WHEN it comes to home interiors, everyone has their own style and personal preferences.
While some prefer to keep things neutral and modern, others are more daring and like to make quite the statement using bright, bold colours.
But if you’re hoping to sell, there’s one paint colour you should avoid.
所以, are you guilty?
According to Michael Rolland, interiors expert and Managing Director of The Paint Shed, the offending colour is a certain shade of pink.
据报道 The Express, a recent study conducted by The Paint revealed the top 10 colours that homeowners say would put them off a property.

“Fuschia, a bright pink, came out on top with nearly half of respondents choosing this shade out of the 60 they were presented with,” Michael explained.
“When it comes to mass appeal, the bright and bold miss the mark.”
Other colours that should be avoided according to the survey results include neon pink, neon yellow, lime green and scarlet.
Hot pink, electric orange, 黑色的, lemon and electric blue were also in the top ten paint colours to steer clear of.
Paint expert Michael went on to urge homeowners to remember that anyone looking to buy will need to be able to envision themselves living in the house for years to come.
But he warns this will be much harder if there are bold colours or garish wallpaper covering the walls.
“They will also be considering the cost of redecoration, which after the other fees associated with buying a property is not going to persuade them to put in an offer,“ 他加了.
