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.
