Cool colour?

December 7, 2011

Doing the rounds of Spring/Summer press shows, you can’t help but notice the repetition in trends in interiors. So I’ll state the blindingly obvious – colour is cool. Again. More importantly, doing your own thing with colour is cool – I’ve always admired those who go with gut feeling and use colours that make them happy. I always err on the side of safety – maybe there’s some Scandinavian in me – but strangely, it’s extreme schemes that seem to inspire me. In January’s 25BH (just out!) there’s one particular home, owned by Saxon and Gordon, that shouts it out, loud and proud. Primaries everywhere, from furniture to furnishings to accessories – why does it work so well? According to Saxon, they’re “drawn to objects that add a bit of soul to our home.” Well, it works for me.
And talking of which, we here at 25BH would like to know what works for you, so if you have 5 mins to spare, why not do our online survey and tell us what you think of the mag and help us to get it looking even better. You can win a prize in the process!


Colour, colour, everywhere...
