White walls beg for colour! In combination with colourful furniture and a stunning artwork, you may find yourself in your dream interior! The red couch in below interior is a real eye-catcher in this otherwise black-white interior. A beautiful high wall, a broad couch – the landscape oriented painting fits perfectly!

accessART artist Frank Le Pair makes highly textured, colourful paintings. Red lines of happines appears to consist of an apparent randomness of lines which find their meaning in a larger whole. But, the interplay of all the lines is formed to a own text signature, a way a writer forms letters to words and sentences.

This artwork would work perfectly on a high white wall, with a couch in one of the colours of the painting.

4. Mellow Yellow

Combining the soft yellow of the pillows with the stronger yellow in the painting creates a gorgeous setting. The slight touch of pink and the beige colours of the couch and wall complement this beautifully. The painting is subtle, but definitely present in this interior.

5. Black and White power

With black and white you cannot go wrong. A solid, relaxed interior that has many variations. The walls, furniture, carpet, lamps – black and white are the perfect colour to vary. Also the artworks in the interior are black and white. For this look, you may think of prints at first. But what about ink drawings? Watercolour paintings? Or acrylic on canvas? There are so many  variations!
