If you thought blue and green should never be seen together, think again.
The combination of blue and green is a timeless one, despite the much-maligned pair being sworn off one another in old wives’ tales.
This fresh, luxurious palette works incredibly well as long as you get one essential element correct: tone. Choosing a similar tone of both colours to tie them together will pave the way for a winning colour palette to work from.
How important is getting colour right when decorating?
“When it comes to creating a mood in ANY space, colour plays a powerful role,” says Meaghan McNamara, Director of design house Study of Colour. “For many home stylists, the colours you choose for your bed furnishings, your walls, your carpet, are a direct reflection of your personality.”
“Winter is the best time to spruce things up and lift the mood with a brighter palette,” Meaghan enthuses, suggesting the introduction of soft blues and greens into your bedroom palette to channel a meditative, serene environment.
“You can create a mood that you want, just by the colours you choose.”
