A word from Kim herself…
As discussed in my last edition we were going to explore the Neutral palette. Neutral palettes are not just cream but can also be grey, silver, beige and white.
I am often asked how do I make my cream walls look less boring. It’s what you put with that neutral palette that makes it turn from a boring room to a spectacular space. I love neutral palettes because it gives you huge flexibility. Rooms are about layers.
So if you have a neutral colour on the walls you can start layering colours. What do I mean by this? Take 3 of your favourite colours and remember that depending on what cream you have whether it is warm or cool. You need in some respect to stay with cool colours or warm.
Now depending on the light factor for that room you can choose those three colours in varying shades. Go to a paint shop and choose your three favourite colours from the paint chips and use these as your guide.
REMEMBER: If your room is dark go for light shades of your favourite colour and if you have lots of light choose the darker shades.
Now walk around your home and gather the things that are that colour and start arranging them in that room. By adding these three colours in different shades you will create a layering effect and give the room a harmonious effect.
Neutral palettes are great for room flexibility and allow you to change your colour scheme around whenever you feel the need for a change. So be brave and have fun. Decorating is about having fun!
In next month’s issue if you have a decorating dilemma please email the editor and I will answer any questions you may have.
