Moran Prize Portrait and Photography Exhibition!

Today I took a look at the amazing Moran Prizes finalist portrait and photography exhibition!  The exhibition finishes this weekend so try and get along if you're in the local Sydney area.

My favourites were the magnificent portraits of Kirk Pengilly (Titled Never Tear Us Apart) by Ernesto Arrisueno and  Robyn Nevin(Titled Conversation) by Vincent Fantauzzo.  Such brilliant work!

Having trouble choosing the Colours for your home?

Let LCD help you through the myriad of colours choices available for painting the interior or exterior of your home or office!  Little Cove Design makes colour selections from all of the reputable paint companies and doesn't specify from only one paint manufacturer.

If you need help to narrow down the search, a new app is available from Dulux called the Dulux Colour App and you can read more about it by clicking on the link below.

                                                                Dulux Colour App

I would rate this App an 8 out of 10.  It gives you a large number of colours to browse through in the Dulux range, you can search and tag your favourite colours. You can also visualise the colours on exterior and interior images. The capture tools allows you to colour match existing paint colours in your home or surroundings but the one feature that's missing is the ability to visualise or recolour images of your own.

But that's where LCD can provide a personalised colour consulting service for you.  Read more about it here.....LCD Colour consulting on our new look blog.

Enjoy the colour in your life and if you feel like a change contact LCD for a detailed colour selection report.

Summer Brights - Colour your world

Last post I focused on B & W interiors but this post is all about colour!

We are seeing a fabulous mix of colours in some beautiful summer dresses and this style can also be reflected in your home too.

This canary yellow is such a great colour combination with the grey. This is also a very flexible palette which can be updated easily by changing the rug/flooring and a throw for the love seat. image
Mixing patterns can be tricky but when you get the right mix of colour and geometry it can work so well together, as in this stunning living area. image and great blog article about mixing patterns from
