THINK OUT­SIDE THE BLOCK

Country Homes & Interiors - - TREND SPECIAL -

Ex­plore dra­matic colour in new ways with framed, block-painted ar­eas to cre­ate a dy­namic space full of im­pres­sive mys­tery. Ob­serv­ing an archive pal­ette with a con­tem­po­rary take, we’re em­brac­ing a bold new vi­sion of colour in our homes. Ex­per­i­ment­ing with con­trast and scale, painted bound­aries be­tween light and dark high­light ar­chi­tec­tural fea­tures, cre­at­ing a deep and pow­er­ful sense of op­u­lence in any room, large or small. Ap­ply an in­tense her­itage shade within de­fined, clean lines, off­set with dusky neu­trals and del­i­cate pas­tels on up­hol­stery up­dates for a dis­tin­guished look that’s grace­fully moody.
