Colour and the importance of…

Following on from my recent post about meeting Sophie Robinson, the Queen of Colour, I wanted to write more about this ridiculously important subject. Sophie believes that painting a room white is actually an ‘interior design crime’.

I am not sure I can go along with this, much as I would be well qualified to, as the owner of an aubergine kitchen (above), a dark grey bedroom, a bronze TV room (below) and a plum dressing room.

Seriously though, it cannot be denied that all white homes are stunning. There is something completely magical about walking into a house where all the walls and floors are painted a perfect dazzling white. Especially when the owners do not have children, dogs, cats or, errr, visitors. What transforms these magical monochrome palaces into real, loveable homes is, of course, pops of colour.
