Colourful Rooms

FROM THE RIGHT BANK | Creating a global modern home inspired by travels around the world.

As much as I love my neutrals, there's nothing like a blast of colour in a room to really make it come alive.   And, I don't mean just throwing a few colourful pillows on the sofa or putting up a bold piece of art in a beige or gray room, I mean colour like you mean it... in commitment pieces!

See what colour can do to impart drama, infuse energy, create interest and establish a sense of mystery in these rooms,  and then see how it stacks up to plain old neutrals.

Ok, so pink silk walls and high gloss navy kitchen cabinets may not be for the faint of heart, 
but it's what makes designer's like Kelly Wearstler and Miles Redd legendary artists.

Consider all the many ways that colour can make any room feel really special, and go for it.  
Decorating your home should be fun, not scary, and certainly not something that gives you angst when it comes to choosing the right colour.   

Start with at least one new colour on a piece of furniture
 (a painted cabinet or an upholstered chair) and go from there.
You may just find it lifts your spirits when you walk into the room and makes you smile.  
Don't be afraid to colour your world!
