  • Purple & Blue
master bedroom
romantic and peaceful shades of mauve
The master bedroom is all about harmony rather than contrast. The combination of blue and mauves is calming but also quite sensual. Lilac brings a romantic, restful mood, while a tonal scheme in shades of pale purple is gentle on the eye, with one or two subtle accents of turquoise and lime green in the bedspread and cushions. The feature wall is deep blue - a great backdrop to the richly patterned bedcover and offering a slightly masculine feel.



bedroom

a peaceful mood
Soft pale green is an ideal for a bedroom - cool and calming. Here, the feature wall is a subtle green, and there are accents of ocean and lime. The existing blind is dark wood but placing translucent curtains in front will create a mood that is
warm and welcoming.



craft room

a new tranquility
Blue is natural choice for a working environment; it is associated with restful thought and, provided the right shade is chosen, it is cooling rather cold.
Using a soft aqua for the deep blue feature wall will revitalize the room, and will provide a serene backdrop to counteract the inevitable clutter of equipment and stationery. The translucent curtains, meanwhile, contribute to the ethereal mood and also provide soft light for working and working out. Lots of off-white on the walls and ceiling lift the space. The splashes of contrasting colours provided by the easy chairs stand out to great effect.
