To continue with creating a theme for your home, we asked Jillian Harris of LOVE IT or LIST IT VANCOUVER and designer of the 2013 PNE Prize Home her thoughts on colour.
Is there such thing as too much colour?
Jillian’s immediate response? No! Although this year’s Prize Home has a fairly neutral, peaceful theme, Jillian loves colourful spaces and says, “The spaces that inspire me the most are full of colour.”
However, there’s definitely a way of doing colour correctly in your home, as she mentions, “In order to have a successfully colourful space, I think you need high-end fabrics, high-end finishes and high-end furniture, and I truly believe it should be done by a professional.”
Admitting that even she hasn’t mastered the art of using lots of colour in her designs, when done correctly it can have a lot of impact on the attractiveness of a home. She suggests that you start with neutrals and integrate colour bit by bit, until you’ve achieved something you’re truly happy with.
With complementary tones and colours throughout, this year’s Prize Home is a true work of art. Check out Jillian’s fantastic job well done and don’t forget to buy your lottery tickets!
A hint of blue in the bedding or some bright fruit in the kitchen help add a pop of colour into the neutral space of the Prize Home.
