How do you hue?Decorating with colour doesn’t have to mean slathering it all over the walls – layering furniture and accessories is a more noncommittal way of doing it. See more of this home on p68.I’LL BE HONEST, my home is quite neutral. Walls, kitchen, bathrooms – they’re all white. The flooring consists of tiles, timber and carpet in shades of grey. And my furnishings, well… apart from art and the occasional cushion, let’s just say I prefer a pared-back palette there, too. But all that is about to change. Sort of. I’m getting a new sofa and I’m 99 per cent committed to the idea of navy blue. Sure, it’s not in-your-face colour, but it’s a start, right?What’s your relationship with colour? Do you use it with confidence? Or…

in the mood for colour

a cool changeColour trends are a bit like ex-boyfriends – as one comes to an end, we gravitate towards the polar opposite. After a long love affair with millennial pink, the seesaw is leaning towards dreamy blues and soft greens. They’re calming and easy to live with, so what better colour to paint a quarter feature wall with than cool mint (opposite)? Note how the darker green creates an extended skirting board that doesn’t line up with the panelling, making the room seem taller than it is.make this screen!

THE ALCHEMY OF THINGS BY KAREN McCARTNEYThere are books about interiors, and then there’s The Alchemy Of Things, a visual jaunt inside the creative minds of homeowners who take decorating to a deeply personal place. Via a series of stunning photographs, author Karen McCartney invites you into 18 homes across Australia and Europe, many of which have never been published before. No two are alike – one chapter explores a cottage on Tasmania’s Bruny Island, another looks inside an apartment with views of the Eiffel Tower – but what they have in common is their alchemy. For some, this is the intuitive arrangement of furniture and art; in others, it’s the profound emotion. Some are filled with pieces acquired over a lifetime; others are an evolving culmination of ideas slowly…
