Play with Pops of Colour
It's no surprise that neutrals and muted colours are all the rage — a well-curated neutral palette is timeless. However, introducing a splash of colour into your living space is a great way to add some joy and personality to your home. Although decorating with colour might seem intimidating at first, you can find hues that not only enhance your home but also complement your lifestyle and bring out your personality. Buckle down, take a deep breath, and open your mind – and eyes – to the beautiful possibilities of colour.

Colour your kitchenYour kitchen is the heart of your home, and adding colour is the perfect way to bring an extra element of warmth. Pedersen + Lennard has created some fun pieces to accomplish this. Their Breadbin, a birch ply structure with a mild steel lid that doubles as a recipe book stand, will not only add a lifetime of use but also bring joy to this special space.
