With 2020 being pretty much the year we spent at home indoors, you probably gave a lot of thought to home DIY and improving your decor. Now’s the time to be looking ahead for a fresh start and where better than beginning at home. Get inspired by trying a new colour palette. Whether you’re a bold adventurer looking to stand out with a pop of colour, or someone who prefers to infuse warmth and comfort throughout their home, there are all sorts of ways to modernise, while staying true to your style.
Big, bold and beautiful
Bold uses of colour are a huge part of interior design trends currently, whether that’s splashes here and there, or waves of monochromatic madness. Combining deep pinks with a pop of yellow is a sure-fire winner, especially when paired with a neutral background, or go all out and make a statement by filling a room with a single colour. Deep blues or greens are an excellent way to cram a room full of character and can be paired easily with accent colours like a warm gold or a bright silver.
Neutrals don’t have to blend in
If bright colours don’t make you feel at home, there’s nothing wrong with embracing a warmer, more stable colour scheme. Creams, stones and earthy tones are a soothing canvas to paint your room on and can be accented with subtle colours if you still wanted to make a statement. Incorporating warm, neutral colours is a clean, crisp way to make your home look spacious while still being inviting and welcoming.
Pastels are perfect
You can’t go wrong with a pastel palette, especially in your living room. Paired with neutral or earthy tones, pastels can add a welcoming warmth to your home. Moving away from the cooler colour palette of the last decade, warmer pastels are clean and light, but still cosy and comforting.
Nothing beats blue
Blue certainly seems to be the dominant colour choice and there are so many ways to use it throughout your home, without it feeling tired or repetitive. From Pantone’s colour of the year, Classic Blue, to a soft grey-blue, you have so many options to choose from when incorporating this colour into your home. Blue can be used to create a serene retreat or fill a room with a bold personality of its own.
Opulent jewel tones
Perfect for a dash of opulence and flair, jewel tones are the gift that keeps on giving. Ideal as pops of colour or as the basis of a whole colour scheme, jewel tones add a touch of drama to any room. Pair them with a grey background to really make them pop!
