Firstly an apology. I've been feeling pretty yuk for the last 24 hours and so my intentions to continue with NYC postings have gone awry today. Times like this call for a post I've been sitting on for a while, so here it is, a moodboard that covers my favourite passions - colour and nature.
Pick up an interiors or fashion magazine lately and it's blue in a multitude of deep shades that jumps straight out of the page. My regular copy of ElleDecor came through the letterbox recently and I was stopped in my tracks by this combination of colours below on a pamphlet from US paint company Glidden.
I get so excited when I see a strong dark colour contrasting with a delicate light colour and in this instance, indigo and peach together is beautiful and unexpected. The addition of silver connects, bridges the gap between the two extremes of dark mysterious and light angelic hues. What great companions.
It seems to be the norm to team a shade of white ceiling with dark walls, but think how alternative and contemporary an interior would be if subtle pale contrasting colours like this pretty peach were used instead.
I love that the peach has a softening effect and keeps the indigo and silver from seeming too cool and industrial feeling.
Here's Interior Designer Todd Romano's dramatic and successful take on this colour combination in a New York Apartment (See what I did there?).
Have a great weekend folks, hope you have fun. I'm off Glamping here this weekend with a whole bunch of friends, so I need to dose myself up and get packed and prepared for a 2 1/2 hour car ride into the remote Norfolk countryside. See you Monday x
