Ana Saiao Talks Colour with Havwoods

Ana Saiao, the Founder of The Colour Palette, discusses her colourful journey within the design industry with Havwoods and how floor colour can impact the feel of a room.

When selecting colour for a floor, or in general, hue, tonal value. and chroma are three key elements to be factored in. In a residential space, Ana’s advice is to select a low saturated (soft) colour with a high to intermediate tonal value.

“Usually, people see colour as a creative discipline however there is definitely a scientific ground to it. I like to understand the meaning of things not just ‘use my eye for colour’ or ‘trust my instinct’. We can learn how to ‘read’ colour and understand the principles behind it.”
