Colour Blocking is Back!

Tableau I by the Dutch painter Piet Mondrian

Colour Blocking is Back!

With summer upon us, it is the perfect time to add some super bright colours into your home, and a big trend that has returned is colour blocking.

Colour blocking traditionally used primary colours and was created by the Dutch painter Piet Mondrian who painted the unforgettable Tableau I (1921) and Composition II in Red, Blue, and Yellow (1930). However, time has evolved Mondrian’s creation, with colour blocking now using a variety of bright colours. 

Adding a range of bold colours or a singular shade into your home will instantly modernise your interiors and create a new playful look. 

Here are a few ideas to get you on trend with colour blocking:
