Complementary colours, mustard and blue create a vivid and energizing atmosphere. The deep blue sets up a calming and whimsical surrounding, lifted by the touches of mustard. To achieve this playful and welcoming feeling, create a light colour background like a painters canvas, play with neutrals and add a splash of bold yet sophisticated colours.
There is a general trend of people moving away from grey and very neutral schemes and increasingly embracing bolder, deeper-hued tones for walls and kitchen cabinetry, rather than limiting bolder colours to accent accessories and cushions. This is a guest room I recently completed in a traditional country house setting, although the colour would work just as well in a city bedroom or study. The depth of pigment in the salmon peach walls lends a masculine tone to what could otherwise be quite a feminine room and the overall effect is more modern.
