Interior / May 12, 2018 / .
What most of us do not understand is that interior design takes a very keen and knowledgeable eye. We may be out shopping and see something we love, but that does not necessarily mean that it will look perfect in our home. Interior designers understand how color, lighting, room size, scale, and placement all affect how items look in a room and dictates whether they will make or break a room design.
Vivid colours, organic and earthy shades and textured fabrics work so well in this houseboat interior; mellow yellows, blues and greens compliment natural woods with an ease and elegance we could not assume would work quite so well. And they are all very on-trend right now. One thing I have noticed this year is the use of layering, from floor coverings to bedding, cushions and throws, which adds dimension to a room and gives depth to a design. Do not think to have seen this amount of mixing of styles and tones to create such eclectic styling, in a very long time, but inspired by it. If you are a lover of colour and texture, you could not be happier this season with such a vibrant display in the world of interiors.
While it is really fun to look through showrooms that are full of brand new modern furnishings, do not get carried away and buy everything at one time and one place. Doing this results in a common interior design mistake buying everything matchy, resulting in a home that lacks character. How do we add character? Slowly, over time. It can take years to have your home fully complete and fully designed.
Blue-black colour and will be a popular key colour, especially in kitchens. Combined with metallics like polished brass, it can add a luxurious feel to any interior from upholstery to woodwork. This colour can be used with a statement piece or even to dominate a room with walls painted in this sophisticated tone. This deep blue will work well with Ultra Violet as well as pastel hues that are still very much on trend.
