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.

The blues and greys in this beautiful room have a visually cooling effect which would be especially welcomed in spring and summer.

Choosing deep navy for artwork, upholstery, soft furnishings, décor and even linen will give you a fresh and cooling addition to your neutral interiors. Up the ante by painting your walls in soft, blue-based greys, paired with aged, oak timber flooring and aged or bleached timber accent furniture.
