This week’s Colour Watch – Teal… At Murray Hurst Interiors, we like to add a touch of colour to a space to set a mood – we like to call it the ‘Jam’ in a scheme. The mellow tone of teal works beautifully with its complimentary colour, coral, or with a simple neutral setting. Interestingly, as well as bringing a retro feel of the 60’s, like our previous colour watch, Aubergine, it too has a rich and regal feel. Teal is versatile in any room in the home, we find it works particularly well in the living room and bedroom.
This weeks colour watch… Aubergine.
One of our favourite colours to work with currently at Murray Hurst interiors is the complex and brooding colour – Aubergine.You may think it seems like a deep, rich choice, but when mixed with complementary colours such as yellow tones, particularly the warm tones of ochre and also sharp lime green, it can create a beautifully striking scheme. Aubergine, like its lighter cousin purple, can introduce a regal element to a room and when teamed with metal finishes such as copper, chrome and gold it oozes sophistication and luxury. This colour has signified wealth, power and opulence since at least the time of the Roman Republic, so lets keep the power of aubergine evolving in our designs and indulge ourselves in aubergines rich tones!
