Even if you have the most minimalist of homes, or if you’re simply scared of going too bold, there are still plenty of ways to incorporate pops of colour into your space. Not convinced? Take a look at how these 5 ways add just the right amount of colour to your home.
Paint a single wall
Against muted surroundings, you’ll find that painting just one wall of your room can pack a real visual punch. Whether in a bold hue or a light shade, these accent walls can help you change the look and feel of a room without getting into a major renovation project. Don’t limit yourself to a simple wall paint covering either, for you can explore options like a striped pattern or even utilise paint in a special finish.
Choose bright accessories
For an impactful yet non-permanent option to add colour into your space, think brightly-coloured accessories. Whether you choose floral cushions to complement a solid sofa or chair or choose to adorn a monochromatic home office with pastel stationery and accessories, these simple additions can add just the right splash of colour without visually overwhelming a space.
Frame your mind with artwork
If you prefer to keep your walls and furnishings monochromatic, introduce pops of colour into your home through colourful artwork and photography instead. Don’t be afraid to try out bold prints and mixed media collages, but be mindful that the immediate surroundings should be kept as pared down as possible so as to allow the artwork to stand out.
Put some colour underfoot
Strategically placed, a colourful rug with an interesting pattern or detail does wonders to your home in terms of colour, texture and dimension. Against your other furnishings, you can choose to get a rug in a contrasting colour, or one that ties into the overall theme of your home. Even better, an area rug can also help to hide minor dirt and debris and is also a good way to ease into more colourful decor in the future.
Go for a saturated textile
As seen in this monochromatic space with a mustard yellow nubby woven throw, a single patterned or coloured piece can make a real statement in a neutral space. These eye-catching accessories also have the ability to inject personality into a room without having to redecorate the entire room. They even offer practicality too, where they can be used for keeping cosy when watching television or reading a book.
