As nature begins to explode with the multi-hued joys of spring, it’s an opportune time to reflect on how much colour forms part of our lives. There’s no underestimating the effect of colour on the human psyche, how it makes us feel and how it reflects our personality – from the clothes we wear and to the cars we drive, to the shades we choose for our home décor.

Emotionally intense reds, refreshing and tranquil greens, energetic and happiness-inducing yellows… research has long proven a direct correlation between colour and mood. Aside from the psychological effects, choices of colour and how they are combined can hugely influence how a space is perceived; paint a ceiling white and it immediately gives the illusion of height…add some earthy accents and you instantly bring warmth to a room. It’s powerful stuff.
This issue, we unleash colour in the kitchen with expert tips to create your perfect palette, Throwing Shade, (p38). For the bathroom, we take a look at moody monochrome, one of the boldest but most versatile colour trends that’s hard to get wrong, Darkness & Light (p68). Equally sensory activating, we round up the best showerheads guaranteed to stimulate and invigorate, Focus on…Sleek and Stylish Showerheads (p56).
