Create a seductive, bewitching environment through control of colour and light:
Rich and Vibrant
Shades that reflect light in your room can evoke a sense of the exotic in your home. Try introducing royal blues, vibrant purples, emerald greens, brilliant saffron, and bold crimsons to generate a seductive oriental atmosphere.
Morocco is a land of contrast, bring the cool of the Mediteranean costline into your home by adding clear blues, aquamarine, turquoise and white. The use of blue, especially on doors and shutters, is believed to date back to Egyptian times, and was thought to ward off evil spirits.
Combining warm natural colours can evoke feelings of comfort in your home. Careful selection of tones from terracottas, reds, cinnamons, amber, saffron and aubergine can contribute to a room's warmth and ambience.
Create a calming, peaceful retreat from the cares of the world using creams, white, taupe and sand colours.
All That Glitters
Conjure an atmosphere of 1001 nights by including bright, metallic colours in your design theme. Bring a sense of opulence to the room using brass lanterns, gold and silver fabrics and bronze soft furnishings.
