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.
