Colour on white

Generally the following is true:
There's nothing fresher than splashes of bright colour on white
One can have a lot of fun with artwork when using a neutral palette
There's a lot more versatility when selecting art, soft furnishings and materials for a neutral scheme
The final result is a cool and modern look which works well with both new and older homes

Dark cabinetry works beautifully with white walls

Fun coloured pendants are a fun way to introduce bright colour
(and are a beautiful focal point too)
The pink door adds cheerfulness and works well with the dark feature wall 

The successful colour on white look is achieved below

Love this home

Monday inspiration / First project for 2014

I'm working on my first project for 2014 and that includes selecting interior colour, 
materials and finishes for a brand new home in Sydney 
as well as exterior colours, materials and finishes.
Needless to say that I've been buried in colour charts, laminex/formica samples
caesar stone, colorbond, bricks, etc., for about a week...
This home below is up on my board at the moment
It has beautiful features and stunning elements.
I find the recycled hardwood beams + glass + splash of colour combo
simply stunning
Impossible to look past it.

 I love that this home has been designed for both grown-ups and kids

 It's elegant and contemporary

But warm and fun too
(Isn't this kids' door heaps of fun?)

 Top marks for this gorgeous kids corner/bed and stunning floorboards throughout 

 Amazing reflections + glass and beams side by side = Love!

Beautiful shelves in the study with blue & green colour boxes, such fun!
