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!

Client Testimonial:“Natalie was charming and professional. She listened to our ideas, developed and added to them introducing colours and ideas we would never have thought of or were not brave enough to use ourselves. She delivered a fantastic end result without fuss, co-ordinating decorators, electricians and soft furnishers. All within our budget.” Matthew James.
