Styled roomset: for Real Homes magazine
South American colour scheme
With all this doom and gloom around due to the credit crunch, I thought I would post some bright colour schemes to brighten things up.Â If you are bored of the neutral colours adorning the magazine pages then liven things up with hot South American tones .Â The image above was inspired from a trip to Cuba. I styled the shoot with photographer Lizzie Orme and then it was published in Real Homes magazine.
Paint: To create the look use colours confidently with strong green,Â bold blue and hot pink and team them with lighter colours such as soft lime and cool cream for furnishings and accessories.Â There are several paint suppliers you can use to acheive the look: TheÂ Serenity collection at Craig & Rose offers a good selection.Â Dulux paints have a Rich collection that offers vibrant colours perfect for this scheme.Â Their selection of ‘blue’ paints are especially stunning.
