This colour has captured the hearts of the Instagram generation and interior designers alike. Millennial Pink provides a fantastic way of introducing a feeling of serenity and fun to any space. The brilliant thing about pink is that it can be cold or warm. The more muted pinks hark back to the 1950s. They work wonderfully with other similar colours like teal and greys, which have a vintage feel to them. Hot pinks add a bit of spice to an interior and are a subtler way of adding drama to a room if red is not your thing.
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.
The indigo blues are still in fashion but recently we tend to use it through accessories and art, rather than large joinery items or furniture pieces. Together with an element of gold or brass, these create a rich composition, even in a new build apartment. Scaling it down and refining rich tones helps to animate the atmosphere while ensuring that even the most conservative of clients have a fashionable interior. We will always ensure that those pieces are easily replaceable if the fashion changes. This style of combining trends/colours gives us an opportunity to be creative within our environment.
Be bold. A dramatic sitting room with a basalt painted feature wall and citrus yellow shelving to highlight. An electric fire brings the room to life and looks fantastically real with its flickering flames and perfectly sawn, round logs that we recessed into the wall on each side. Leather sofas sit elegantly in the space with zingy velvet cushions that pop. I love the way this room sets a formal yet cosy atmosphere. Socialise with friends or recline the sofas and it is the perfect cinema room. To get the look: use dark paint, neutral flooring and furniture. Then let it pop with accessories. Add a fire if you can for warmth and a beautiful focal point.
