If you know me at all, you’ll know that colour is not my strong point. If you’ve ever been to my house, then you’ll know that whites and greys are dominant.
However, I know that I my taste is not to all, and with young children I do try to add a pop of colour throughout the house.
For me, there is a point when colour becomes too much and I really believe you have to stick to certain tones which run throughout the house. This gives your home an certain fluidity and consistency which adds to the feel and homeliness.
Too Much White
If your home is completely whited out, you run the risk of it looking too clinical. No was wants to live in a place which looks cold and doesn’t exude comfort.
I love white furniture and clean white walls along with white bedding but there comes a point when it stops looking cool and minimal and starts to look empty with no personality.
Plus, if you’ve ever had children, you’ll know that white doesn’t really mean white, more of a grubby gray which never looks the same. So save yourself the hassle and hours of cleaning and go for a colour which is child-friendly.
Now, you don’t have to go overboard but adding pops of colour throughout your home can make a huge difference.
From painting a feature wall to having a pastel sofa in an all white room, you can really make individual pieces of furniture stand out and be noticed.
Rugs are an amazing way of adding colour to a room and changing its illusional dimensions, adding comfort and overall making it look more homely.
From a large vase to a bookcase filled with colour, you can make colourful furniture the centerpiece of the room.
If you are a minimalist and want to keep colour to a minimum then this is a great way to try something new and add a little glamor to your rooms.
A great way to add colour to your room is with live greenery.
Plans come in all shapes, sizes and colours, so whether you’re looking to bring the outdoors in then this is the best way to do so.
From fresh flowers on your dining table, pink lilies are by favorite, to an Areca Palm which looks utterly delightful, there are many ways you can bring life into your home.
From living room’s to bathrooms and bedrooms, feature walls can appear anywhere in your home.
I would always suggest sticking to more neutral tones throughout the house or at least following a pallet which can easy been rcognised.
I’m not a fan of garish colours and like to stick to pastels which are easy on the eye such as duck egg, blues, and even browns.
Adding a feature wall can transform each room in your home and increase its size tenfold, so play with some colours, don’t be shy and remember it can easily be changed.
