JAPAN...⠀

Rainbow colour schemes - much as they can be playful, uplifting and convey a fun, boho vibe - can get a little too 'toddler' if you're not careful. It's all about balance and the proportion of your colour 'splashes' in a single space. And this can be daunting. Do I go for the whole wall in that colour? Do I upholster such a big ticket item as a sofa in it? How do I decide which shades go where? Undoubtedly you have to be bold to make any kind of impact. Conversely, if you shy away from the multi-colour combo (if that was your goal) and just stick to accessories - you're only going to end up with a decidedly underwhelming, 'bitty' room. If all this daunts you a little, have no fear because tomorrow, I'm going to link to a number of brilliant Insta accounts I've recently come across who demonstrate precisely how to do colour well. Watch these squares for the links...and tag any friends you know who are in need of some deco colour inspo!!⠀

In the meantime - another brilliant solution for introducing rainbow colour into your home (both for the uninitiated and the seasoned colour creatives/serial renovators out there) is to hang one of these two beauties on your wall - available online now (click link in bio). They are incredibly beautiful, silkscreen prints of the legendary Gion festival that takes places in the city streets in Japan in July. The prints, by @shogundesigns, are each numbered and arrive in an elegant, boxed frame ready for hanging. There are two versions available, each with slightly different multi-colour combos. If you love the Japanese aesthetic or are a recent visitor (Japan is top of my long-haul wishlist) why not capture your memories of the country and create a talking point. They leap out from dark walls, add zing and focus to pale walls and layer up brilliantly against mono-patterned wallpaper too...rainbow colour sorted (nursery not included).⠀
