Home & Decor (Malaysia) - - COLOUR OF THE MONTH - ALAN KUEH DE­SIGN CON­SUL­TANT, AK+

“There’s an in­creas­ing trend in the use of earth tones for home in­te­ri­ors, partly be­cause of the pop­u­lar­ity of min­i­mal­ist brands like Muji. While it’s not hard to see the ap­peal of this look, it is im­por­tant to keep in mind that per­son­al­i­sa­tion is still key when it comes to good in­te­rior dec­o­rat­ing. We need to in­ject our own char­ac­ter, with de­sign that is adap­tive to our habits and way of life. This en­sures a more last­ing, time­less ap­proach, when in­cor­po­rat­ing such sooth­ing tones into our homes. A good ap­proach would be to fo­cus on us­ing a larger va­ri­ety of ma­te­ri­als and tex­tures to make up for the lack of con­trast in the colours.”
