EXPRESS YOURSELF IN COLOUR

Any style as long as it’s yours

Every colour tells a story. Colours are personal expressions that affect us emotionally and psychologically. That’s why infusing your home with the right colours allows you to tell your personal story while creating a space that soothes your senses and enables your lifestyle. Below we go through some of the considerations when picking colours, while also showing you examples of how others have used colours to elicit their personality.

 

Read on for 5 things to be mindful of when choosing your colour expressions.

Context

Colours are highly dependable on their context. The way we perceive a colour depends on the interplay with other colours and shapes. Think about where your furniture is placed and what other forms, colours and light surround it.

 

How to pick the right material

Colour evolution

Our perception of colour can change based on different inputs and trends. That doesn’t mean that you have to worry about picking a wrong colour. You can take charge and evolve your expressions. Bring new colours together, add a colourful accessory, change the wall colour and create new, contemporary looks.

Your furniture

If your chosen design is already full of character, adding a bold colour should be done with care. A more neutral colour could instead let the design speak for itself, though that doesn’t mean you can’t emphasise bold designs with daring colours. In the same way, a design with classic lines can get an infusion of power with an interesting colour and material choice.

How to get the wow factor right

 

Material

Some colours and materials simply go together. Black leather, Grey felt, and the rich, brown walnut. The material is important as it affects the way the colour is projected. The shine of velvet and chenille fabrics lets the colours have a life of their own, while more classic fabric choices present a more subtle colour expression. In our stores, large material, fabric and leather samples let you discover the interplay of colour and material.

Our own limitations

It’s a hard truth, but sometimes we can get in our own way; falling in love with a colour only to then later realise that it was simply a phase or that it doesn’t fit the décor and lifestyle. That’s why we always encourage you to run your ideas by a professional interior designer to get their input on colour, material and styling.
