Is your home lacking in excitement? Here’s how to liven things up.
- Go for a dark colour scheme
The deep and rich tones can give a sense of intimacy and splendour. If you are apprehensive about using black, choose a less intimidating hue like cobalt or navy, and pair it with plenty of luxurious fabrics to give your space an opulent feel. Then accent with metals like brass and copper so your room won’t appear too dark.
- Make a bold statement
Have your headboard act as the focal point of your bedroom. Choose one with a striking motif – there’s nothing like a peacock-inspired bedhead to add a bit of feathered whimsy to your boudoir.
- Go monochrome
Elevate your room with the sophisticated pairing of black and white. The stark contrast between the two extremes can produce a powerful impression. Here, the classy combination is done up in a wall decked out in trendy hexagonal tiles to create an arresting feature.
- A splash of colour
Your ceiling can be your feature wall too. Painting it a vibrant colour different from the rest of your walls is a great way to detail your room. This happy yellow hue conjures up fun and invites warmth to an otherwise uninteresting space.
- Decorate with typography
Typographic art is a great way to spruce up a space. A bold and bright character brings instant pizzazz, but they are many ways to decorate with typography at home. Take ownership of your room by using your initials, create a motivating space with an inspiring quote or turn a wall into a focal point with an oversized letter.
