Working with watercolour

July 27th, 2015 by Harry

I’ve noticed an emerging trend this summer – watercolours are everywhere – on clothes, in restaurants, on walls. It’s a beautiful addition to your decor as it’s often calming and soothing. You can incorporate the look into your home in loads of different ways.

Although they can be bright and bold, the nature of watercolour is to use soft, pastel colours that blend in together. This means that the look is versatile and goes well to any interior backdrop.

Here are a few ideas for you…

DIY

There’s nothing like getting your old paints out on a Sunday afternoon, switching your phone off and doing some arts and craft. You can make your own painting in watercolour in your spare time, like this beautiful deer, and hang it on your walls. It’s a great way of decorating a nursery or just a chance to be creative with your home.

Accessorise

This beautiful fabric is from Bluebellgray and is taken from the red rose collection. It is created with watercolours in mind, transporting you to dreamy summer fields with big oversized blooms. I love the mismatch of  cushions and hangings that contrast well with the dark blue/grey wall.Watercolour cushions

Curtains

Adding watercolour is a wonderful way to brighten up your curtains. You can find all sorts of fabrics on Etsy that can be made into curtains for you. I love this strong, bold toile design that jazzes up the plain white curtains.

Crockery

Watercolour doesn’t need to be saved for just fabric. This beautiful collection of plates can add a bit of unexpected light to your kitchen, and can even be displayed on shelves for full effect. The same goes for table cloths and vases too!
