If you want to know how to fill your home with colour, this article will help you do just that. The popular paired back Scandinavian, Japandi and Minimalism interior trends are cool and calm with neutral colour palettes. However, sometimes you want to fill your home with colour to lift your spirits. I’m going to show you how you can introduce colours from painting your walls, hanging wallpaper or adding a few home accessories.
Tips On How To Fill Your Home With Colour
If you really want to embrace colour in a big way, you can paint your walls with vibrant colours. It will make a grand statement and is not for everyone, but it will bring you immense joy. One of the trends highlighted by Crown Paints for Spring/Summer 2021 is Witty. This article’s featured image shows a clash of gorgeous colours – Enchanted Ivy and Satin Lining Flat Matt Emulsion, English Fire, Mustard Jar and Powder Blue Matt Emulsion with the Dance Fever feature wall. If you’d rather stick with a few colours, you might like the picture below showcasing red paint.

Murals are easy to apply to your wall with plenty of custom or bespoke options. The National Portrait Gallery’s historic grand gallery wall is full of fabulous colours. Choose your dimensions and the paper type, crop the picture to size and paste the wall to hang.

Wallpaper is another easy way to add a splash of colour to a room. Either paper one wall or be bold and paper the entire room. Search for multicolour floral, tropical or geometric patterns for maximum impact.

Full-length curtains in a colourful pattern can look stunning. As with the wallpaper patterns, floral tropical and geometric styles work well because they often incorporate bold colours in the design. Block colour curtains are also perfect for perking up a room.

Bedding provides an opportunity to add colour to your bedroom. Try clashing colours with the duvet cover in one block colour and the four pillowcases, each in a different colour. Or add a colourful pattern. Upholstered headboards and bed frames are another way to introduce colour into the bedroom.

If you would rather keep your walls neutral, you can add pops of colour in your living room with an art gallery wall, a vibrant cushion collection on your sofa, an assortment of decorative objects or spectacular floral displays. Fill your kitchen with bright accessories, whether that’s a toaster, kettle or mugs. Add a bright tablecloth and tableware in the dining room. Updating your bathroom colour scheme is easy with towels and bathroom accessories. Select colours that bring joy and happiness. Don’t be afraid to clash colours; they say blue and green should never be seen, but anything goes as long as you love it!
