If your walls are of a neutral tone, then it is time to add a splash of colour to your home. The trend for this year is bright, bright, bright, too much to handle, not to worry, this year there are soft pastels with modern overtones, still bringing in the colour but with a more muted effect. You can even blend the bright and muted with patterns. Pattern is really big this year, from tribal prints to eclectic mismatch fabric patterns, seen adorning upholstered armchairs’ and pouffe’s.
As mentioned in previous posts, the colour can come from contemporary art, even art of your own making, this colour trend screams individuality. Gone are the sterile rooms, it is now time to integrate everything you love, if you room looks a little cluttered, add a frame free mirror to give the illusion of space. If your pastels are making your home more little girls bedroom than boudoir, paint the walls white, to add a grown up element. If pattern is invading every corner of your home, open up the space with larger and plainer pieces of furniture, such as white wardrobes or a cream sofa.
Colouring your home is about putting your stamp on it, with less of us moving into new homes at the moment, we can afford to personalise the one we live in, the one we call home.
