Bold or Neutral?
It’s really a personal preference. Consider what it is you are trying to achieve and ask yourself the question “How will I feel walking into this space a year from now?” Bold and bright colours do make a statement but will you tire of that?
My philosophy is picking neutral classic colours for paint and larger pieces of furniture such as sofa’s and chairs. There are so many beautiful neutral fabrics with gorgeous texture and tone on tone design. This will always be your foundation and from there your options are endless for adding colour and interest. Introduce colour through your accent pillows, artwork and accessories.
As in fashion, we see trends in décor as well. By following this simple guideline you will always have the option of updating your space to reflect current trends without having to do a complete redesign. This also allows you to have some fun with the change of seasons. Add your cozy throws, pillows and holiday artwork for fall and winter. For spring and summer lighten things up with some fresh and colourful pillows, accessories and fresh flowers. I love to switch things up and move things around every once in a while. Get creative and have some fun – change is a good thing!
