All things bright and beautiful
No corner of your home need be without mood-lifting colour in the year ahead. Here’s how to introduce a kaleidoscope of hues, in both shared and private spaces indoors and out, and on every conceivable surface.
After an annus emphatically horribilis a collective brightening of mood should be top of most 2021 public service announcements. And while we’re not advocating you take to the streets hand-in-hand with your neighbours (not yet, anyway), we’re breaking out our megaphones to proclaim that bold colour in your home will certainly do the trick. Painters and tilers required, you say? Not so, say Alessandra French and Ara Salomone, the founders of Perth’s State of Kin design studio. Having recently decorated their Shutter House project with colours great and small and with standout pieces from design stalwarts the likes of Patricia Urquiola, Inga Sempé, Kettal and Moroso, they’re poised to know. From kaleidoscopic seating and abstract artworks to quirky tableware and unusually shaped rugs, we show you how to replicate the look.
