Previously in Colour Hunting we looked at working with the warm grey neutral that is Bonesetter, but with the vibrancy of summer having arrived let’s take a look at a brighter hue that’s sure to be a stand out in any space.
Isla Negra is fresh & punchy, evoking turquoise waters by coastal towns. In fact, this colour was inspired by poet Pablo Neruda whose home Casa de Isla Negra in Chile is a captain’s fantasy celebrating all things maritime. With sparkling waters and a dash of romanticism in mind, Isla Negra has found its way into a few space I have worked on.
As a feature colour it can build up the vibrancy of a well-lit living room looking particularly luxurious in quilted velvet or more subtly worked into a colourful ikat reimagined as a lampshade. But for the bold, Isla Negra can truly become a feature on the walls, immersing all who walk into the room in a wash of rich turquoise that sings of the deep sea.
