Inspired by colour

As I am sure many of you on twitter will know I am simply mad about pinterest. I love being able to collect together items that not only inspire me but also collect together some of the beautiful products I would love to be able to use in future projects.  For me I love using colour, it adds so much to a room – whether it be a simple bright blast of it in a chair or piece of art or walls painted in a colour so gorgeous you wish you could eat it!  At the moment I am really being drawn to strong and vibrant colours…so my colour to inspire today is BLUE!

As you can tell images like these really helped to inspire the “winter living room” we created below.  It’s strange that most people think of blue as a cold colour – when used like this in a room you could imagine hours sitting by the fire reading, or people watching from the window seats…warm and snug!

Would love to know what you think of the design!

    What a cool post!

    The amazing aussie stylist Sibella Court has created a range of colours (Society Inc. Colours) for the paint company Murobond. They have an amaing selection of blues that I think you would love!

    I am in love with her range called "Indigo Blue" – it reminds me of Japanese Caligraphy ink.

    "Tales of a Sea Gypsy" has some amazing colours in its range – the name says it all. It is very Captain Jack Sparrow! haha

    I love the colour of the walls! What a soothing yet vibrant colour (sounds odd, but true). I like the rug as well…ties in the wall, the white and the floor together. The only thing I would add is a few more pillows for the window seat. I wish I could be in that room right now!

      Hiya Marci! Thank you for the wonderful comments – I actually have a picture of me sitting in that window seat gazing out at the world – is a really great place for the clients to site and relax. Kia xxx
