When handed a grey colour palette you have two options………. add more grey ( nah, not my style), Or push the boundaries into colour. And not just any colour…….the perfectly stunning mustard spectrum
As an interior stylist I’m finding I’m evermore surrounded by grey. But in my eyes, for the beauty of grey, you need to add something, whether it’s texture, or colour, you can’t just use different grey tones, or the beauty of the grey is lost and there is no warmth.
So when given the brief on this London apartment……… to create a living space that didn’t look like the “TV end “ of the room, I saw the grey and jumped at the chance.
The Details: An open concept living space incorporating the kitchen , a dining space with concrete top table already purchased by the client and a bare living space with a grey linen chesterfield sofa, grey pencil pleat curtains, a shabby chic table with TV on, and an ombré rug transitioning through grey to the most beautiful Ochre.
My client asked “Do you think it’s too yellow?” my response…….”How far can I go?”
To create a built in media unit that would draw in the concrete table’s leg colour – a subtle match creating balance in the alcove.
To draw out the mustard tones of the rug without making it match matchy adding two Mustard armchairs centrally to the room creating a living “zone”
Adding velvet cushions for texture in navy and ochre hues, and throws in the colour range in softest alpaca. A faux alligator tray was added to the footstool for beverages.
