Variety is the spice of life, and what better way to keep things interesting than to splash some colour around the place! We understand how important it is to incorporate warm, fresh and vibrant colours into your home, so let’s take a look at how to do this successfully.

Do some colours go better in certain rooms?

The answer is YES. Each room serves a different purpose, so it’s important to choose colours that enhance the area while remaining warm and inviting. For example, you probably want to avoid overly bright colours in the bedroom (unless it’s a kids room), however bright colours are fantastic for lounge and dining areas. Neutral tones work well with areas surrounded by a lot of greenery (such as a dining room opening to a garden); and bedrooms are typically enhanced by simple yet attractive colours and/or wood.

For the sake of comparison, picture a lounge area. If you’re home has a contemporary theme going, adding a contemporary lounge suite is going to enhance what is already there, as with a country theme, or even retro theme. The right colour to choose will depend on your personality, theme and the desired “effect” of your furniture.

Choosing the area to add colour to

Don’t go overboard… add colour to areas that need it! If you have a room that’s already bright and colourful, adding to that is likely to create something a little less… tasteful. Again using a lounge area as an example – a lounge that is lacking in life and colour would really benefit from a vibrant lounge suite, where a lounge that already has a lot of colour would more likely suit something a little more subtle.

Choosing the right colour and theme for your home

Your home has its own unique architecture and key focal areas – take advantage of these and find a theme that works with the existing structure as well as your own personal style. Once you’ve decided on a theme, you can have it flowing from room to room – this creates a tasteful, elegant and inspiring atmosphere. It’s no secret that certain colours impact our moods and either creates or detracts from ambience, so don’t be shy when it comes to choosing a colour that’s going to make your room pop!
