In modern interiors, function and form go stylishly hand in hand. The meaning and functionality of each interior element are elevated when there are only a few carefully selected items in the room. Minimalist surroundings mean that all eyes are on your favourite details, allowing those specific items to showcase your style and taste. Whether it’s a particular piece of art, a sculptural light fixture or a forward-thinking piece of furniture, crisp neutrals with contrasting bold accents will create the perfect backdrop for your most prized possessions.
It’s no secret that painting your walls white can create an open environment. A fresh coat of white paint can help illuminate a room and create a soothing backdrop for art and furnishings. The possibilities are endless; you can go minimal or use it as a base to inject pops of colour, whether they’re on the moodier scale or full of light.
For a contemporary, almost gallery-like ambience, rely on large neutral surfaces and layer them with minimalistic, bold coloured points of visual interest. Airy neutrals from F497 Paper, F487 Feather and Y487 Piazza pick up cool tones of grey while retaining enough warmth to steer your room away from appearing cold. These luxurious off-white neutral shades transform a dull room into a serene environment and are a perfect blend of sophistication and tranquillity, brightening dark spaces and making even the smallest of rooms feel spacious. Add depth and contrast with K487 Calcite or X499 Granite for a polished finish. Go the extra mile and introduce contemporary pops of colour to your palette with a statement accent colour or two, such as the powerful red tones of M323 Hearts or sunny yellow hues of S302 Grapefruit. Don’t be afraid to introduce patterns or create strong lines using these colours.
