be bold!

In case you're torn between going big or toning it down, check out this lesson in the AWESOME POWER of colour that I came across on The Lennoxx.

Here's a room designed by Tobi Fairley for the cover of House Beautiful. This is the edited photo.

Amazing blue on the walls.

Here is the unedited photo. What a different mood and feel!

Edited bedroom.

And unedited. Still glamorous but without the blue, it's quite different, isn't it? Check out the bed side lamps! The pink flowers in the edited picture make such a difference! No wonder Tommy Smythe says in the latest issue of In Style that fresh flowers in his space are non negotiable.

I'm not saying one is better than the other, I'm just saying that the blue one is... better. But the other is still great! But come on! Go for it- be bold and pick colour!
