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 - Olive. The versatile friend. It partner’s well with just about anything. Easy and timeless, it’s a true understated classic. Equally at home in a fifth floor Barbican apartment or gracing a relaxed nook of a country kitchen. Opt for matt-finish tiles on walls or floors, or intricate Indian block-prints for curtains and upholstery.
