Pinch, punch, the first of the month and I’m working on a design piece for the Guardian with interior designer Kia who isn’t afraid of using dramatic colour – she’s done a black hallway for one client. She came over to my place on Friday, and flicking through her portfolio, I stopped at this inky navy room that she made over for one of her London clients. Love it!
Last summer everyone was blogging about Zooey Deschanel’s deep blue studio – look how great the mustard-ochre-yellow shade looks in her pictures (photos taken from Apartment Therapy) below. No doubt her skirt was deliberately picked to bring out the colours, but the yellow piano is very cool. I’m not sure about that lamp being red though; however, if it was mustard then it would maybe have ended up looking a little too contrived.
I’m not too keen on the stripes – I’m pretty sure if you’re going to go that bold with colour, you do it all the way, but I still love the fact that something so dark still looks classic…
This month’s World of Interiors features Rodman Primack’s and Rudy Weissenberg’s apartment – with indigo walls, a dove grey Chesterfield and cushions in different shades of greys and olives that work really well together (the WoI doesn’t share its pictures online so you’ll just have to go buy a copy)
