I’m having a colour moment today. Perhaps it’s the drab and dreary grey day (has anyone else had enough with this rain already?!), and so I thought I’d treat my eyes to some wonderful colour from my design library, and share with you not one but four featured rooms of the week, all with different layers of colour, texture and feel.
Colour encompasses life, with all its feelings and moods. It has infinite possibilities and manifestations and it can awaken or subdue our desires. It can refresh or it can relax. Not many of us think in depth about colour. Yes, we often have our favourite colour or a colour we naturally gravitate to, but few take time to understand the complexities of colour.
Colour can play hide and seek between the candid and the vulnerable, it can be both nostalgic and noble, luxurious and sophisticated. The complexity of colour can be explored through its multiple layers of shade, tone, and saturation.
The absence of colour creates an immense void ~ imagine a white sheet of paper. It contains every possibility and flirts at what could be, and is a foundation on which to build up your scheme.
A singular colour can be powerful, dazzling, striking and intense – often monochromatic schemes are very masculine. Paired with a complimentary colour, you can create a balances or you can also ‘clash it up’ to make a loud statement.
How does colour revive your life and influence your lifestyle?
