Colour blocking, like ombre, is a trend that has been about for a few seasons now across all design genres, especially fashion and interiors. It’s an easy trend to get involved with and if you do it right, and you’ll end up with a simple, beautiful look. Watch out for bold and jarring colours. If that’s your thing, that’s great but it’s also a little reminiscent of the 1980s!
If you want to introduce effective and easy colour blocking, think about your soft furnishings. If you keep your floors and walls neutral, add some curtains with block plain colours and make the curtains a feature of your room. For this look to work you have to keep the rest of the room neutral, although the accent ceiling works well in this photo, this room is large and bright enough to pull it off. In a smaller, darker room a coloured ceiling will make the room look small.
