When spring hits London, I get a little obsessive about colour.
And not just soft, washed out, half-arsed colour.

I mean bold, exciting, punch-you-in-the-guts-colour.

If winter London is slate grey, dove grey, inky blue mizzle, then London spring is sage green (think Pantone 624),  mid pink and bright yellow.

Without doubt, the single most transformative thing you can do to your interior is to add colour [the second most transformative thing is lighting].

It can be expensive to design a fully bespoke lighting scheme.

It costs almost nothing to add colour using paint. Just a sharp intake of breath and some expert advice [from years of experience, my clients always need a little hand holding when adding big colour].

As well as paint you can also add colour using wallpaper, rugs, upholstery, window treatments such as roman blinds or felt curtains, cushions, artwork and ceramics.

When you add exciting colours to your interior and you immediately add emotion.
A flash of bright yellow on upholstery, a pink floor, sage green chairs, it just takes a little imagination and some rule breaking.

My new shocking pink shirt is inspiration for a bedroom we are currently designing. The images here are fantastic colour inspiration too.
