Series: Colour code


Often the starting point for an inspiring interior scheme is a colour. Colour can really make an impression on a space whether used in moderation or with great gusto. Each approach can set the tone of a room, whether work, rest or play. It can be used to draw attention to certain aspects of an environment creating a focal point, or delicately, bringing a sense of harmony and rhythm. Accent colour can help a scheme feel unified and a dynamic play with two or more colours can bring each one to life. 

Our Colour Code series takes a look at interesting tones and hues; the 'new' discoveries that pique our interest, their complementary counterparts and those go-to shades we fondly rely upon. 

This month on the stopping place - Vermillion. A balanced partnership of red and orange pigments, it’s a colour that asks to be seen. Small doses work wonderfully well, be it a standalone object or upholstered piece. Pair it with neutral materials - light oak, pale sheepskin, tactile linen - to keep the feeling fresh and welcoming. Layer it with jewel-like brights for greater impact.
