LESS IS MORE

Over-us­ing colour is a com­mon mis­take so rather than get­ting a fun or play­ful re­sult, it can end up look­ing in­tense and over­whelm­ing. ‘Imag­ine colour like sea­son­ing – the more in­tense the colour, the stronger the vis­ual sea­son­ing,’ says Mar­i­anne.

With more in­tense colours, you have to use them care­fully to cre­ate just the right im­pact.

You can do this with a fea­ture wall that draws the eye be­cause of its use of colour, tex­tures or pat­terns, or in bold floor-to-ceil­ing cur­tains that when open can be tucked away, but when drawn be­come a strong state­ment.
