COLOUR CODE

Ap­ply bold and brave tones to or­ches­trate all the right moods – from the high notes of pas­sion­ate red in the kitchen to sooth­ing trop­i­cal blue in the bath­room.

Con­sider the emo­tions you most con­nect with and plan colour ac­cord­ingly and where it counts. High-use ar­eas such as kitchens and bath­rooms cue the call for bold moves to be made. With cabi­netry, tiling and fea­ture walls tak­ing cen­tre stage, tem­per the vol­ume with neu­tral floor­ing and ap­pli­ances.

En­er­getic red and zesty or­ange stim­u­late both the eye and ap­petite, mak­ing white walls and blonde floors the per­fect com­ple­ment in the kitchen. Ditto the bath­room where black and white create the ideal back­drop for colour to steal the show.

Pas­sion project

It may be a state­ment colour, but red is also a clas­sic and en­dur­ing choice. In­deli­bly linked to food, it’s known to in­vig­o­rate the ap­petite and cre­ativ­ity. With nu­mer­ous shades to choose from, take time to find the one you most love, then com­mit with pas­sion.
