Welcome to the new week. As of this writing, the sun is out, the skies are blue, and the house is still full of dust, but we’re reaching the decorating stage of our kitchen renovation. After a very stressful day, it’s finally arrived and we have a weekend of laundry and sleep and we’re ready to roll again. Yes that’s the excitement around here these days It’s related to.. Please don’t knock.
I’ll start with this bathroom that stopped me on the scroll track the other day.i am a big fan of everything studio duggan As you can see, when you access the copper bath, which is also in this room, which is the original post, this particular image has the power to confirm that there is one dramatic or eye-popping piece per room. was to show
Long-term readers will remember the six-foot-tall palm tree lamp from the old house that caught their eye in the living room. It doesn’t have to be expensive, but it has to be there. Now, this basin isn’t cheap, but it really elevates this room.
I’ve found some alternatives if you’re interested.this is 129 pounds victorian plumbing (from Marble Effect) compared to this wall mounted version Russo Stone For almost £900. As always, it’s important to work out what your budget allows and how you want to allocate the different parts of it. I mentioned before that I would rather make a shower curtain than spend money on an expensive glass shower screen. Alternatively, you can choose an incredible washbasin that will give you joy every time you pass by.
Then there’s the slide into the classic colors of Spring and Easter. This was caused by the little box of chocolate eggs I was given last week and the sudden appearance of daffodils at every supermarket checkout. As many of you know, this slightly washed-out, muddy version was very soothing as I’ve been rambling around the house this week hoping for work to be done.
If pastels are a little hard for you to clean up (as they were for me) but you find yourself drawn to them, opt for the slightly grayer ‘mud’ version – South of France Think dusty colors – green shutters against dark lavender and mint pale yellow houses. Rather than modern clean, bright geometric shapes, add dark wood and vintage rugs, and rather than introduce iridescence, choose versions of the same tones to keep the number of colors down.
We know some people want rainbow colors, but if so, this advice isn’t for you. Another point to note is that if the pink in the upper bathroom is green or yellow, it will fit perfectly in the room above as they are all in the same palette of pale dirty pastels.
Here the same yellow and green are placed on a gray wall. You may not want to go with gray walls, but the point is to show you how to add other non-pastel colors to the mix so that it doesn’t get too sweet.
Also pay attention to the revival of the avocado bath. I distinctly remember my mother giving me permission to renovate the downstairs bathroom in my grandmother’s house where we lived for many years. She triumphantly said she found a new color for the walls called Avocado. “Yes,” said my grandmother absent-mindedly. “And what exactly is that?”
We move on to the same yellow and green color palette, but this time moving from pastel to olive green to a much stronger shade of yellow. This exemplifies the old adage that there is no such thing as the wrong color being just the wrong shade. If you find it difficult to respond to color, try mentally moving the light-dark slide scale up and down. In some cases, it will still be no, but you may find a version you like. This is also good if you are decorating with someone and you have to consider their preferences. It is recommended to replace it with a shade of blue. If yellow doesn’t work for you, try substituting it with different pinks. And just by imagining this set of greens against everything from plaster to neon, you can see how much different shades can make a difference.
Finally, throw away the green and make it all yellow, which is also a dirty yellow. If gypsum pink is yellow, it looks like this. Back in the south of France, with its dusty yellow houses. This is the yellow I can trade. Maybe not a wall, but not a London wall, but because you always have to consider the setting when choosing a color. Additionally, the room requires black and white striped lamp bases and black curtain poles to create a four-poster effect.
It reminded me of the mantra from the 2018 Mad About the House book. This was posted as part of my top 10 interior design hacks of 2016. Something new, something old, something new something black and something gold. I stand by it.
Have you changed your mind about color lately, or have you noticed that some shades you like and some you don’t? I’ll go first – yes navy no sky yes olive no to sage.
