When it comes to home decorating, particularly when considering selling a property, we are often advised to steer clear of colour, rather opting for neutrals that are unnoticeable. With this comes the possibility of your home lacking character and warmth. Here are our top tips to adding colour and interest to your home without going over the top and compromising on your style.
1. Use accessories to their fullest potential. A cheap and easy way to add colour is to focus on small pieces that can be easily changed. Items such as pillows, prints and lamps can be used to add maximum impact without the need to add strong colour to the walls.
2. Use a Colour Wheel. If decorating and colour combining is not your forte, take a look at a basic colour wheel to guide you with styling your home. Picking like colours and those that contrast each other is the key to giving your home a pop of colour without making the mistake of having it look mismatched and aimless.
3. Use Texture. If you love the warmth and clean lines of neutrals, add textures and muted patterns to add interest into a space. Taupes and chocolate browns can be found in wood, knits, linens and upholstery. Think of complimentary tones rather than exactly matching pieces to each other to create a neutral look that still holds interest and detail.
