I’m sure you’ve thought about putting a pink brush in your house. It’s not just a feminine color, it’s the ultimate expression of sweetness and harmony.

It creates a special corner in any of its versions: chewing gum, powdered, coral, acid, magenta… This bedroom has an enormous visual power, because it increases creativity and energy. Paint one of the walls, choose contrasting fabrics on the cushions -whites, blues and turquoises go very well-, some neutral curtains to let the light through and a piece of design, like this velvet pub, to give personality.

In neutral

The neutral wins points in decoration. Grey is one of the most versatile palettes in decoration, both for furniture and accessories. That is why shades are very important, so a grey can be cold or warm, depending on the amount of yellow or blue pigment used in the mixture. One of the values of the grey range is that it lacks psychological effect and gives depth to the rooms, so it is one of the most used to paint the walls. If you want to be more creative, paint the wall in two tones: they combine very well the light grey with the coral and with the yellow.

In small flats, it is key to providing light and, in larger homes, it offers a thousand possibilities for decoration.
