    Colour of the Week – Lavender

    This week’s colour focus is Lavender. It is one that has challenged me as it’s not a colour I would typically choose for my own home. Lavender is one of the few pastels that is quite difficult to work into a room as it is limited with regard to what neutrals work best. To me, Lavender is the quintessential colour for a little girls bedroom. It is reminiscent of fairy-tales and dreams and works beautifully to create a magical space. However, this week I have challenged myself to find ways Lavender can be used in spaces for adults too. Here’s what I’ve found… Keep it dreamlike and use in old-world settings. The…

    Colour of the Week – Mint

    About this time of year, every year, pastels and gelato inspired colours start hitting the shelves in forms of clothes, accessories, furniture and homewares. Being a spring person, these colours are among my favourites as they are fresh, clean and a welcome break from the greys and blacks we see throughout winter. Mint Green is one that’s great for this time of year as it blends well with the grey tones, but can also be livened up with bright colours for a summer inspired palette. Take a look at the images below to see how mint green transitions the seasons like a pro!

    Colour of the week – Ivory

    Ivory. Best know as the favourite dress colour for most modern brides. This delicious shade of white gets it’s hue from a dash of yellow and just as it complements any beautiful bride, it is also a perfect colour to use as the base for any room due to it’s warm & inviting hue. Not only as a base, Ivory is one of the few colours that works well in a whole room – walls, floors and furnishings included. Below are some of my favourite examples of how this hue can be used. All White – As mentioned above, a room completely finished and furnished in ivory can be pretty all right! The key here…

    Colour of the Week – Lemon Yellow

    Yellow would have to be one of my favourite colours, so much so that most of our wedding featured around the colour. It’s warm, young, fun and used in the right way can be very sophisticated and modern, which was the exact vibe we were going for on the day. However, be warned – yellow can also go oh-so wrong! Pair with blues and you’ll quickly take a step back into the 90’s. Select the wrong shade or use too much of the colour and you could find yourself being over powered by this bright hue. Go a tinge too green or orange, and your whole space could end up…

    Colour of the week – Sky Blue

    Word on the street is pastels are going to be the next big thing. So, following on from last weeks feature on blush pink, we thought it would be fitting for this week’s colour to be pastel blue. Probably the most calming and gentle colour I can think of, pastel blue is a beautiful choice of colour for any home. In the right tone it can be warm or cool and the colour will always have a welcoming and relaxing effect in any room. Be it bedroom, bathroom, kitchen or lounge-room, pastel blue translates to a variety of spaces. The best part about pastel blue is how versatile it is, from coastal or tropical to modern or…

    Colour of the Week: Blush

    Oh stop! You’re making me blush! Today’s colour of the week is blush pink. And there’s no doubt about it, this colour is definitely one for the girls. Used in children’s rooms or nurseries, blush is whimsical and dream-like. BUT you don’t necessarily have to be a little girl to have a room featuring this colour. Right now, blush is having a huge moment, and has been deemed “the colour of the season” (by none other than Coco Republic). Teamed in the right way, blush pink can be elegant and sophisticated and today, I’m going to show you how. However, before that (and because I really just can not resist), here are a couple of to-die-for blush pink…

    Colour of the week – Emerald Green

    Hey Folks, We thought it would be great to start a little series that goes by the name “Colour of the Week”. To kick things off we will start with Emerald Green, Pantone’s colour of the year for 2013. I would suggest that Emerald Green is a colour that is best suited to living spaces such as your living & lounge rooms, dining room or kitchen. That being said, in small doses anything goes! Emerald Green is a colour that we don’t see super frequently in interior spaces. If you were wanting to decorate with this colour, inspiration could be a little lacking, however, that’s not say you can not create a…
