Everyone loves a good splash of colour. It doesn’t matter whether you are decorating your first home, or you are still trying to decide how to decorate your bedroom at your parent’s house. Colour has to be the best defining feature that you could give to your space. Why? Because it’s beautiful! Colours show so much about the mood of a home, that you really cannot be without colour. You want your home to look good, not dull.Every single colour out there has more than one shade, more than one depth. You can mash together more than one colour and create a textured look that really reflects your personality.
When it comes to it, you need to step away from the crushed velvet grey-and-pink combo that Instagram would lead you to believe is cute. Trust us, it’s not cute to look exactly like everyone else, and this new trend for all-grey rooms is just boring! We do not live in a black and white world. So, step into some technicolour and splash some light in your home.
Add Flowers. No matter which room you’re in, flowers will brighten the space. Florals can be fresh or fake, and when you use them around the home, flowers can add texture and beautiful bold colours.
Window Watching. The windows are the eyes of the home, so, just like you would with your own eyes: enhance them! Add bright yellow shutters from a plantation based shutters company. Layer some deep red curtains over white blinds for contrast. Get the windows sparkly clean and add some blue rolling blinds. No matter how you do it, you need to do it for the beauty you’ll see as you gaze into the house!
Feature Wall. Again, stay away from the grey and pink crushed velvet feature walls. Go for a bold, single colour to contrast the rest of the room. Feature walls can make the entire room come to life with very little effort, so add some artwork or a mirror to it. Make your feature wall the smallest room in the house – it’ll be far easier to maintain.
Throws & Pillows. For pops of colour all over the place, consider adding throws to the beds and sofas, pillows to the window seats and armchairs and generally just add texture to the room. Make sure that your colours are the opposite of what you are aiming for on the walls so it’s not all the same. So, if your furniture is largely dark and the walls light, choose contrastingly shocking colours. Bright pink on black furniture, bold blue on grey furniture, etc.
It’s so easy to add bold and bright colours to your home, you just have to be willing to think outside the box and splash the colour around. Don’t be uniform, don’t follow trends for the “Gram. Set your own trends and watch how quickly your home comes together. You may surprise yourself with how hold you can really be when faced with new colour choices and moving away from the choices of others.
