5 gorgeous ways to colour your home beautiful

Splash a little colour around your home to give your space a whole new personality

Adding pops of colour to your home can really draw the eye to features and accessories in each room. But don’t limit it to paint ideas; you could coordinate coloured accessories, introduce tiles or textiles, upholster a chair or simply display fresh flowers. If your decor feels too neutral, a simple spruce-up with colour can be all you need to get inspired about your home again.

Add lampshades Lighting is key to your room in so many ways, not only for creating an atmosphere, but to add colour and structure to the decor. Hang a cool light fitting like this funky red design to inject colour into the space.

Simple upholstery There’s no need to limit colourful textiles to chairs or curtains – a headboard upholstered in either one colour or divided into blocks can work wonders in a plain bedroom. Use plain white bedding so it stands out and finish off with a throw in a matching shade.

Line of tiles Add a pop of colour to your plain white bathroom with some funky tiles. Why not go colour crazy and invest in some bright towels to match?

Statement chair Pick an eye catching design and go for a statement armchair to create the wow factor. Perfect if you want to freshen up a neutral scheme with a bit of colour.

Paint your shelves Make alcove shelving stand out and paint in a vibrant shade. Pick out accessories in similar colours to tie the whole look together.
