When accents of pink and orange are used in a mainly white room, the mood is warm, fresh and joyful. The grand architecture of this French chateau, with its ornate paneling, soaring ceilings and high shuttered windows, has been giving a young, comtemporary feel with low furniture and vivacious, feminine colour. Comfortable modern sofas and chairs are joined by lots of floor cushions; sitting on the floor in a room like this immediately makes it feel informal and relaxed. The windows are dressed in layers and stripes of various shades of pink, with gauzy voiles filtering the light coloured glass. The pattern is a modern take on printed lace – just right for this charming flirtatious mood.
“The use of colour here is gloriously tonal – taking pink from palest shell to shocking Schiaparelli, with accents of persimmon and mauve. Colour contrast is provided by the vast expanses of white paneled walls and the oversized white rug that lightens the effect of the wooden floor. Modern combinations of hot pink dahlias, spiky grasses and scented geranium leaves give a freshness and vitality to the room.”
