Using colour in your home is a great way to express your personal style, create a mood, and add visual interest to your space. Whether you prefer bold and bright hues or soft and subtle shades, there are endless ways to incorporate colour into your home.
If you’re looking to introduce pops of colour but are hesitant about committing to a bold wall colour change or purchasing larger pieces of furniture have a think about introducing some colourful accessories – they’re a really fun and creative way to refresh a space. Accessories are also easy to change and this flexibility enables you to experiment with different colour schemes and update your home's look as often as you like.
Accenting your home with colourful accessories has a variety of benefits, both aesthetic and psychological. They instantly transform the look and feel of a room by adding vibrancy to a space and let’s not forget how visually appealing they can be. They also allow you to express your personality and style – choose colours which resonate with you and reflect your individuality. Colour also has a profound effect on our mood – go for colours which positively impact your well-being. Personally, we’ve got plenty of splashes of ochre yellow dotted around our house – for me it evokes sunshine, happiness and warmth, everything I want to be surrounded by really.
So you’ve decided to inject some colour into your space – the question is which accessories should I choose? Well that really depends on your personal style, the room you're decorating and importantly budget. Here are a few of my personal favourites which won't cost the earth:
Textiles – accessorising with colourful cushions, curtains and throws is such a simple way to make a space instantly inviting. Don't be afraid to go bold with colours, prints and texture, particularly in a hallway or living room.
Greenery - if you’re looking for simple and cost-effective ways to brighten up a space, there’s no better way than bringing in some hanging plants. Not only will they give your room the wow factor - especially when teamed with our colourful plant hooks - but adding greenery has benefits which go way beyond aesthetics.
Artwork - art is a another great way to introduce colour and pattern to your home, as well as injecting some personality. I'm a big fan of vibrant vintage travel posters - if you can't afford originals then reproduction prints work well too.
Lamps & lampshades - give your interiors a vibrant boost with the addition of colourful table lamps and shades which are guaranteed to instantly brighten up a space. Our wooden wall light brackets available in an array of glorious colours are a simple way to add light and interest to a room - combine them with a striking pendant cable to really make a wall pop.
Handles & knobs - replacing existing furniture hardware with colourful handles and knobs is another super simple way to add interest to a room and won't break the bank. Our range of colourful wooden handles allow you to effortlessly upcycle a wardrobe or chest of drawers.
Adding colourful accessories can help balance the overall colour palette in a room. If your space is predominantly neutral, for example, colourful accessories can provide contrast and prevent it from feeling too bland. Don't be afraid to experiment to find what works best for your space and your personal style.
