Sometimes we are so busy furnishing and decorating our homes in neutral colours that we forget to style our homes with a bit of colour and have some fun. Today we have five easy tips to add some colour to your living spaces for Spring.

Plants and Flowers

Adding a lush green box hedge, fern, palm or fresh flowers from the garden is one of the easiest ways to add colour to your home, and will have the greatest impact on your interior.

An accent lamp with a pop of colour will brighten any room.  If you already have a white or beige lamp, simply cover the shade in a beautiful fabric.

Cushions & Rugs

We all love to add colour and texture with cushions and rugs, so many beautiful fabrics and patterns to choose from, have some fun.  Mix your colours or stick to one or two colours and patterns.  You can read more about choosing and styling your cushions for your living room on DIY Decorator.

A beautiful canvas full of colour will always make a big impact on your wall.  An alternative solution to adding colour to your walls is with your own photography, enlarge your favourite photo image full of colour and place in a large frame with a crisp white matt.  

Bright patterned fabrics can also be framed to make a beautiful and colourful display.

Painted Furniture

Add a designer touch to your room by customising a piece of furniture such as an old dresser or chair.  A painted piece of furniture will draw the eye and make your space feel more inviting.

You can have some fun adding pops of colour to your room, a perfect project for the weekend.  What colours will you choose?
