Last week I had a look at a colourful and vibrant bedroom at the House & Garden Festival at Olympia London. This week I’m going to show you a sitting room, which was just as colourful, but had a different style.
The designer Natalia Miyar designed a sitting room in a palette derived from nature and anchored by statement furniture and bold contemporary art. The pink wallpaper is a gorgeous backdrop for the contrasting golden details and the David Hockney painting.
The two chairs in neutral fabric make the whole composition look sophisticated and let the huge yellow ottoman stand out. The pink wallpaper is also very striking. The room would not have been the same at all without that rich and beautiful colour. When using bold and brave colours it’s important to get the balance right. Well mastered by Atelier Natalia Miyar, this room has a wow factor, and is comforting at the same time. Mixing pattern, colours and materials in a very clever way, even the woodwork colours work so well together.
Tips for choosing your colour palette – if you are fond of a piece of art (doesn’t have to be yours) look at the colours and adapt them into your home. Although, do not go crazy matching everything, random pieces here and there look better.
If you don’t have that desirable piece of art, why not buy a huge canvas and go wild…
