I have to say ... I find it fairly easy to work with colour ... I like adding colour into my home and I love how a colour can help give a room a feel or emotional story.
What I do find is that working with black and white can be a lot more difficult. You have to use different tones of white and I do struggle with that. Get it wrong and black and white can look cold, stark and totally unfriendly. Get it right and it looks amazing.
This house gets it right in every way .... its warm, elegant and yet really simple. Personally, I think you have to be really talented and brave to pull a look this complicated off ... well done!
