Daylight, glorious daylight – it’s such a transforming feeling to have more hours of daylight that it makes me start to think of my home, and my garden, in a new light and to feel ready for a change and a refresh. And the obvious place to start is with these 3 sumptuous colour palette ideas for your home. We are all drawn to certain colours but it’s not always easy to visualise how to use them in a room scheme or what colours to accent with, or even how to achieve the effect we want, be it moody, colourful, spring like or even dramatic, so Amelia has put together 3 colour palettes to give you ideas, and a reminder of this fab book we reviewed on the blog that helps you to see how colours work together.
Midnight Forest is warm and encompassing with the strong blue walls (Plimsoll, by Paint & Paper Library) whilst being fresh and zingy at the same time with a striking green velvet chair and lots of lush greenery. Greenery, as I’m sure we all know, is the Pantone Colour of the Year (and has always been a favourite of mine) and there is always a hue of green that will work in a colour scheme to enliven and refresh. Faux plants are a really easy easy way to add green to a scheme- no green fingers required.
Pastel Lustre is such a beautiful light, airy colour combo that it’s hard to resist if you’re a pastel kind of girl. The main picture is Calamine by Farrow & Ball which is a lovely soft pink and the smaller pics are Button, by Little Greene which is a warm, almost beige hue. Add a bit of black if you want to make it more grown up and serious or a touch of gold if you want to go the glam way. Or throw it all into the mix for something a bit different.
Green with Envy
Green with envy is Amelia’s take on this colour scheme, and my personal favourite, although I’ve yet to use it in my own home but it’s under consideration as we speak!! The wall colour is Dark Lovage by Conran and is one of those elusive colours that change quite dramatically depending on the light. Nothing says grown up glamour like this strong green/blue colour paired with gold accessories and touches of marble. Certainly not for the faint hearted but oh so dramatic!
So tell me, do you feel inspired? I’m redoing my garden room soon, and I think I’m swaying towards ‘Green With Envy’ as a starting point for the scheme. I’d love to know which colour palette idea is your favourite?
