It’s Easy Being Green
2017 is Pantone’s year to be green. Whilst the “Greenery” swatch is a yellow-based, vibrant colour signifying natures green palette, it also welcomes other tones of green, from darker and more muted, to brighter.
Bleached and Beached
Whilst most homes feature a large degree of neutrals or white, you can highlight the unique features in a home by dialling back the colour in all surfaces, from ceilings, walls and floors, to even furniture.
The Cooling Effect
Nature is bursting to life outside, but not every spring interior has to scream colour. Colour can be used in subdued and measured ways to great effect throughout the warmer months of the year.
Using large, and often very graphic looking, leaves of plants like bird of paradise, palms or ferns can give your home a great deal of impact for very little effort and cost. This is particularly appropriate for that fresh, almost-spring feeling.
Doing it the French Way
A French, or gallery wall feature is a great way to combine treasured pictures and artworks in an interesting way. By unifying frames of different sizes, shapes, colours and textures, you can create large-scale impact from otherwise disparate elements.
