Abode's Unity of Colour

Good evening and welcome to this week’s edition of Abode. To celebrate Valentine’s week, we wanted our blog to show the special unity of colour seen in decorating and interior design. We have found three different images from Pinterest that capture colours complementing one another, just as loved ones do. As usual with our blog, our images are intended for inspiration purposes to help our readers get some ideas in ways to style their home. At First 4 Blinds, we might not be able to replicate these images completely, but we can always offer advice on the best way to apply these trends to your unique home.

To begin our Valentine’s special we thought it would be best to start with this gorgeous pink and white living room. We love the way that the soft pastel pink brings a feeling of youthfulness to the room, especially when paired with the brightening white walls and accessories. Pink is remarkably versatile and does not necessarily make a room feel overly feminine. Instead, it adds a gentle and comfortable feel to the space. We also really like the concealed pink accents through the image, from the flowers to the cushions and even within the rosy glow of the copper furnishings. It all unites to form a well presented and inviting room. As a side note: when it’s used sparingly as seen above, black accent pieces can add a really modern focal point.

Moving on now to a bright and beautiful bathroom that makes its metallics and mirrors look magnificent. In this image, the design of the mirror adds a sincere opulence to the room and bounces light through the room. We love how polished and clean this look is, perfect for a stylish spa bathroom. Complete with a simple roman blind, the room is framed and kept bright, yet it remains private and personal.

And last but not least in our celebration of the unity of colour, we have this beautiful bedroom. It’s both peaceful and positive with its gentle yellow tones. Adding the feeling of a sunny day to your room, whatever the weather. This image in a similar way to the pink living room uses accessories to bring the look together. The happy sunflowers are vibrant against the more subtle yellow paint. And the folds of cosy bedding in a medium yellow shade covers the whole range of the colour. We love the way that this room maximises its natural light - a tip we always recommend, to make any room look its best.
