into thinking red will work in your bedroom however,the colour red is notorious for bringing on nightmares so avoid.

Orange: is great for bright rooms such as kitchens. The warm and bold colour helps stimulate the appetite so works best in areas for food preparation and consumption.Its also great for stimulating the mind and helping to focus, so offices and study's should also be considered.

Yellow: like orange is great for kitchens because of the same reasons, and its also good for small crapped downstairs toilets. The bright and bold colour is best as a full on Big Bird yellow rather than a pale yellow as a mood lifter.

Green: is a good natural colour, and a good nature colour.The vibrant colour helps promote well being and healthy lifestyles. It feels warm and helps sooth.Works well in any relaxing room, bedrooms, living spaces and conservatories.

Blue: is the calm and clean colour. Its refreshing and peaceful, but at the same time comes across as a very cold colour. Works well in areas you'd want to be clean, such as the bathroom, but can also work well in the bedroom because you can awaken feeling refreshed and ready to go. Also consider mixing with striking bright white.

Purple: and violet and the glamour colours. Modern and bold purple has seen a massive rise in popularity in the last decade or so. Helping to get you creative, this rich and slightly feminine colour works wonders in rooms to be cosy in, bedrooms, living room or library/studies are perfect for modern living, but can also work with the more rustic residence.

Pink: being the most feminine colour, but men should note, its a luxurious and very romantic colour. Helping to heighten affection and romance can be mixed with the tranquil calming side. ideal for bedrooms, and expressing your feminine side. If your a little scared of the message it will give off men, try mixing with purples or reds to break it up.

White: is the purest of colours (even though its not technically a colour) and works with any colour, Using off whites to compliment colours can help expand the mood, but stop a colour from over powering a room. Works well anywhere, and especially small rooms (to help make them feel larger) and bathrooms for the clean finish.

Black: is one of the 'in' colours for 2008. 80's black on black style conveyed a sleek and modern feel. Done correct, black can be a timeless classic and feels strong. bold and authoritative. Consider this in your hallways and dining room and match with gold bronze accessories.

Brown: is the earth colour. Warm and homely browns calm you down so work well in relaxing rooms such as the bedroom or living room. Consider a feature wall in a chocolate brown, with he remaining walls in a softer brown, caramel for example.

As well as the full colours, there are 2 types on canvas you can get not mentioned above.

Sepia and Black and White: are the ultimate for subtle art, the lack of colour doesn't grab you as much as something bold, but more often than not, the colour drained aged look sepia can make a picture more about the image than the colour. Works well with urban images in living rooms, dining rooms and bedrooms. Also works really well in B&W with some small bold colours like red and yellow.

Multicoloured and Pop Art: is the modern look. Bold and bright contrasting colours (ie Andy Warhols' yellow and pink Marilyn Monroe) Retro colours are 'in' at the moment, and so are urban photos with flashes of bright and bold colour. Bright colours show a level of confidence in the owner and are a great conversation starter.
