Interior / June 19, 2018 /
This image sums up spring. The soft and delicate pastels are feminine but not saccharine. The colour palette is beautifully calming for a bedroom and the warm brass tones add to the sense of luxury. The contrasting textures are so important, crisp white cotton sheets contrast with the lux velvet headboard and throw. I always like to add an edge to feminine interiors and the sharp lines of the bedside table and light work well as a juxtaposition to the soft furnishings. The bespoke cushion in cut velvet fabric also serves to toughen up the scheme and adds a wonderful pop of bold colour. This look is easy to achieve as there is so many lovely brass fixtures and tables at the moment. Mix up the hard and soft textures and always throw in something bold to a soft-hued scheme.
Have you ever painted a room in a bold, bodacious color? If you did, how long did it take for you to pick up the paint brush again, covering the once-loved color with something more calm? Another example of bold-gone-wrong— the bright red couch that you thought you just had to have. Fast-forward three years later—yeah, you are pretty sick of it now are not you?
