Pop Art styling with primary colours
If neutral colours don't quite get your heart racing, maybe it's time to play with colours that pack a punch! Say hello to Poppy, Navy and Mustard (with a special guest appearance from Olive!)
They're bright, they're bold and they're full of personality. While primary colours are cute for kids, we love a grown-up take on them, styled with a Pop Art twist. With their retro-inspired shapes, lockers are right at home in the 1950s Pop Art era. And the Mustard rainbow would make Andy Warhol proud!
Styled as a standalone pop of colour, or teamed up in a powerhouse colour combo, here's how we make primary colours sing.

If you've got a muted space just crying out for some colour, a solo locker in a primary colour is the perfect way to brighten it! Choosing one feature colour creates a powerful focus. This grey wall and monochrome artwork lets our Lowdown in Poppy shine. With small accent pieces in primary tones of blue and yellow thrown into the mix, this combination is bold and joyful.
Want to take things up a notch? Mixing two primary colours will give your space a vibrant injection of colour that still feels curated. The three primary tones — blue, red and yellow — are strong enough to hold their own, so you can't go wrong no matter which two you choose! We've gone with Poppy and Navy here for a rich, dramatic look, using an artwork to tie it together.
Feeling adventurous? There's an art to using a primary-coloured palette but done right, it totally pays off! Going for a base of white and neutrals gives the colours space to breathe, and opting for clean lines and solid surfaces rather than patterns ensure things don't become too busy. A trio of primary coloured Skinnys in a white room lets the colours do the talking for a high-impact effect. Or go all out like Miio Store's Nina Battley (check out her home tour!) and layer in artwork and accessories for a bold palette that's totally cohesive.
We know green isn't technically a primary colour, but we love how Olive works with a primary palette! We give her an honorary place in our Pop Art lineup. After all, rules are made to be broken.
