Interior / June 13, 2018 / Oriane
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.
Kitchens are busy places, both practically and visually, so when designing one for real life, not just Instagram, try to inject colour in places it can easily be changed up when the mood takes me. These neon yellow handles are laminate pieces cut to size then sprayed with car paint and glued in. Experimenting is a great way to find what works for you and this is an easy and inexpensive way of doing so. Another big colour trend kitchens is metal. Distressed metal, such as these old copper saucepans will make a new kitchen look less sterile and give the space a unique, luxurious feel. Combine with a copper sink and tap and your space is instantly updated.
