Colourful furnishings can be great fun and a great source of inspiration and energy. Just as wearing a red dress can make us feel energised and alive, or a green shirt can make us feel calm and balanced; colour in the home can impact how you and your family feel. Whether you’re looking for a specific colour or a rainbow of colours – Nick Scali could be the place you find your pot of gold.
Red is the colour of rubies, roses and romance, but in strong doses you could literally be seeing red. While there may be 50 shades of grey, there are many more shades of red and it would seem than no other colour with such a wide range of hues can also bring out such a wide spectrum of emotions.
It’s a colour that conjures up sparkling gemstones, the Emerald city in the ‘Wizard of Oz’, lush green leaves and Kermit the frog’s famous song. And now green, according to the Pantone Colour Institute, well Emerald Green, is the colour of the year.
It’s the colour of farm fresh eggs, fluffy chicks, Spring daisies and 70’s-style kaftans – but is it a colour you could actually live with in your home?
Just as wearing a red dress can make your feel energized or popping on a green shirt can make you feel surprisingly calm, the use of colour in the home can have an amazing impact on how you and your loved ones feel. If you’re looking to spice up your home with colour, just remember it needn’t mean months of shopping and searching – simply select colours that you love and the rest will flow from there.
