How we used bold, bright colours to transform our grey & white space.
Colour me happy!
When we were looking for wall art and soft furnishings for our new extension, we wanted something bold and colourful that would make a statement in a large kitchen/dining/living area with white walls. This was particularly important after choosing a grey corner sofa, armchairs and dining chairs.
Scatter your colour with cushions.
We wanted something bright to contrast the grey furniture and settled on a yellow colour scheme for our cushions. We chose some beautiful knitted Beth Jordan cushions from Homesense. The grey, piped edge to the cushions and stitched label were lovely touches.
We also chose a pair of Scion Mini Mr Fox Cushions, Yellow/Grey from John Lewis (£25) for the corner sofa, to complement the Beth Jordan ones.
Bold and beautiful wall art.
We weren’t sure what we were looking for when it came to finding framed prints. We just wanted something that ‘popped’ off the wall and was a contrast to the brilliant white emulsion.
Richard has to take the credit for our final choice. He spotted these bright, bold abstract landscapes by Jacky Al-Samarraie in John Lewis and I knew he was on to a winner.
Their simple composition and use of bold blocks of colour makes these prints perfect for bringing a sense of rural charm and a contemporary feel to a room. They are presented in high quality black wooden box frames with double thickness mounts that perfectly complement the picture within.
We love Jacky Al-Samarraie’s uncomplicated images with their bright blocks of colour. They are bold and eye-catching, especially in contrast to our white walls.
Just a spoonful of colour turns a grey theme around!
Over to you.
We are delighted with our beautiful Jacky Al-Samarraie framed prints and bright cushions.
