Monday Inspiration {Pale & Interesting}

I do find that MAC adverts are visually interesting.  Whilst the one below is not as powerful as their adverts with Iris Arfel or Miss Piggy, it just hits the right note with how I am feeling.

The MAC advert has strength in its paleness. Which led me to look at interiors where pale and interesting creates a sense of space and harmony. By keeping the colour palatte pale and neutral they maximise light and space leading to tranquil and stylish spaces. 

By keeping colours neutral it’s important to mix up textures and the visual tension. Pairing old with new, contrasting smooth with rough and teaming femininity and glamour (think lustrous mirrors and surfaces).

Do pale interiors rock your world? Do you live in perfect harmony?

    Oooh I think those are beautiful. Oyster pink is one of my favourite colours and mixed with icy blues and page gold is so elegant and old fashioned hollywood. It's all satin nightgowns and champagne cocktails. I don't think I'd have the sophistication to pull together a scheme like this. Beautiful though.
