{Home Tour: Colour Confident}

At first peek this delightful little home tour from Apartment Therapy might not seem all that colourful. Then, on the second look, you start to see pops of colours - blues, yellows, oranges, greens...they just keep on appearing. And as they do, the space gets all the more appealing. Don't you just love the confidence the owners have taken by painting their bedroom in that chic grey hue (1)? They've lightened the space with an original artwork, the first hit of primary colours in this space. Spotted next are the poppy yellow pillowcases (my fave!) and the feminine red flower prints, which help to soften the masculine colours that dominate the room. The kitchen (2) is just as darling as the bedroom, with warm wooden surfaces, bright serveware and open shelving (another fave). Finally, the living room rounds things off with it's soft sage green walls, nude-coloured throws and accents in lime green and burnt orange. Top marks!

  1. Very cool little abode and cute pops of colour....I think they have done really well combining them all.
    They could even afford another layer of colour if they could be so daring......

  3. I love how the decor is understated and the home looks lived in. Love the pops of colour. It's funny because my post today was about a pop of colour in a space:-).

  12. Ooo...I love that gray wall color in the bedroom and the flowers beside the bed. I'm not crazy about the cover on the couch, though. If it were more tailored looking (and not so loosey-goosey), I'd be on board.

  15. Thanks, gang!

    Molly - you crack me up; keep on rocking that stray 'u', looks like it's working wonders!

    Tommy - the stripes on the covers redeem it slightly for me, but I probs would have kept the Karlstad bare had this been my space.
