This Pop Art lounge is so bright and playful; the owner uses primary colours to the full. The canary yellow sofa cleverly picks up the colour in the adjoining room – a trick often used by interior and garden designers to help the flow of a space. The sofa also contrasts well against royal blue cushions and tomato red nest of tables.
The large, attention-grabbing original triptych artwork by by Elena Fuks brings originality and a personal touch to the interior. Details such as the cheeky monkey desk lamp, Sputnik ceiling light, zebra print vases and hot pink pencil pot round off the bold look perfectly.

Get their look
You all know how much we love bright interiors, so it should come as no surprise that we’ve chosen to feature this kitchen decorated in bold primary colours.
This is a family kitchen in a 1960s, ex-council, end-of-terrace house in Dulwich, London. It may not be the biggest of kitchens; but what it lacks in size, it makes up for in storage space. There’s a yellow, U-shaped bank of overhead and floor-standing cupboards. There’s a floor to ceiling room divider that offers double-sided open shelving. Even the end of the worktop has been turned into ingenious cookbook shelves!

Plastic is oft maligned – even we were highlighting the negative side of the material in our post last week about reusable shopping bags. But there are many positives too of course – plastic is an incredible material. It’s versatile, lightweight, comes in an almost unlimited array of colours and can be moulded into any shape. Here are some favourite finds on a trawl through Etsy.
Curated by H is for Home
This week’s Tuesday Huesday image is from an apartment available for let in Malmö, Sweden. The mix of strong, bright colours and patterns is just right – not jarring in the least.
Have a look at the estate agent’s website for more gorgeously decorated Scandinavian properties!
What a lovely lot of bright, cheerful Rice melamine dishes! And I’m in love with the yellow dishwasher. I’ve looked on the internet to see if I could find it but the closest I came to it is this compact model available at John Lewis.
This photo makes me almost look forward to tackling the washing up… almost!
