Though I’m all for the minimal luxury of pared-back interior designs, there’s something instantly joy-inducing about a little splash of colour in the home.
Here are some simple ways to introduce colour into your home and add a splash of colour to your interior design.
Add a splash of colour with a colourful rug
A quick and non-permanent solution for introducing colour is with a bright and bold rug. Simply lay your favourite shaggy rug or runner in a quiet corner to instantly pep it up – I love this contemporary multicoloured design from The Rug Seller – hand-carved triangles in various head-turning shades will garner endless compliments from guests, and its thick pile offers endless comfort between your toes.
Paint A Feature Wall
Another simple way to show off your favourite colour is with a feature wall. This one is so easy to do yourself – simply invest in a tub or two of whatever paint shade is tickling your fancy this season and get rolling!
Choose a small wall to start with – this will ensure you don’t overwhelm a pared-back decorating scheme. And if this sounds like too much commitment, you can always paint the inside of your favourite bookshelf for a subtle pop of colour instead.
Buy A Bright Armchair
Colourful armchairs and sofas are all the rage for AW18 – from emerald to grape, cocktail chairs and Chesterfields in rich shades are the perfect way to make a bold statement with colour this season. I love designs in grand velvet upholstery; not only do they add an element of grandeur to any room, but they are so soft and cosy to cuddle up on.
Buy Some Flowers
And if all the above options sound like too much commitment in terms of time and money, then why not turn to Mother Nature and introduce some freshly cut flowers to your space. This way you can pick and choose which colour to focus on depending on what’s in season. Not only do fresh flowers add a touch of luxury and homeliness to any room, they also smell beautiful – a true treat for the senses at a snip of the price.
Do you like a more muted colour palette when decorating or would you prefer to add a splash of colour to your home?
