With 2020 a washout and more people working from home than ever, millions of people are now at home looking at the same four walls. The Darkside introduces a statement to your home a little bit of drama that no one should be afraid of. Did you know that it’s not all about the colour? It is imperative that you have the right undertones in the shades that you choose. Your snug or office could be the perfect space that you can transform with a dark undertone and sensational moody lighting that you will truly be a peace with.
This year’s Pantone colour is classic blue, I mean we have all seen the blue’s in the past – navy, royal blue, I mean they can be one of the same but NO! Let’s talk about classic blue or as many of us may put a link to Stiffkey blue by Farrow & Ball. It really is a blue to be proud of, pink, green, mustard, burgundy are all the must have accessories to make this colour speak volumes. Let’s be Blue together and talk Stiffkey Blue.
We see colours come and go so much that some of us get a little scared from time- to-time about what will have some longevity to it. What am I taking about here? If you’re like me, you like changing more than the scatter cushion on the back of your sofa quite frequently and that’s ok to do. Is it just ok to go white? The answer is YES! You can turn any room in to a modern Scandi living space or turn your Victorian hallway to your modern vision as long as it’s the right white and done in the right way with modern accessories and the right flooring.
Your hallway is much more than an entrance or corridor to the other rooms in your home and often it gets left behind and forgotten.
Let’s look at it like this. You have your lovely snug which you adore and let’s not forget the fantastic kitchen you’ve just spent a small fortune on.
Wouldn’t it be lovely to connect these rooms with a hallway that is beautiful in its own right? Forget the magnolia or white walls, your hallway is the one place you can go wild – from dark ceilings to moody earthy tones. The staircase is your hallway’s focal point.
