It's amazing what the right colour can do for a house or a room. Firstly, you need to decide the vibe or feeling you want the room to generate, secondly it should be part of an overall colour palette for the whole house.
We all love contrasting colours and different styles all at once, but it doesn't mean that they can all go into one house and coexist! it is also easy to overthink combinations and permutations of colours and textures and in the end just be confused.
Lets have a look at an example of a very simple palette and how that impacts the look of a small apartment in Sweden.
Crisp white ceilings, feature cornices and architraves contrast with a beautiful blue hue. The colour is fresh but muted with a soft grey so it is neither too bright nor too dark.
The furniture is at a minimum but it feels warm and inviting with the layering of fabrics and shades of blue. The softness is also felt with the white washed floors and vintage furniture and doors.
Consistent colour palette carried through the apartment makes the space feel larger and odd angles and different textures don't stand out, but rather blend in together.
The furniture is kept white or has slimline black metal frames to minimise their profile. This is replicated in the lighting design which features stand-alone lights and small pendants in every room.
What I love is the use of greenery throughout the apartment and on the sun drenched patio.
