Tropical Interior Colour Palette Inspiration

By Hollie Brooks @MiaFleur_home

We Audenza ladies do love a tropical vibe, so Amelia has put together 3 tropical color schemes, to give you some interior color palette inspiration, and to see how the different color palettes affect the look of a room.  Green is the mainstay of each design, but with subtle twists that create astonishingly vibrant, but opposed, vibes.  From overtly feminine, to full on masculine, to give you the idea of how color choices change an interior project.

As we all know preparing a color palette before beginning an interior project is the proper way to go about it.  That said, I’ve never done one in my life.   Shameful admission I know, but never fear, Amelia is a great fan of them so we have an expert on hand.  Every room in her new home has a color palette and mood board before work begins.  It’s certainly the way to avoid mistakes, and to gather your thoughts in a coherent way.  As my thoughts have never been coherent, would it work for me?  Who knows, but I’ve promised Amelia the next room I redo will have its very own color palette to start with, so we will see how that works out!

What do you think to Amelia’s tropical color palette inspiration?  I think if you are unsure of how you want a room to look, and are scared of making mistakes, a color palette, along with a mood board, has to be a fail-safe way of bringing ideas together and marshalling your thoughts.  That said, I’m possibly too old to change my ways, but I really am going to try it next time.

Hollie has nudged me to say that the time-honoured way of doing color palettes i.e. paint samples, fabric swatches and magazine images is still the way forward for most of us.  Apparently, I was implying we could all use photoshop etc to achieve the samples Amelia’s way.  But, being a complete technophobe, it never occurred to me to use a computer for such things.  Perish the thought!
