ColourMatch Personality Test - Colour Campaign with Karen Haller. This opens a new browser window.

On Friday the findings of the nationwide survey carried out by ColourMatch from Argos and myself on what people really think about their homes were revealed. Following on from that I worked closely with the team at ColourMatch to create a fun way to find the colours that match your personality for you to use in your home.

Colour is so important in our everyday life. It has a profound effect on our mood, how we feel and our behaviour.

Give the research found that 75 per cent of people are primarily concerned with what others think of their home, I’ve put together five top tips to help you create a home that is an expression of you. You’ll be able to pick colours with confidence to express your personality.

5 Top Tips to add Personality and Colour in Your Home

1. Simply add colour
The simplest and easiest way to instantly add your own personality to your home is through colour. Adding colour to your home doesn’t mean getting the paintbrushes out. It can be as simple as buying a bunch of flowers, a colourful bowl of fruit or home ware accessories.

2. Trust your instinct
We all have different personality traits and behaviours. So pick the colour tones that resonate with your personality, those you are instinctively drawn to. This means they’ll have a positive impact on how you feel and how you behave in your own home. If you’re unsure, you can find out your perfect personality colour through the ColourMatch test on

3. Use colour to match you mood
You only need a splash of colour to change the mood of a space. Something as simple as scatter cushions on your sofa, a colourful kettle in the kitchen or a lamp in the living room can instantly change the mood of a room and how it makes you feel. That’s why I’ve been working with ColourMatch from Argos to make it even easier to find your ‘perfect colour’.

4. Decorating your home is an extension of you
So many of us create a home to make other people happy. They aren’t living in it, you are. Take your time finding the things and the colours you love. You’ll be creating a home that nurtures you, that loves you back.

5. Have fun
Colour isn’t something to be fearful of. Experiment. If it doesn’t feel right then play around with the colour tones, the proportions, the placement until it feels right for you.

    I’m a perfection maintainer, as you must be, judging from your colour branding!
