Trend: Colour blocking at home

On August 15th, 2011 by .

A firm trend on the runways for the past year is colour blocking; a trend which I would love to also see being experimented with in interior styling. The key to success with this style? Keep the combination to 3 or 4 bold, pure colours paired with a neutral for some grounding. The results are an explosion of vibrancy! I like that this look can be adapted to just a corner study if you wanted or a whole living area if you were really brave! It’s a minimal look that also lends itself to the introduction of prints and other personal pieces. A few images below for inspiration…

    Love the colours! Colour blocking for interiors is definitely a great way to lead the eye through a space. You can’t help but want to check out that bright pink thing showing through that doorway! I think it adds a really modern feel as well, in the way that there is a focus on one colour in an area (in large blocks) – very bold and graphic!nCheers for theu00a0inspiring postnxLiivi
