What to do when you can't commit to colour

When you can't commit to colour

It happens all the time. You find a beautiful raspberry sofa that you love but you end up purchasing the beige one, just to be on the safe side.

Here are a few ways to add interest to a beige colour scheme

1)  Tone: lighter & darker hues will add interest, and dimension. Don't buy all your furniture in same the colour. Try a darker sofa & lighter chairs for starters.

2) Texture: a sea grass rug, linen curtains, leather ottoman & shell chandelier. 

3) Architectural Detail:  grass cloth wallpaper, wainscoting, trim, casing and don't forget the ceiling 

4) Light: make sure you have changed your light bulbs to one pink and one frosted, it will cast the most beautiful light.

5) Accessories:  pillows, cozy throw or a bouquet of flowers is a noncommittal way to introduce a splash of colour that will bring your space to life.

Have fun decorating,
