Interior Inspiration: Calling all Colours
This summer, we’re inspired by all things colour! Our favorite trending colours are brilliant orange, accent yellow, soft mint, jade green, sea-cap blue, champagne gold and pastel purple. Incorporating colour into your home décor may not always be easy, so we’ve put together a spread of seven ways that our favorite interior designers have used these colours in their designs. Plus, you can complete the look with gorgeous new floors from Flooring Canada!
Brilliant Orange: Reading Nook
This clean and bright orange wall makes a statement in this reading nook, which features a contrasting modern white bookshelf and a white square ottoman. The orange pulls out the brilliant tones in book spines and décor from the bookshelf while also grounding the space in warm tones that match the shiny dark hardwood.
Accent Yellow: Kitchen
Let’s face it, yellow is the sunniest of summer hues and can quickly liven up a space just like it does here with illuminating yellow accent barstools, a bright yellow kettle, and decorative flowers in this radiantly colourful kitchen. The yellow tones balance out the whiteness of the space, and the medium hardwood-look floors and blue cabinets help to give the room a grounding point.
Soft Mint: Bedroom
Soft mint gives this bedroom a refreshing aesthetic and revitalizes a cozy space with a jolt of bright colour that makes one reminisce on their childhood days chasing ice cream trucks. Plus, the plush grey carpet doesn’t hurt to tie all the soft pastels together.
Jade Green: Living Room
Jade green makes a bold statement in this contemporary modern living room, pulling out a rich jewel green in both the armchairs and the artwork lining the walls. Set upon a contemporary layered rug, the dark chairs beautifully complement the light white oak of the floors.
Sea-Cap Blue: Bathroom
In a dreamy ocean-hued escape, this blue pinstriped bathroom wallpaper gives way to beach days ahead, with a decorative sunbather soap dish and fun lantern. Contemporary meets Old World with a stunning crystal chandelier hanging above a clean, white porcelain sink and dark floorboards.
Champagne Gold: Office
Bright champagne gold hardware adds some pizazz to an otherwise ordinary office space with a polished gold desk lamp, glossy gold décor, and chair legs that shine in natural light. Metal hardware easily stands out against a contemporary light wood floor.
Pastel Purple: Bathroom
Bathrooms can be the perfect spaces to let in natural light with airy windows and custom skylights. The design of this bathroom capitalizes on this bright trend with a tranquil splash of purple pastel via the lavender cabinets and delicate marble-veined flooring.
