Colour in your home: Yellow

Yellow is a energising, joyful, sunshine colour. It goes well with greys, blues and greens and works well as more of a hint than a block of colour.

Bed sheets, cushions and throws are quick and simple way of adding that hint of yellow to a bedroom.

Colour in your home: Blue

Blue is a calming relaxing colour, but you have to be careful that the lighter blues don’t make your room feel cold. You need to find a happy medium between to cold of a blue and too dark of a blue that will give the feeling of sadness.

Flowers, pillows, candlestick and books add the touches of blue in the above rooms.

The worn, shabby chic look works especially well with this colour. It doesn’t just work on dressers and tables, try it on chairs, outdoor furniture and even doors.

Art Deco Design Style

7e5ea1eb028884b99f0aab3be83d2d8b

Art Deco (c. 1908 – 1935)

 The art deco style of interior design is as much to do with the furniture as the building and structure of the room itself. The style involves sleek angles and lines, symmetry and bold shiny colours. Metal, mirrors and glossy wood, cubist images of buildings and vehicles, along with rugs and furs.
