Going all-in on one bold colour is a courageous idea and as this demonstrates, the results can be stunning.
The trick to success here is in how the texture of the accessories and the architectural detailing bring dimension and depth to the room, almost entirely painted in Resene Virtuoso. Imagine the look without that pressed tin wall design and the mouldings, or the ornate finishing of the tables; It would immediately feel slightly oppressive and flat. Those details bring it to life, then the addition of texture in the cushions, flower arrangement, art and accessories in slightly lighter or complementary shades add an interesting tonality.
For this all-on-colour approach, think carefully about the accessories and style. Keep them to a tight theme whether it’s shabby chic, ornate like this example, or all crisply architectural lines and clean lines.
