Splash of colour!

April 10, 2013

Morning folks! all very tired in the Hutton household today! my 6 year old is having nightmares in the middle of the night, it’s almost like going through the baby stage again (without the nappies) which we thought was long gone! So what with being extremely busy and working on shop in the evening we’ve also got broken sleep to tend with! as they say “it never rains but it pours” Although I’m not complaining as I much prefer to be rushed off my feet but please the nightmares have to go!!

I thought I would talk about splash of colour mainly because I stumbled across these pictures whilst researching for a project. The pic’s below all feature the colour yellow, which is a tricky one to get right as there are so many shades of yellow, go to pale and it’s yuk and the bright sunshine yellow can work but use too much of it and it’s overkill! As I have probably said many a times when working with colour this is a perfect way to add colour into a scheme without having to slap a bright colour on the wall which can be a costly mistake! Start with a limited neutral pallet (darker if you can, even if it’s just a one jump up the paint shade card, it will make a huge difference) then add the splash of colour! Take a look below.

ImageCan you see what I mean about going darker on the walls, the right hand side colour jumps out so much more! If if take a close look they have also added splashes of other colours within the accessories which slightly throws it off balance! for me it totally works!


A much more classic interior but again the splash of colour works, so no matter what your taste it’s something you can experiment with, and if you are really brave try adding a colour in on a wash basin!! Have a great day!
