I’ve been stuck in a monochrome mood for a while now. My flat is almost devoid of any colour. Black, white, grey and natural wood are so easy to live with. I like the clean, Scandi feel and it’s easy to mix vintage pieces with new. Yes, it’s pretty safe and sometimes not very cheery and whenever I’m given a homey gift that might err on the side of colour caution, I have a mini freak out inside. (how’s that gonna fit in with my carefully crafted, muted scheme!?) But now that it’s grey and gloomy outside, I’m tempted to relax a little and embrace a touch of colour into my life/flat. What do you think of this colour combo?
A tiny touch of neon can instantly make a room feel more lively. Fortunately, the way to work this trend isn’t full-on 80′s and garish. Apply it with a little restraint by adding just one piece in a room of otherwise neutral shades. I think I could almost live with that.Read more →
