An open living space can have its benefits – great light and a sense of spaciousness. However, even an open living space needs a little organization to function well. Create a simple lightweight room divider with an open shelving unit. You can use high units or low units, either will create definition, without making your living space feel smaller. It will also provide great storage. Place larger storage items at the bottom of the shelving unit and lightweight objects above to keep that open feel.
We might be doing ourselves an injustice, though. "Basic colour theory always refers to blue being one of the cool colours, but that does not mean to say it will make your room feel cold," says Amy Conn, from Neptune design team. It is also a mistake to think that all blues are cold. "Colour temperature depends on the base and what tints and shades are added - for example, a blue with a yellow or red base will feel warmer than one with a purple or green base," she explains.
Remember that you can think of materials as a colour contrast too," Amy points out. "For example, with Neptune Flax Blue paint, oak is one of its best partners because it combines both a tonal and textural foil. So, bring that in through flooring and furniture - and even in aspects like lamp bases."
