Yes, I am still on my blue and green – or here, blue and teal- kick! I just can’t stop thinking about these colours. Though it probably doesn’t help that today I’ve been working on a room that features lots of teal! I’ve also mentioned it before, but I also adore abstract art paired with antiques and traditional furniture, so this room (above) really appeals. This might be one to try at home! And yes, I know I still haven’t been brave enough to share my diy abstract art! I’ll get there.
Speaking of bravery, I always admire people who paint every room in their houses a different bold but beautiful colour. I dream about this sort of thing but have always had resale in my mind in every house we’ve had, so have never given it a try. I love this approach in older homes where there are lots of smaller spaces leading into one another, rather than a big open-plan room.
I’m drawn to rooms like this one because they demonstrate how effectively you can decorate on a budget- not that I know that this room was done on a budget, but you could replicate this easily at home. The wall colour matching the rug gives instant co-ordination. White sofas are the chameleon of decorating (I need one)- you can change the entire look but keep the same sofa! Then choose an accent colour – here it’s yellow – and paint a pair of vintage mirrors and a pair of cane chairs off ebay and voila! Just add in some accessories and your stylish room is complete. I love this stuff.
And finally, a dose of teal chinoiserie just because that’s my obsession at the moment..
Have a wonderful weekend x
