In this post I’m going to look at COLOUR PAIRINGS.
What goes well with GREEN?
What makes these greens work in the gorgeous lifestyle images from Little Greene shown below?
Fancy some wallpaper with this?
KEEPING IT NATURAL:
This ‘grey-green’ wall colour is perfect for an understated, liveable backdrop in this beautiful kitchen
Paired here with soft white and natural finishes
The chrome cooker and hood sit quietly, whilst the pop of brass provided by the coffee pot acts as a lively counterpoint. Add to that marble and a lush woodgrain on the cabinetry and the balance is perfect
Potted herbs will work beautifully against this paint colour
Chalky finishes for ceramics contribute to the textural feel of this room set and charred wood boards add some definition
Stone colours would also work well in this pared back scenario
Look what a difference a strong colour pairing makes to each colour, making them pop even more individually
The strong pink is echoed in the Ourain rug but elsewhere the pink has been scaled back to softer lilac tones and even a sugar pink on the sofa cushion
The key to using these strong hues and making them work in tandem is by bringing them all together in one place somewhere in your scheme. Here this is achieved using an artwork – the perfect place Even the picture frame colour is teased out into another rug on the floor
A deep dark green window frame and skirting contrast and martial the stronger colours into line – Colour alchemy
