How to Inject Colour and Style into Your Home

Make a statement in your home by using bright colours and bold decor. Despite the fact that most homeowners prefer neutral colours or whitewashed interiors, bright colours when used correctly can liven up your home. There is the misconception that painting and decorating has to be an expensive affair, and not everyone has the time and money for a complete home decor makeover. Do you know you can change the look of your room without spending a lot? When choosing colours to add to your home, go for the ones that resonate well with you. Here are some interior design ideas that will assist in injecting colour and style into your home;

Add Colourful Materials

Improve your home decor by adding a few colourful throws and cushions around the house. Cushions, blankets and throws are a more affordable way of injecting colour to your home. You have the choice of changing up colour accents in your room by moving the cushions around or changing the covers. There are a lot of cushions made from different designer fabric to choose from.
Add Colourful Materials

Paint a Feature Wall

Painting one wall can really add a pop of colour to your living room. Change the focal point of your living room without going all out with painting and decorating. A simple change in colour will give your room interest and make it a feature. We would recommend doing a test run by painting a patch on a hidden part of the wall you intend to add colour to whether bold or subtle.

Add Some Plants

Adding greenery into your living room is another way you can add colour to it. The fragrance from the plants and flowers will leave you feeling connected to mother nature while indoors. If you find live plants a tad bit too much then you can get the artificial plants that require little care, dust them off and voila! Succulents are also a great low-maintenance option, as they require little watering.

Lay Down a Rug

Lay Down a Rug
Add to your home decor by getting a colourful rug for the floor. This not only adds colour, but when placed strategically can add texture as well. A rug is a versatile accessory that can be placed on top, under or in front of anything to tie up the theme of your room. Rugs come in loads of different shapes and sizes, so you’ll be able to find something to suit any room.

Hang Artwork on the Walls

Another fabulous way to inject colour, style, and personality into your home decoration is to add artwork. A piece of artwork with vibrant colours will add a decorative touch to your living room while introducing patterns and shapes. You don’t have to go to a gallery to purchase an expensive piece of art, DIY at home with the things that are already at your disposal – colourful mats, old pieces of designer fabric, scraps of wallpaper and photos, all of which can be added to a frame with the colour of your choice. Also consider using hessian fabric to add to your DIY art pieces, as it is highly versatile and perfect for adding a rustic feel. For example, it could be used for table plans/decoration, plant pots, cushions, and more.

Remember to choose the right colour to complement the rest of your room. Take your time and look at samples and possibly go to showrooms to get more interior design ideas before you decide which colours appeal to you the most. Once you’ve chosen the right colours, you’ll notice that a few small touches such as those listed above, can take your home decoration from drab and boring to beautifully designed and homely.
