Guest Post: Color Filled UK Rooms
Hi, I’m Susi, a writer for Design Shuffle, where designers and design lovers from around world can share projects and ideas for inspiration. Stop by—it's free! I'm so happy to be here at Enzy Living, one of my favorite design blogs. Today I'm writing about color filled UK rooms. The British have a long love affair with color and pattern. They boldly mix the two to create interior designs that are quintessentially British. These are some of my favorite ways the Brits fill their rooms with color. Enjoy! The British don't shy away from color when it comes to decorating. Or pattern. Love the lemony yellow curtains mixed with reds and pinks in this sitting room. The Union Jack is a beloved design element that sets the color palette for this living room. Reds and blues pop against creamy whites. Playing off the Union Jack pattern, this colorful DIY chest of drawers creates a charming touch in a UK inspired room. Love the mix of yellow, white and mauvey browns in this colorful bedroom at the London boutique hotel, Haymarket. A modern take on the British love of florals. English rose pink looks lovely paired with light grey and olive green in this colorful UK interior design. Styled by The Designers Guild, an amazing design house that loves color and pattern. A riot of colorful stripes and zig zags makes this apartment at the Soho Hotel in London uber chic. Using either the striped sofas or the zig-zag curtains would give a room a colorful pop of UK style. Blue and white is a classic English color combination inspired by china patterns. Love the classic Chesterfield sofa, another fantastic British design. Decorating ideas from a canvas? While this interior is a painting, it is a gorgeous example of the British love of color and pattern. Love the blue walls behind the green chaise. “Evening at home” (Edward John Poynter, UK, 1836-1919) [ Images 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 ] This post was created by Design Shuffle, a social-media site where members can connect with a variety of interior designers including San Francisco interior designers and Boston interior designers.
