Inspiration 04 April 2019

Do you dare to go bold this Spring?

Create our Spring look, Rusty Hues, using these simple steps.

Our Rusty Hues look is all about, you guessed it, warm rust coloured tones! From apricot to mustard, it’s a look full of energising shades, all inspired by Pantone’s Colour of the Year, Living Coral.

Go bold with colour!

Don’t be scared to paint every wall! No matter the style or age of your home, painting every wall will always create an impact and adding these warm tones will add extra character to your interiors. We used Russet by Zoffany paint, to create a smooth transition from panelled shelving to flat wall.

‘Mix & Match’ Accessories.

Add another layer of style with interesting accessories in a mix of complementing and contrasting colours. Add pops of blue and green to add a Spring freshness to the overall colour palette.

Neutrals Are Key.

Including neutral elements into a bold coloured space will break up the room, allowing other unique features to shine. We paired our Russet paint choice with our mid grey Dash sofa. By doing this we created a blank canvas for our colourful scatters and throws.

That Scandi Feel.

We think this look works perfectly with a blonde wood finish, which introduces a soft Scandinavian feel, we used Berkeley Natural Oak by Woodpecker on the floors and paired it with minimalistic furniture designs, such as our Cherbourg dining and living range.

A Touch of Metallic

Adding hints of brass and copper through the room will create focus points and help reflect the lovely Spring lighting we’re hoping to see this time of year. Brass will add a contrasting depth of colour to a space with a lot of light, whereas the gold will highlight the warmth within the main colour palette.

Finally, Add Some Texture!

To finish the look, layer up rugs and scatters to create levels of texture throughout the space. Building a cosy atmosphere in quite a minimal room.

The same goes for plants, the greener the better, however, keep the pots simple and maybe experiment with different leaf shapes, think wispy stems or big banana leaves.
