Colour Wow to a Neutral Space

Back in the winter I worked with a friend to do some space planning in her basement. She wanted a space that was cosy, organized and functional. They use their basement mainly for watching TV and gaming. It was time for a new look and to move away from the brown colour scheme.

We chose new carpet for the space (which is a deep grey) and used that as the starting point for paint colour which is going on the walls as I write this post!

I put together some ideas for cushions and fabric options for faux Roman blinds that are going to cover the two non-operational windows.

The starting point for the colour scheme was a delicious Mediterranean blue table lamp. I’ve incorporated blues with some yellows, and a pop of red. All anchored by a geometric grey patterns.

Check it out …

The neutral backdrop allows a ton of options to accessorize and finish the space.
What do you think?

  1. Years ago a decorator advised my family that there should be a” splash ” of red in every room. Sarah calls it a “pop” of colour. Do you agree?

    What is your opinion on the psychology of colour?

  2. Love this colour scheme and the added pattern you get with the pillows! Pretty space.
