When thinking up a cohesive colour scheme, it’s easy to go down a path of neutrals or a safe tonal spectrum. However, a boldly creative colour combination will fashion a much stronger connection through a modern interior, just like the two intriguing home designs we feature here today. Each measuring under 85 sqm (900 sqft), these home interiors come alive under rich green and blue accents. Our first tour is an industrial style space, where a hint of tan and muted copper join the palette to complement ruddy exposed brickwork. The colour palette explodes with pink and bright yellow additions in our other featured abode, where art deco inspired elements help shape a daring family home.
