Colour Burst: Pale and inky

For the first Colour Burst feature I was going to post an image full of colour but after this post I thought I would be polite and tone it down a touch.


Paint chip colours (L-R): Porters Paints Frieda, Birthday Candle, Pretty in Pink and Sand

This colour scheme might look beautiful in a bedroom. Here's how I would work with it:

An antique bed, pale linens, pink walls painted in Birthday Candle and a little pop of colour such as a bedroom chair or photo frames painted in Frieda.

Paint chip colours (L-R): Porters Paints Galactic, Alley Cat, Lavender, Oriental Lily


This colour scheme might look nice in a small room such as a reading room to make it extra cozy, dark and moody. Here's how I would work with it:

Walls painted in Galactic, a lamp painted Alley Cat, cushions in Lavender and furniture in Oriental Lily to contrast against the walls.

If you had these colours to work with, how might you use them?
