Let’s talk about colour! Your home is your oasis and a calming space away from the hastiness of life.
Minimalism is a growing trend of decluttering and focusing on fewer features in order to avoid to free yourself from clutter and create your perfect environment. Minimalism starts with the walls.
Minimalism in the home is often associated with white walls and black accents, but that doesn't always have to be the case. A minimalist house can have a range of soft colours that complement each other to create simple colour palettes. In fact, adding colour can take an interior from looking sterile to cosy, without compromising the minimalist style.
Here are our top colours for creating the perfect minimalist colour palette.
A calm light grey colour, Dulux Terrace White creates a neutral colour while not just choosing white. This is a great colour for bathrooms or a spare room and can be couple with a blue tone colour to add a splash of colour to your space.
A aesthetically pleasing blue, Resene Alaska creates a cool, crisp environment perfect for any minimalist space. This colour can work well in bedrooms or kitchens as blue is a peaceful colour. This colour can be coupled with neutral shades or even brighter colours to develop ambience in the room. Adding touches of blue gives a room a calming vibe, while highlighting red accents.
We think the reason that millennial pink is such a trending colour at the moment is the energy it creates in the room. We love Dulux Ellen Half to create a cosy, hygge feeling in a room while also looking neutral. This colour looks crisp with greens and greys. This trend looks like it is here to stay.
We think dark colours don’t have to be scary. A rich grey will add so much value to your interior with the right aesthetics. Dark colours create a cocooning and intimate feel while adding a touch of mystery. We’ve got a thing for Resene Half Grey Friars coupled with white or cream. Minimalism doesn’t mean that you can’t have a bit of fun with colour and tones. We suggest you talk to us today about how to create your perfect minimalist oasis.
Thanks for getting the house finished before Christmas. The weather was certainly against you at times! We always enjoy having Ron, Arthur, Justin etc. at either home on either job.Craig and Maureen
Very many thanks to you and Ron and John. Those guys did a great job and I would recommend Mitchell Decorators to everyone. Everyone who comes here remarks on the job, and now that I have all the pictures in place, my home looks just great.Daphne
Thank you so much for your patience and kindness over the past 18 months. You have, with your generous and gracious attitude, been one of my pillars of strength through a difficult time.Peter
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support over many years at Hohepa. When former Chair John Morrissey suggested that I meet up with you and consider using your services, I was somewhat reserved on the matter. However, seeing that John had used you to build his own home, and to effect renovations and repairs at his own factory, I thought it wise to see his suggestion through, and at least to meet with you. I can now describe the meeting as quite fortuitous for Hohepa, as within a few years we were rocked by the earthquakes and there was major work to be carried out to get both sites up and running again. With the massive additional workload that this brought, I can honestly say that I wouldn't have been able to cope without your help and support through those difficult times. The earthquake repairs were, at times, virtually a full time job.Raymond Eberhard
Cookie Time have used Mitchell Decorators on a number of office painting jobs and always had great service. The staff are always happy to help and leave the work area clean and tidy. There have never been any problems with working odd hours or over a week end.Dean Gibbs
