Material boards are the best resource you can have before heading into a colour selection process. It’s a reference point for your collective thoughts, design inspiration and colour schemes, so you don’t lose sight of the bigger picture. A European inspired scheme appears to be very on-point right now, so Ausmar Homes and Carlene Duffy have partnered together to create our own interpretation of this design, that you can reference in your own home design selections.

A European-inspired scheme feels especially on-point right now. It’s centred on a look that’s rich in texture, reflected in a tonal colour scheme, layered in neutrals with warm undertones. When it comes to decoration in this scheme, it’s about showcasing few pieces but making sure each piece is a piece of art in its own right.

Key elements to consider

  • European schemes are about showcasing fewer pieces that are art on their own.
  • The warm pink undertone of the tile was the starting point for this scheme.
  • The Laminex batten board would make striking wall detail.
  • The aged bronze handle adds a sense of warmth and drama to a space.
  • The rich walnut timber grain laminate provides enough contrast to help anchor the look.
  • Grasscloth wallpaper adds texture without adding a pattern into the mix.
