PROPERTY NEWS - Being in one space for an extended period such as lockdown, puts a spotlight on your surroundings and often stimulates new insights for creativity and the use of colour in future.
Kim Williams, a local South African entrepreneur, behaviour specialist and an interior creative, celebrates the use of vivid colours as a way to create a unique identity for interior spaces.
As the world of branding evolved, the importance of how we use and live with colour began to affect the way we dress and the schemes in our homes, and we began to recognise the impact that colour has on our moods.
The colour of the year inspires designers, captures the industry's attention and shines a spotlight on shades both new and old. In 2018, ultraviolet purple was completely new and unprecedented while in 2020 the use of classic blue was an already emerging trend.
Kim Williams was particularly inspired by classic blue, as it fits in with her love for bringing classical elements such as repurposed vintage items into her schemes. A key aspect of her style is mixing these vintage elements with more contemporary ones to create intimate and meaningful spaces.
When you choose a colour for a room you need to envision what it will look like in terms of layout. The bones of a room are fundamental, so spending money wisely on structural renovations is always a good choice as they can influence the return on investment of the property.
The structure and pieces that you have, your budget and the mood you want to create are all crucial considerations when refreshing any space.
Repurposing vintage pieces may not always be the cheapest option, so make sure you provide for the entire design process in your budget.
