Colours – June

If you know me, you’ll know I’m a big fan of colour. Whether it’s teaming bright pinks with greens, yellows and dark blues or oranges with purples I love a good colour combo. Even if I’m going neutral I love a specific mink shade or a tonal grey-on-grey ensemble.

It doesn’t really come as a surprise then that I’m addicted to Design Seeds.  If you’ve never been on, I’m warning you – it’s amazing! It’s all about finding inspiration in the every day, and is a great source for unusual colour combinations.

Here are some of my favourite seeds from this month.

I love dark blue and yellow. Love love love. I’m hoping to incorporate this somewhere in my home – perhaps the bathroom or the kitchen?

I have a bit of a thing for pineapples. I think this colour combo is the type of thing I’m after in the study; bold, edible tones. Yum.

This is definitely one for the living room. We have most of these colours already incorporated, with grey walls, charcoal and ox blood sofas and green curtains. I love the really light kinky grey as a cool element.

I’m really liking this salmon colour, and I’m thinking with our blue, white and gold bedroom it would really liven the place up a bit.

Okay, wow! The tones of these colours but their contrasting hues really makes an impact, like someone has toned-down the contrast on an autumn day. It’s colourful without being bright, bold and brash. Great for a calming spare room, maybe?

 

imageFinally, something maybe more classic and floral. I love a purple and green combo and these vintage tones are elegant but bold against the dark backdrop. Perhaps this is a good bathroom combo, with the neutral tiles but bright accessories.

 

Let me know which is your favourite, and be sure to check out Design Seeds!
