Unifying Home Interiors With Horizontal Colour Blocking

Horizontal colour blocking unifies a space, wrapping the walls together like a ribbon around a gift.

We’ll also be taking some full house tours to see how the established colour blocking palettes translate into a cohesive scheme throughout bedrooms and bathrooms too. There is inspiration for incorporating textured panels, wall paint effects and colourful accent furniture. These adaptable decor schemes each show how a contrasting colour palette can balance out a room, as well as how brighter elements can be subtly subdued with softly muted shades.
