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?

  1. I just stumbled across your blog... you fashion-driven take on interior design is totally inspiring! This inky blue is lovely, and I could see it working as the perfect way to balance all those pretty petal pinks.
