Bright Ideas for your home - title

 

As the days lighten and spring’s colourful display begins to pop up all around (yes, we’re talking about you daffodils!) so too comes a wish to freshen up our homes and bring some of that ‘spring zing’ indoors.

So, without further ado, here’s our three quick tips to help you bring brights into your home:

 

Bright patterned cushions

1. Pigments and patterns

To use colour confidently at home, don’t be afraid to mix and match different stripes, spots, patterns and prints amongst a limited palette of colours. Keep it simple to create a playful but harmonious look.

Pick three colours – two neutral and one brighter colour as an accent.

2. Picture-perfect palettes

Neutral walls come alive when paired with bright artwork hung in gilt frames. Similarly a brightly painted wall can really sing when paired with monochromatic prints or photography in simple frames. Ease in to this look by framing your black and white photos in jewel coloured frames.

 

Brightly painted furniture

3. Tinted timber

Upcycle tired or dated looking furniture at home by painting it. Whether you want a bold, contemporary colour block feel or a more soft, distressed country feel you can give your furnishings a new lease of life with colour.

Be bold. Try painting drawers in different shades to the cabinet frame or using a contrasting colour as an undercoat on a distressed piece so that it peeks through for a subtle two-tone effect.
