How to include these trendy colours in our decor?
- In the living room
Each room has its own function. A sharing space, the living/dining room needs to be warm and inviting. To give depth to this area, it is possible to paint a single wall, in almond green for example, and leave the rest neutral. The dominant colour will catch the eye and stretch out the horizon line. This technique is also advisable for small spaces, such as a small bathroom, for example. In the living room, have some contrast with light coloured furniture such as a lounge chair or designer chair on which you can place cushions with plant-based hues.
- In the kitchen
Without creating too eclectic of a mix, it is possible to repaint the backsplashor a length of wall with a curry yellow or a deep red to pep up or brighten a small kitchen.
