The moment I set eyes on the entryway featured in today’s Palette Addict post I knew it was perfect for Bright.Bazaar. This is a fine example of a simple yet creative idea for decorating with colour and the boldly painted floor for an entryway or boot room makes total sense. This scheme works because it strikes a stylish balance by pairing a strong and vivid green for the painted floorboards with a monochromatic palette there up on the walls and furniture. By keeping the main introduction of hue to the floor only it gives it added emphasis in the scheme; just a few small splashes of the green are needed elsewhere in the space to punctuate the black and white palette. In this example the floorboards create a natural pattern which works well to soften the block addition of such a strong shade.
I’m keen to replicate this look in my own apartment. A new floor is an ideal way to create a stylish and dramatic statement in a space because it covers such a large surface area of the ‘decorating’ real estate of a room. There are some stylish options on Factory Direct Laminate Flooring that have caught my eye. With this approach it’s important to use your flooring choice and colour to create a versatile base palette that will complement and anchor the other elements of the scheme. Have you ever painted a floor in a hot hue? What colour would you choose if you were to paint a floor in your home?
