Black Curtains set the stage for this classic yet fun colour pallet.
The red, black, grey colour pallet has to be one of my favourites. A strong statement that creates a modern clean feel to your room. A very popular colour scheme for the stylish savvy male decorator and equally as popular for the strong willed, clean and minimalist style woman.
A great pallet for singles apartments, teenage retreats, or family homes. Super easy to create and a real winner in our eyes.
Start your project with a neutral coloured wall.
- Black Curtains add to the drama and you can use either sheers for a softer look or the heavier coated blockout eyelet curtain type. You can find a heap of ideas and styles of black curtains here.
- For all the main room items such as cabinets, bed heads, desks and sofas, select a combination of lighter colours and darker coloured pieces. Preferably either black or very dark brown and light timbers, or white or grey toned beiges for soft furnishing pieces.
- Now for the fun bit! Add a few accent pieces to the room - a red cushion, a red throw or some interesting collectors piece in vibrant red. Try to keep all the reds in a similar toning. The red will really pop out, so don't go over board, and try to find a few really interesting pieces. If you have an interesting piece, you can spray paint it with a tin of high gloss fire engine red.
