Green with Envy

It has always been a concern for many that if you welcome a dark shade paint into your home then you fear making the room look smaller, and perhaps the wall to ceiling colour could be oppressive. However, these three interiors prove this to not be the case. Each room is bought alive with colour, textures and prints and the block colour is broken up by the art on the walls and the eclectic furniture that each room holds.

Light/Dark

The union of light and dark is one of my favourite combinations to play with in interiors. It can be dramatic or subtle, dependent on the colour contrast you go for and can be a way of making a real impact in a room, whether it be using paint, wallpaper or fabrics…

Wishing you all a lovely week!

Blues

I love subtle blue pastels in this collection of images, it’s calming whilst also making an impact within the surroundings. The hues are bought alive with the contrast of creams and whites, whether introduced by fabrics and textures or light.

Wishing you all a lovely weekend!

Stock Pile

As soon as I saw this I had to share it with you all! I love the quirky touch to the pile by the random burst of colour painted onto the side of the wood. Not only is it fun, but it also makes an everyday view (if you’re lucky to have an open fire, that is!) into a stunning focal point for a home.

I hope you’re all having a lovely week!

Recharge

I thought the perfect way to begin this week would be with a selection of images dedicated to the beautiful colour of turquoise. As well as being a vibrant colour, it’s also happy and friendly. It’s a colour that feels like it recharges our spirits and is the perfect addition to add to your wardrobe or home in 2013…
