I tend to not have a particular colour palate in my home, if I like something I find a place for it where I think it would work; there are no real rules. A friend of mine however has always stuck to neutrals but it’s been pretty much out of fear of getting it wrong. She’d like to bring some more colour into her home without anything over the top so I suggested introducing one more dominant colour into the home and inturn others will naturally follow. Blue was my first recommendation because I think it works well with neutrals and it also happens to be a colour she loves.
I couldn’t use any of the furniture that she has in her living room for the example however I’ve used a similar style for the sideboard and her round coffee table. At the moment she has a small modular lounge in beige that is looking rather tired so I’m suggesting that when she updates, she opt for a shade of blue for the new one to help tie in the look and because the living room is quite small and she lives alone, I think it would be best to move away from the modular along with keeping the room rather minimalist. On top of this look, an occasional chair could be brought in for when she has guests.
It was actually a fun little exercise for me to do but I’d love to have your thoughts. If you had to bring in one main colour to a mainly neutral room, what would it be?
Blowing each one of you a Valentines kiss from me to you! Have a great weekend everyone.
