For me no colour quite captures the rich and sumptuous feel of the summer months like elegant and stylish RASPBERRY. This bold yet soft colour choice works equally well in modern and traditional home interiors making it one of this seasons most versatile and popular interior colour choices
When combined with fresh tones and accessories this hue will add a great ‘pop’ of colour to a neutral space and provides that year long feeling of summer that will transform even the gloomiest of winter months into an uplifting and relaxing period.
The soft and dusky tones of raspberry work extremely well with light and fresh tones as well as rich and glamorous dark interior palettes. Raspberry and white are a classic colour combination that provide a light and airy feel within the home. Alongside pale blue, red and mint green it creates a perfect tonal base for the latest shabby chic style interiors. For a more dramatic look you can partner your chosen raspberry tone with black, monochrome or grey interior palettes for a rich and eye-catching splash of contemporary interior style.
A fresh scattering of raspberry coloured cushions will create an uplifting visual focal point against both dark and light upholstered seating. Bold patterns, traditional florals and plain silk, chenille and cotton look wonderful in this colour tone and can be mixed and matched to create a textural and visual appeal within your interior space. This classy colour will compliment a wide range of interior styles and can be easily introduced into your current interior decor for small but significant colour change,
Accessories create a finishing touch in any room of the home and turn even the most naked of interiors into a practical and visually exciting space. Raspberry coloured items create a pop of colour that will add a vibrant yet soft focused feel to any interior backdrop or furniture style. A rich raspberry vase, ornament or candle can add a splash of style to a plain painted or oak furniture item and mantelpiece whilst bold and colourful kitchen utensils have become hugely popular on the high street this season with crockery, toasters, mixers and kettles becoming a must have addition to any modern day kitchen.
Rugs make a fabulous alternative to a painted or wallpapered feature wall and are a great way of livening up a neutral carpet or wooden floor. This eye-catching zone of colour looks wonderful in the centre of a room or beneath a coffee table or dining table to create a focal point within your interior space. Plain rugs are the perfect way to compliment a patterned wallpaper or upholstery selection whilst a bold pattern design will take centre stage in a neutral or minimal interior space and provide a great way of concentrating colour to a specific area of your home.
Raspberry painted furniture can look fabulous in a minimal white interior or as a statement item in a glamorous bedroom or dressing room however for some bold coloured furniture can be a little overwhelming. Instead you can opt for more everyday furniture colours that will compliment this sumptuous colour palette. Black painted furniture will add a sense of opulence and flamboyance to a classically styled interior whilst an elegant and airy set of white painted items will lift the mood of even the smallest interiors and will provide a complimentary setting for a relaxed and serene home ambiance.
