HOW TO PLAY WITH COLOUR

From lush green to blush pink, adding a new shade can transform a room. Here, Jordan Cluroe and Russell Whitehead of interior design studio 2LG share their top buys and expert tips to make colour work in your home

GO GREEN

The ‘greening’ trend for interiors looks set to keep growing – and autumn is the perfect time to bring a little foliage inside, whether it’s in the form of leafy plants or an eye-catching print. 2LG Studio have picked out these lush accessories as a quick way to embrace the look.

Main image: “If you are looking for a simple way to update your space, plants add instant impact, and these fauxs are great if you aren’t particularly green-fingered but want to go green.”

Inset: “This deep forest green will always be a classic in both modern and contemporary spaces, and the botanical prints add a layer of nature to your room.”

STAY NEUTRAL

Neutral shades of cream and grey with natural materials such as wood make for a serene, soothing scheme that will never date. Add soft accessories like cushions and throws for a cosier feel when the cold kicks in. Here are Studio 2LG’s favourite neutral pieces to invest in from the autumn/winter collection.

Main image: “This wooden bench is so versatile, working in a hallway, at a dining table or at the foot of a bed. A must-have item for any home, whether it is a period property or modern.”

Inset: “This geometric quilt adds a contemporary touch to your bedroom. It’s a star item.”

THINK PINK

Pink is a big trend, on the catwalks and in the home. If you haven’t embraced it yet, try these tips for bringing the colour into your interiors in a way that won’t overwhelm your scheme.

Main image: “Texture brings atmosphere to an interior that elevates the experience of living in a room. If you feel at home with grey tones, change it up by adding layers of texture and soft shades of lilacs and pinks in the accessories.”

Inset: “This rich blush pink is the ‘go-to’ colour for interiors right now, adding warmth and elegance to your home. Hand blown glass adds a delicate touch of craft connecting you to the skilled maker.”
