Add colour into your home without painting the walls

Colour can completely transform any room and will enhance, lift and compliment your chosen interior design style. Playing with colours, the different shades and tints can be both exciting and nerve-racking. There are so many colours that might catch your fancy at the same time and to use them all at once would be nothing but chaotic. The fact that particular colours trend at certain times of the year and then get changed also doesn’t encourage painting as such.

So how can you brighten up your interior space without lifting a paintbrush?

There are many creative ways to introduce colour into your home, a few will be highlighted below.

A simple way to introduce colour into your home is by embracing nature. A vase full of beautiful colourful blooms is a nice addition to any room. Using pretty coloured pots for your indoor plants is an easy way to liven up a dull space.

You can also introduce colour into your interior space with art. From a statement piece to a simple framed print or tea towel, art adds drama and a splash of colour to your walls.

Looking at the living room, the most prominent feature furniture is usually the sofa/couch/settee. You can have this statement or feature furniture piece in a saturated colour or pattern that is in line with the current trend. This can be dressed up or down with the addition of colourful throws, blankets, cushions and such.

Your cushions can be in an array/bevy of colours. As you well know, cushions can make a big impact and brighten up the entire space. Consider dressing your sofa/couch/settee or bed with colourful throw cushions or new cushion covers. When using cushions for colour, you get to play with more colours and patterns as you can constantly change the cushion covers to mix and match colours.

Brightly coloured towels in fun designs are a fast and cost-effective way to inject personality and style. Having them feature in your kitchen and bathroom gives pops of colours in otherwise seemingly sterile places.

Another option is to add colour to your kitchen with plates, bowls, glasses and utensils in a range of delicious hues. You can update your kitchen accessories from the sterile and monochrome colours we are all used to and liven things up with different pops of colours. Kitchen appliances come in very trendy colours now that can be mixed and match to your heart’s delight.

Colourful baskets are a practical storage option for just about any room in the house. They are available in many shapes, designs, sizes and are made from a host of materials. They are very useful and also a fun and easy way to experiment with colour.

Finally, you can be creative with your beddings and linen. There are so many bold coloured and pretty patterned beddings and linen options on offer that updating sheets, quilt covers and scatter cushions to transform bedrooms is too easy. Mix and match patterns, textures and colours for a more colourful impact on your living space.
