Inspiration & Trends: Embracing Colours

2nd February 2024

Welcome back to the Edward Thomas Interiors social series, where we delve into the art of making your house, your home. In this edition, we’re exploring the world of colour and offering a variety of ideas to transform your living spaces.


Let’s start with the timeless elegance of monochrome. This colour scheme, centred around blacks, whites, and greys creates a sense of sophistication. A monochrome living room, for instance, can be adorned with black and white furnishings and décor, making for a striking, high-contrast ambiance.


A simple black and white palette not your style? Then why not try pastel colours, such as soft pinks, baby blues, and pale yellows, to bring a touch of whimsy to any room. Consider using pastels in a living room to create a gentle and calming environment to unwind in. Combine these shades with white for a clean and airy feel or a maximalist print to make a statement.

Or, why not utilise earthy neutrals like beige, taupe, and warm greys to provide a soothing and versatile backdrop. These colours are perfect for creating a cozy and professional study. Add texture with wooden furniture and woven textiles to complete that natural aesthetic.

Don’t be afraid to mix and match to create unique colour schemes. For example, combine yellow furnishings with deep red borders and grey furniture to make a dreamlike child’s room. Experimentation can lead to surprising and delightful results.

Remember, the key to a successful colour scheme lies in trial and error. Consider your personal preferences, the function of the room, and the natural light it receives. And don’t forget to test paint samples before committing to a colour!
