If you are the type of person that wants to walk into a room and feel uplifted and alive then this is the palette for you. You’ll favour bright and light spaces. Your ideal room would be a garden room or conservatory, bathed in natural twinkling sunlight. To establish this uplifting mood, none of our colours in this palette are heavy or dense or harsh. Instead, favour pretty pastels, sherbet brights and warm light neutrals. The patterns that go with this vibe are also light and playful, so think busy polka dots, dainty hand drawn illustrations and jolly stripes, or ginghams to add to your scheme. Busy prints help to add an optomistic energy to the space, which overall feels modern, youthful and happy.
To some people less is more and stripped back and understated interiors have an elegance all of their own. If you favour classic interiors that appear calm and elegant, you’ll be drawn to the sense of symmetry and order. The calming colour palette is cool and mid-tone, which is the least taxing on the eye. This makes this palette relaxing to look at, as there are no jarring contrasts. You’ll want to steer away from too much busy pattern and instead the focus is on the textures, which must be of the best quality. Think of the most sumptuous cotton velvets, French linens and cashmere set against faded woods and honed stone. Where there is a lack of pattern and contrasting colours, the emphasis is on the quality of texture. When a little pattern or artwork is introduced it will be soft and flowing like watercolours or painterly abstract art. The whole feel is very soft, so antique furniture with some gentle patina is favoured to hard-edged modern designs.
