Over the years, it's taken me a while to settle into finding my own interior style. If you had asked me a year ago what my style was, I probably would've said that I didn't really have one. But if you asked me now, I would say that I like a mixture of old and new. My colour pallet tends to stay fairly neutral and I used accessories such as cushions, picture frame and candles to add some colour.
I have to say, I'm not one to push my boundaries with interior design. I shy away from using bold colours, not because I don't like them, but because I get worried that the vision I have won't be achieved. I do however, LOVE colours. I'm drawn to colours and patters- they make me happy! So I've been having a little look around the old world wide web to get some inspiration.
*Swoon* I am a big fan of Caitlin Wilson designs and textiles. This for me is the perfect mix of neutrals and pops of colour. The combination of the Bright pink, navy stripe and gold accents works like a charm. Can I see myself going out and buying a bright pink sofa? Erm, no. But, do I love it? Hell yeah!!
Another example of Caitlin Wilson designs. This room again has neutral walls and a whole host of colours here, there and everywhere. Different colours, patterns and textures all mixed together to make a feast for the eyes. It all works amazingly well together and creates a bright and fun workspace.
Salmon and Green? If you had told me that was a colour scheme I would have turned my nose up! However, I love this!! It gives such a fresh, feminine and summery look. The splash of animal print is also a winner for me.
The white furniture against this Coral wall is so effective. It also hosts a gallery wall that has contrasting colours which really makes it pop. I very much doubt that 'Mr A' would appreciate this.....Maybe it's one to consider for my craft room??
I don't know about you but this really makes me want to pop down to B&Q and buy lots of paint! ha. I'm going to make a real effort to inject some cloud into my home and be a little more brave.
Are you daring with colour?? Tag me in your interior pictures on Instagram @bellacoco_ so I can have a nosey!
