It’s been a little while now since we finished our home office which is still the only room in our house to be anywhere near complete. I worked home from on Tuesday this week and set up camp in this little but inspiring room with my tea, laptop, music and candles and got so much done because it makes me happy, it’s my creative space and it’s full of little splashes of colour that offset our darkest grey walls.
A transformation from start to finish, we initially wondered whether painting such a small space dark grey was a wise idea but we’ve teamed it up with white furniture and so many splashes of vibrant accessories that it doesn’t feel dark at all and instead is a cosy space in winter and a cool, refreshing room in summer with the windows and plantation shutters flung open.
I recently attended a colour psychology masterclass, learning how your personality influences what interiors style you opt for and being a bubbly, chatty person I definitely need my home to reflect that with a variety of textures, themes and colours. It’s so easy to achieve and doesn’t have to be daunting if you look at the smaller accessories such as lighting, wall art, vases and so on that can be easily switched out to achieve an entirely new look.
One of the key messages that came out of the psychology masterclass was to be authentic and tell your own story and there’s no doubt that colour helps me to do just that.
Are you a colour lover or do you prefer a cleaner style? Isn’t it great that we all love something different!
