How to Add Colour to Your Interior Design *

*Collaborative Post.

ou’re not alone if you’re bored of having plain walls, white ornaments, and beige floors! Lots of people are searching for ways to brighten up their interior design and add a splash of colour to their homes.

Contrary to common belief, updating your interior design doesn’t need to cost a fortune and take several months of your time. You can add lots of bright colours to your decor and completely transform your home on a budget. Often, it’s the smaller touches that make the most significant impact!

Below, we’ve compiled a list of top tips that will make adding colour to your interior design quick and simple. 

Add colour with statement furniture

Colourful furniture can sometimes be intimidating because of how bold it can be. However, when used effectively, brightly-coloured furniture can capture the eye and bring the rest of your interior design together. 

Furniture of any colour can be effective as a statement piece in your home. For example, you can get a yellow velvet couch for your living room or a purple headboard behind your bed to draw people’s attention to your interior design.

Create an accent wall

Painting every wall in colour can look garish and overbearing. You can use an accent wall to incorporate colour into your home without going overboard.

To create an accent wall, you can either cover the main wall in a room with colourful paint or vibrant wallpaper. Great places to add accent walls are the wall behind your headboard in the bedroom or the wall that contains the fireplace in the living room.

Bring nature indoors

You only need to glance outside to view the many beautiful colours of nature. Nothing is more eye-catching than bright greens and brown plants or flowers with vibrant yellow, red, and purple petals. 

You can bring nature indoors by purchasing house plants or bouquets of flowers to place around your house. If you aren’t keen on looking after real plants, find artificial flowers that reflect the true colours of nature.

Lay colorful rugs down on your floors

Rugs have multiple functions. They add warmth and coziness to a room and feel soft and plush under your feet.

You can also use rugs to add a splash of colour and pattern to your decor. Whether it’s a bold one-toned rug or a funky multicoloured option, there’s a rug for every room and style. Don’t be afraid to have fun and get creative with your rug placement!

Hang colourful art on the walls

Artwork is one of the easiest ways to add colour to your interior design. There’s the option of adding one larger piece of art on your walls or combining multiple smaller pieces to create a collage.

You could even go one step further and hand your art in bright and bold frames. This is a great way to revamp your existing wall art if you don’t want to spend money on new canvases.
