THE DECORAT ION

COLOUR BLOCK­ING

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Content -

There’s a play­ful spirit in the air in the world of dec­o­rat­ing, which Swedish paint brand Al­cro (al­cro.se) has per­fectly cap­tured with this scheme. It is not only in­cred­i­bly bright (all of the colours used are from the com­pany’s ‘Mi­ami Déco’ col­lec­tion), but also clever, as the art­ful com­po­si­tion plays with the di­men­sions of the room, tak­ing colour block­ing to the next level. Look at the way the ceil­ing has been visu­ally height­ened us­ing ex­tended seg­ments of pale blue and yel­low paint (‘South Beach’ and ‘Florida’ re­spec­tively), and how the per­fectly crisp sec­tions of colour all line up to­wards the bot­tom of the wall to cre­ate a con­tem­po­rary take on a dado rail. £20.95 for one litre, Paint & Paper Ltd (paint-paper.co.uk).
