As great as white and friends are, there’s no shame in wanting more from your home. Banish the bland with a bold colour scheme to make ears prick up and eyes widen. We’re here to tell you exactly how to do it and how to do it well. Read on for 3 ways a little colour or pattern can have a big effect.
Contrast Go big or go home! Using a single bold colour or pattern can look great, but there’s nothing better than embracing colour and going all out. Contrasting colours don’t have to overpower a space, be clever about where you place items and make sure the room hasn’t got a third bold colour as this can ruin the two colour effect. A second bright colour can even work to tone down what would’ve been a strong and overpowering shade.
Themed patterns Everybody loves a bit of pattern sometimes, but you’ve probably never seen an entire room full of the stuff. You’re missing out! Offset bright and bold colours using patterns, stripes and lines. Patterns can also be used to hide structural flaws in a space and to cover up weird or impractical areas.
No whites Odd as it may seem, adding a bunch of different colours into a room can actually have the opposite effect to making themstand out. Sometimes the last thing you want in a colourful room is to highlight all the small areas of white dotted around. Swap bright or clean whites out for creams and take special care to keep colour mixes white free- and yes, that includes bedding too!
