Three Color Rules, And How To Break Them

Three Color Rules, And How To Break Them

Color rules are made to be broken, right? Now, I’m the first to acknowledge that some color rules are there for a very good reason; don’t mess with them. However, the use of color in your interior spaces is a highly personal choice. For some, the idea of a bright purple room sounds like a horror show.

Rules are made to be broken so here’s three to add to your list.

Craving Colour : Adding Vibe to Your Home

We are surrounded by colour yet many people seem afraid of it. By that I mean, when it comes to using colour in our homes, we play it safe. Why?

Colour adds vibrancy, it makes us feel good – and unless you are specifically renovating ONLY to sell immediately, then you have to live with your choices. Even the word ‘bland’ sounds BLAH!
