Colours are what catch interest; they add excitement and liveliness to any given space. By getting the mix and match of colours right, you can make your home look its best.
Don’t know how to get started on decorating your home with different colours? We are here to help you out:
1. Add pops of colours with coloured throw pillows
Throw pillows are a great addition to your bedroom and living room for improving the comfort quotient; they can work wonders for adding pops of colours to your rooms as well. When shopping for new throw pillows, make sure to choose from various bright colours such as yellow, orange, blue, pink, and green. Or if you already have enough already, buying pillow covers of different colours can be the right option.
2. Red for boldness
Whether you are hosting family gatherings or house parties or just meeting your friends in the evening; your living room is probably the most happening space in your house. Why not add some drama with a bold colour and liven up your space?
Take two corresponding walls of the room and paint it with a bright, dramatic colour such as Empress Rose (1D0324), Turquoise Sea (5D0283), or Moody Blue (5D1102). You can choose bright and sophisticated hues from Berger Paints.
3. Colourful artwork display
Have a budding genius or two at home? Children are the happiest when it comes to all-things colourful. When working on the decor of their personal space, avoid sticking to just one or two colours. Instead, choose variations in furniture items such as drawer, bed, and study table.
Also, you can dedicate one of the bedroom walls as a gallery to showcase their art. Paint the wall with a bright colour such as
Bright Turquoise (5D1087), Cascade Twilight (5D1143), or Ultra Violet (5A0423) to make it a focal point of the room.
4. A dash of uniqueness
Sure monochrome kitchen spaces are sophisticated, but they can come as uninspiring, especially when you spend the better half of your time in the room. Adding a dash of uniqueness can make the space more lively and fun to work in.
Choose a specific part of your kitchen, such as the cabinetry, the ceiling, or the working bay, and paint it with rich brights such as Parisian Purple (6T1332), Coral Sea (1T0223), Aqua Flip (5P0128), or Bella Mint (4P0096).
5. Go creative with showpieces
When choosing a colourful decor, do not forget about the showpieces as they add intricacy to your rooms’ overall look. Shop for cool accessories/showpieces in thrift stores to get your hands on unique ones.
Also, you can go the quirky way and make your own colourful showpieces. Take a see-through milk bottle you no longer use and clean it thoroughly. Buy a packet of colourful marbles and place them inside the bottle. You can then use the bottle as a vase for colourful flowers.
6. Radiate positivity with yellow
The colour yellow has a positive character as we relate it to the warmth and life-giving essence of the sun. Use the colour yellow in an unmistakable way in your bedroom or living room by choosing long drapes of the same colour. You can pair these with secondary lace curtains of white colour to create an airy vibe in the space.
