Colour Layering

Chatting to a fellow interior designer last week she was asked to write an article about changing interiors with the seasons. Being a serial "cushionaholic" - self confessed, we chatted about the simplest and most cost effective ways to make interiors pop for the different seasons... AND you guessed it cushions were top of the list followed by flowers and regrouping of objects and also layering for the colder seasons. I have found some great examples of layering courtesy of BHG magazine and what a difference a cushion and throw can make to a room, the before and afters are very telling. So give it a go and make some changes for us in Australia, Spring is looming (Can't come quickly enough) so it's a great time to start and plan some changes.

What an amazing difference a bit of layering with cushions, art, rugs, throw and flowers - all accessories. I love it! How simple is that?
Then this simple detailing of a rug and cushion, taking this corner from bland to beautiful -  the addition of the throw and flowers makes it pop even more.

 Then we got talking about grey which is everywhere right now in homes and fashion. It can be subtley beautiful and is of varying shades but needs colour to make it work. I love this simple blue/grey distressed cupboard arrangement how simple and stunning!  Enjoy
