A New Colour Scheme for Summer – White and Bright

Now summer is here, how about updating your rooms with a bright new colour scheme? White with splashes of bright colours is a simple scheme to pull off and works well in most rooms, but I think it is particularly good for home offices and kitchens.

ImageThis home office is great on several levels, it is a clever use of space in the home, squeezing a functional office into the corner of a room but also includes inspirational colour.  The lovely blue reminds me of the Mediterranean and makes it an uplifting space to be in, no falling asleep over your work here! This would be so simple to achieve, paint the walls brilliant white and choose a colour you love, that has happy memories to paint the shelves and cupboard doors, add some of your favourite things and you have a room to stimulate and inspire creative thoughts and ideas.Image

A white kitchen although a light and bright can be a little cold and uninviting. If it is a room used by a family I think it is a great idea to add some colour to make it a more fun place to be.  A glorious sunny yellow would be a lovely choice to make the room feel more inviting.  In this picture the room is mainly white, but an amazing piece of artwork and some accessories have been used to really bring it to life, and don’t those sunflowers look stunning?
