Inter Designer Jane Lockhart uses colour theory to break homeowners out of their colour ruts and transform pale-toned pads into spaces filled with perfectly balanced and sometimes bold hues. With her trusty colour wheel she chooses elements that are reflected in the homeowner’s lives to help inspire their selection of colours and sense of design. Piles of paint chips and fabric swatches can be overwhelming, so instead, a chocolate truffle becomes the inspiration for a rich brown wall, a bright red tomato becomes the force behind a hot red kitchen and beach sand prompts the selection of a soothing new living room carpet.
