How to introduce a pop of colour

7th May 2014
As summer approaches, we’re getting more and more hooked on hue. Colour doesn’t just look pretty, it can influence your perception of space, set the mood, and works beautifully alongside light and texture. Whether you’re looking for a small colour burst or you’re packing a full colourful punch, be inspired by our top tips and picks:

1. Accessorise, accessorise, accessorise
Adding bright cushions or a bold statement rug is a great way to add a splash of colour to a room. These Bluebellgray cushions are ideal as a focus piece; why not pick out a shade from within the print and accentuate with a plain or textured cushion of the same colour?

We also love the Bluebellgray Prussian rug - the inky blue watercolour can be teamed with the floral cushions and the ombre style is bang on-trend.

2. Drape your room in colour
We know colour can be daunting, but banish your hang-ups… and we mean that literally. Replace your old drapes with colourful curtains which will complement the natural light to brighten up the space.

The tranquil curtains from Harlequin are our top pick for those of you who are still experimenting with new shades; the way the colours ombre down the curtain will subtly introduce a colour pop without being too bold.

3. Make a statement
If you’re feeling particularly adventurous and want to introduce a dramatic change, make a statement with a feature wallpaper. The iLiv Fresco wallpaper is hand painted and will flood any room with colour, whether it’s the aqua blues of Azure, the plum tones of Damson or the sunrise hues of Burnt Orange.

If you’re more partial to patterns, the Alexandria wallpaper from The Designer’s Guild will look striking in any room and its washy watercolour look is a key trend for summer.
