EX­PER­I­MENT WITH COLOUR

South Waikato News - - Backyard Banter -

While white might be the ul­ti­mate space cre­ator, cer­tain colours and com­bi­na­tions can fool the eye and make in­te­ri­ors seem more spa­cious than they are. Pale blues and greens cre­ate a calm­ing at­mos­phere that si­mul­ta­ne­ously en­large and brighten a space. They also com­bine well with other colours. Sea-foam greens and soft tones of yel­low are equally ver­sa­tile. plums. Reds, greens and mid-tone blues can call too much at­ten­tion to the walls, mak­ing a room feel smaller. Ac­ces­sorise with blan­kets, art­work, rugs and fur­ni­ture in sim­i­lar tones but dif­fer­ent tex­tures, and in­clude pops of bright colour with cush­ions or lamps.
