Rooms lit by artificial light
1.Yellow light bulbs and candlelight bring out the best in warm hues like red and orange paint colours. That’s why red is such a popular choice for dining rooms, TV rooms and other spaces 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 – you can go as pale or bright as you like and the colours will look great.
3.LED lights tend to give off a bluish glow, which you can embrace with cool pastels for a contemporary look, or counter with warm yellow paint colours.
Which paints? Try Ruby Fountain 1 for yellow light bulbs, Green Parrot 1 for white light bulbs and [Candy Love 5] (/en/colour-palettes/candy-love-5)] or Desert Island 3 for LED lights.
Once you’ve chosen your Dulux colour, test it out in your room by painting it on a piece of A4 paper, or on the wall, to see how it looks at different times of day under different types of light.
