7 colourful schemes with fresh and fruity palettes

Bring a room to life with these fun schemes inspired by nature's harvest

1. Blackberry

From indigo to violet, give your room a moody hue with a deep purple palette. Add a luxe look to this blackberry base with brightening pops of gold.

For a similar sofa, try the Chester, £2,500, Habitat

2. Nectarine and Kiwi

For a cocktail of colours, why not team two complimentary shades? A fresh kiwi palette is the perfect backdrop for pops of lively nectarine; add streamlined oak furniture and dainty floral patterns for a mid-century twist.

3. Orange and Peach

For the bolder palette, try this mouth-watering combination of orange and peach. Layer fuchsia pink, terracotta and nectarine for a veritable cocktail of tropical colours.

Art prints, from £14.95 each, Petra Schüßler range, King & McGaw

4. Lime

Pep up a neutral scheme with a dash of vibrant lime. Keep interest in a calming country palette with a patterned wallpaper and a range of textures, then pick out the lime notes with matching fresh flowers.

5. Watermelon

Inspired by the intricate pattern on the stump of a tree, this eye-catching wallpaper is instantly uplifting thanks to its cheery colourway. Feeling cautious? Try popping a small piece into a white frame, then team it with other patterns in the same shade for easy, do-it-yourself artworks.

Tree Circles wallpaper, £36 per roll, Scion range, Wallpaperdirect

6. Plum

Choose plum and grape shades for a plush, opulent feel; match with hints of pink for a bolder look, or pair with beige and grey for a soothing scheme.

Walls painted in Tyrian Rose matt emulsion, £35.50 for 2.5ltr, Fired Earth;
Orson three-seater sofa in Pansy Purply, £549, Made.com

7. Cherry Red

Thanks to its contrasting patterns and big-top curtain, this lipstick-hued bath is tantalisingly retro. Just add a matching shower cap for the cherry on the cake (sorry, couldn’t resist).

For a similar bath, try the Grand La Rochelle Cast Iron Bateau, £2,795, The Cast Iron Bath Company; painted in Rectory Red, Farrow & Ball
