If your home needs some cheering up, but you are struggling to know where to begin, we have some tips for how you can add a splash of colour to your decor this year.

Typically, you may shy away from brights, but crave some colour in your home, there are some clever ways you can introduce new hues with varying degrees of commitment.

Paint or recover your furniture

Painting is one creative way to breathe life into something old. You could use gloss paint, wood paint or even chalk finish paint to bring a little colour to your wooden chest of drawers, wardrobes, bedside tables, or kitchen dining set. If you have an overall colour theme you can simply paint to match or unleash your wild side with contrasting colours.

Turn your eyes to the wall

So, if you’re wanting to experiment with some colour this year, then browse around at all the beautiful options you have for your kitchen, living room, bathroom and bedroom walls. The Pantone Colour of the Year 2020, ‘Classic Blue’ is a great choice, pairing perfectly with soft pastels, crisp whites, golden yellows, leafy greens, terracotta or even orange accents.

In touch with nature

An easy way to instantly add colour is to fill your home with fresh flowers and plant. Vibrant greens of cacti and succulents are a welcomed contrast against both white and colourful walls.

Sumptuous soft furnishings

When reinventing your family living area, it is important to consider creating an accessible space for everyone to enjoy with your coffee table, seating options and rugs. Soft furnishings are a simple way to add a pop of colour to your living areas around your home.

From cosy blankets, velvet stack cushions, stylish rugs and luxurious velvet bean bags, which colour would you choose to decorate with? Mustard blue, blush pink or teal could be some trendy colours to use in 2020.
