2 Tuesday [Edition datE] April 18 2017 30 Latest Christchurch news at www. .kiwi HOME PROFESSIONALS SELWYN TIMES Fashion colours in home furnishings There is plenty of colour choice for home interiors however, once chosen stick to your theme. For a comfortable feel, earthy natural colours and textures in sepia tones of clays and soft sheepskin beiges complimented by muted pastels are ideal. Alternatively, contrast ethereal greys with yellows, cobalt, soft blues, violet, purple or pastels like peachy pink, rose, or mint. Earthy brown-based taupes, greens and greys offer a composed effect. Layer these as a backdrop for furniture pieces, cushions, runners and artwork that incorporate, soft blue greens, teals, magenta or touches of gold. Soft aqua walls trimmed with darker shades will also set-off contemporary furniture. A traditional atmosphere will come from regimental and uniform colours like black, navy, tan and deep greens. Lift these with brighter colours. Black and white combinations are also still in vogue. Try contrasting white with dark greys or deep blues, rather than black. They will attract the eye and make a statement. Neutral colour schemes are enhanced with a painted or wallpaper feature wall. It will not dominate and will provide a degree of separation in open plan areas. Choose the wallpaper then the paint for the other walls, door trim, skirtings and accessories, drawing the colours out of the wallpaper or blending with it. For a décor that reflects confidence and vibrancy, choose more dramatic colours like greens, bluer greens, yellows, pinks, oranges, mandarin red and violet, individually or together. These may be within wallpaper on a feature wall or one-off pieces such as a patchwork chair, paisley cushions, throws, vases, or wall hangings. Colour of the year is purple for fashion wear and home interiors. It signifies strength and stability while softer violet is modern and sentimental. Both work in the rooms we play in and those we relax in. Contrast ethereal greys with colours such as soft blues. Earthy natural tones create a comfortable feel. Violet is modern and sentimental. More dramatic colours can be introduced in one-off pieces. COLOUR YOUR WORLD Create contemporary and sophisticated elegance with fabric. See our selection today.
