Its important to take colours seriously when styling a space. When discussing the use of colour, most people want to remain safe in this ‘neutral territory’ of brown, black, white, and grey. Understandable indeed.
However, having a pop of colour can actually be quite grounding to a space as well as awaken it – creating a focal point in the room – or highlighting a feature, like the height of the room itself, of an artistic architectural detail such as original crown molding, or a beautiful door or window.
