I truly believe in the notion that colour equals happiness. Now some of you who are devotees of the monochromatic approach in interior design might disagree with me here, but hey, this is a place to go crazy and berserk when it comes to homes. So today's room that caught my eye is a perfect example of a real colour explosion. Here are the three reasons that made my jaw drop:
- Eclectic colour mix: I know it's not for everyone, but this eclectic colour mix just made my eye go all over this room. The funky art, the two bright Stool 60 examples by Alvar Aalto, the multi-coloured and multi-patterned home textiles - all comes together into a happy room.
- Dark walls: In order to make all the strong colours pop, the owner has decided to go dark with the walls. An excellent backdrop for all the brights!
- Bright yellow sofa: The yellow sofa serves as a sort of visual anchor in this room. It draws the eye and sets the tone for all the other colours and patterns.
