Top tips for infusing colour into your home interiors

1. Choose a focus piece of furniture

A single piece of furniture has the power to transform an entire room. Consider deviating from the expected and opt for a bold-coloured sofa or chair as the centrepiece. Whether it's a striking teal green against a backdrop of neutrals or a vibrant pattern that sparks joy, let your furniture set the tone for the space. If upgrading your kitchen is on the list or you're looking to add a pop of colour then we have recently just added to our collection a Sigma Brushed Velvet Bar Stool In Various Colours, including green.

2. Play with paint colours

Painting walls offers a canvas for creativity, with the flexibility to experiment and evolve. Test out swatches of colour on plain paper and observe how they interact with the natural light in your room. Don't shy away from bold choices; after all, paint can always be changed if the initial result isn't as expected.

3. Introduce colored accessories

For a subtle yet effective approach, accessorise with pops of colour. From vases and cushions to artwork and rugs, these accents inject personality and vitality into any room. Start small with accessories that can easily be switched out or layered for a dynamic look. When it comes to adding accessories sometimes you dont always need to be bold. Sometimes adding different tones of colours or textures can make a room pop. Our Bloomville and Darcy collections offer warm and earthy tones to compliment any room.
