Winter Colour Palette

In our day job as a Colour Consultants we think about colour all day long and sometimes long into the night...    Creating a colour palette for a home is an adventure, exploring different shades and hues that will work together is often a challenge.  After considering the needs of the homeowners and their lifestyle we also have to think about the precious things within their home that they have collected which tell their story.  But mostly we need to think about how they want to FEEL within their space.  Whether it be a relaxing or inspired space getting it right is crucial.  Below is an colour palette pulled from the picture that inspired it.  Do you have an image that you love that could inspire colours for your interior?  And how would you use them?  Perhaps the white for walls, grey for furniture, red/orange as an accent (cushions) and dark brown/grey for flooring?

Colours of Autumn Inside + Out

The colours of Autumn are warm and toasty ... I've always loved red regardless of the season. The wallpaper below is from Resene's Wall Paper Library

It's possible to wait all day for the sun to come out ... and it doesn't! I walked along a country road in Berry yesterday in glorious sun along with man and dog under the blue sky and came across the colours of Autumn. So today the camera has waited at the front door ... and waited and waited. Enough is enough! Off I went and who needs the sun? I was happy to capture these snaps

Splashes of Red

Reds are warm, passionate, sexy. It is a powerful colour - it stimulates and raises the pulse rate.

Reds are strong, powerful and simple.
