FRESH AQUA ACCENTS
Bright, sunny and relaxing, it’s no wonder these colours are so popular.
You don’t need to live near the coast to use sea greens and blues to freshen-up your interior.
Aqua tones are perfect to zhoosh up a neutral base palette. They work so well with grey, which has become many people’s neutral of choice. The aqua accessories on
Kobi’s deck look great alongside the grey beanbag and greying timber. 2 A variety of plain and patterned aqua coloured accessories feature in this home. Choosing similar colour tones allows you to introduce lots of different patterns and still create a cohesive look. Imagine what the house would look like without the many patterned soft furnishings and rugs. They give an otherwise minimalist space personality and character. 3
Green and blue glassware also looks lovely with these aqua tones. Its transparency adds another visual dimension and texture. 4
For a coordinated look throughout your house, use the same tones in every room. You’ll see how beautifully it works here in Kobi and Georgia’s home. Even the towels and plant pot in the bathroom continue the theme.
