Little shots of happiness in bright colour

Living in a big, busy city it's easy to feel over stimulated sometimes and I often find myself seeking the solace of calm, neutral spaces, however, there's no denying the shot of energy and cheerfulness brought by a shot of bright colour. While this space boasts classic architectural details and some beautiful pieces of furniture in timeless, neutral shades (like that stunning chair, below), without the bright artwork and accessories, I feel it could look border on looking a little drab or ordinary. The little shots of bright colour make this space pop and bright such a fantastic energy.

See the initial scouting photos for this shoot at Style at Home editor Margot Austin's blog for the full before and after effect, and be wowed by the magic of a little styling and some fantastic photography.
