Pick a THEME COLOUR and sprinkle that colour throughout your home with subtlety.
This can be done by choosing DIFFERENT SHADES of that colour. For example, when using a colour to decorate- such as purple, make sure to select different shades of that colour; light purples, medium purples, deep purples, lilac, eggplant etc…. By doing so, you add depth and interest to the colour without overwhelming your buyers eyes. It’ll also give a sense of flow and fluidity to anyone who walks through your space.
Using the same colour scheme throughout a small space can be very beneficial, especially if your home needs to show openness and spaciousness. The last thing we want, is for any space to show small and choppy. The impression is to show your space like one big open area -with function and character at each corner- all interrelated.
Looking for a neutral colour paint combination idea?
With so many colours, tones, and shades to choose from, it’s no wonder we have trouble narrowing down to just a few- enough to cover a condo space.
If you don’t have a strong desire towards any particular colour or shade, below is an example of a colour combination that work well together. This color scheme will help open and liven any small space. Like a breath of fresh air, these colours are soft and light, and with the right amount of brightness and depth that will give your condo a clean and modern make over.
I just finished applying this palette to our latest project at the Azura 2.
My pick- check it out.
I still remember my childhood days of using outhouses- all too clearly. Until this day, outhouses are still my least favorite room/ structure, and I will try to avoid at all costs. These “outdoor bathrooms” were never well designed nor tastefully decorated… 20 years + later, and these tiny outdoor rooms are still cold and uncomfortable, dark and scary, and definitely not very attractive. But why? I will never understand.
Growing up, I had many fears of using outhouses: fear of falling in, fear of being trapped inside, fear of someone/ something hiding down inside, fear of mid exposure -the structure falling apart while I’m inside, fear of death from holding my breath… Eventhough I survived unscathed, I still dislike.
This past weekend, at the BC Home and Garden Show, I saw heaven on earth. An “outhouse heaven” to be exact, and I was immediately mesmerized (see attached photos). I must have stood fixed in front of these beautiful outhouse displays for hours… I was genuinely captivated.
Yes, there is still hope.
I tend to gravitate towards a more simple, elegant, and minimal design when it comes to filling spaces.
Though the pieces need to be carefully thought out and particularly chosen for its contrast and colours.
Colours need to either compliment, reflect, or contrast each other in order to entice the eyes…
Remember to limit your colour(s) of choice to <3 per area or room- this will enable the eyes to transition more easily throughout your space.
Not many people enjoy or appreciate a busy decor – something one should be mindful of when decorating/ staging.
You can always find beauty in simplicity.

Showing off your love for a particular colour (in this case- blues and purples) should not require painting of walls or purchasing a new sofa. Assuming all walls and large/ expensive furniture items are of neutral colours.
With minor changes to arts, accessories and florals, you can easily achieve a new look for your space… regardless of your colour obsession. Tip—>use mirrors to reflect colour pieces. This is good way to add more colours into a space without overcrowding.
Keep it clean and simple!
