The use of colour in interior decor is extremely important for bringing personality and character to a room. Even simply adding a pop of colour can change an interior space dramatically, whether it be through a daring paint colour choice or by adding a variety of home accessories and furniture. Previous interior colour trends have seen minimalistic neutral interior colour schemes and pastel colour palettes, we have a feeling this years interior colour trends will be a lot more daring.
The reason this fresh contemporary style dining room was designed in this striking modern style was that it formed part of a new rear extension with Bi-fold doors leading onto the rear garden. Light streams in through the back of the property, thus allowing a strong vibrant fuchsia pink colour to be used as the feature wall. The Italian clear glass pendant lights complement the white gloss family dining table with Aram chairs in black and white. Art bought from galleries in London give it a charming and welcoming look and the sculptural black ceramic vintage vase with fresh cherry blossom creates a stunning backdrop for family entertaining.
With consumers becoming more aware of how their throw-away shopping habits affect the planet, is already seeing a move towards handmade and eco-friendly products that have character and longevity. Imperfections are being embraced, and natural finishes such as these raw pink plaster walls are cossetting in our hectic lives. Toughen them up with a contrasting element, hard with soft. Hard materials seen here such as leather, steel and wood are contrasted by the soft hand-woven jute rug, linen cushions and houseplants. Tones of terracotta, cream and sage work well with this pink palette and can be added to your room with throws, rugs and cushions. And if you want to add a touch of glamour, throw in a couple of brass candlesticks or picture frames.
You can literally turn any wall of your home into your own personal art gallery. Everyone should display some form of art in their home, whether it is a rare oil painting or a cherished drawing from your childs pre-school days. The road block that most encounter is how to properly hang art. The best way to ensure there are no mistakes, and nasty nail holes to fill, is to trace and cut-out the frames outline on paper. Simply tape the paper cut-outs onto your wall, trying numerous placement options until you have the desired outcome.
