It's a dreary day here, and I've got a boatload of errands to run later, so I thought a quick house tour would brighten the day. Jewellery designer Emily Green's beautiful home in Bristol England has just the right combination of incredible colors and plentiful light to get me going. It's a beautiful older home that has been renovated to take wonderful advantage of its best features. Great use has been made of the height in the rooms and the large windows. Light floods the space, with pale walls letting the splashes of bright, beautiful color really sing.

In the kitchen, stunning pendant lights add a lush, modern touch to a traditional space.

Drapery throughout the rooms uses touches of bold colors from other elements in the room, but in soft, diffuse applications that compliment the light that fills the space.

It's a wonderful example of being fearless with color, but without heavy saturating tones. See more in the July issue of Living Etc.
