All the decorating magazines are raving on about colour…it’s back, you need it and neutrals are so over. Hmmmm…this may well be the way they see it, but many of my design clients are not surrounding themselves with loads of bright colours. And that bright red velvet sofa…they’re taking a pass.
So often I hear clients say that they want their home to be a retreat, a quiet oasis from the craziness of the world. Colours such as creams, warm greys, soft aquas and wheat are what they are choosing.
As much as I love colour, I just can’t live with it. Sure, in a showroom, I’ll be the first to run over to the pair of chartreuse chairs and drool all over them. But in the end it’s not what brings me tranquility in my home. I say if loads of colour is your love, then go for it. But if colour doesn’t do it for you, don’t be afraid to buck the trend.
