Creating a Visually Pleasing Interior - Using Colour (Part 1)

Satara Sales - Tuesday, July 31, 2018

Defining colours and decorating with them is a rewarding experience once you realise what can be achieved using simple shades. Explaining our responses to colour is about an emotional reaction as it is an exact science. There is something special about the personal and mysterious connection between colour and our emotions. We live with colour every day and yet it can be so intimidating. So why does the commitment to colour, especially at home, demand such an act of courage?

The question of context is crucial in choosing the colours that both move you and fit within your environment. Is your home period, modern, rustic or urban? If so you may like to consider a palette that enhances that particular period. An easy way to create colour flow is to use lighter and darker shades of the same colour throughout your home. Colour is a universal language, it stimulates emotions, shapes cultures and forms the background of our world. Quite simply, colour can influence mood, create atmosphere and lift spirits. Seeing colour, using it and surrounding yourself with a personal palette that works for you produces a calming backdrop for daily life. I think of colour as one of my greatest indulgences.

Trend Alerts for 2013 - Emerald Green it's going to be seen

Colleen Johnston - Friday, February 01, 2013
  1. Everyone knows Pantones Color for 2013 is Emerald Green, but the challenge for all us is how will we weave this this into our daily lives or interpret this into our product ranges.  It marries so well with hues of blue and adds a 'pop' to muted greys like this room in the Hampton USA decorated by  Stephen Gambel.
  2. Embellished walls mean wall papers are here to stay, but in 'look at me' florals and geometric patterns,
  3. Neutals in homewares are huge already and such a design staple.  Guranteed to be seen beyond 2013.
  4. Lace is going to be big in interiors - watch out grandma I need that tablecloth!
  5. And Brass - not sure about this but it's early days.
