Interior / June 19, 2018 / .
The use of colour in interior decor is extremely important for bringing personality and character to a room. Even simply adding a pop of colour can change an interior space dramatically, whether it be through a daring paint colour choice or by adding a variety of home accessories and furniture. Previous interior colour trends have seen minimalistic neutral interior colour schemes and pastel colour palettes, we have a feeling this years interior colour trends will be a lot more daring.
We are all prone to impulse buys. It is not to say that you should not buy something that you fall immediately in love with, but maybe just keep the receipt in case it does not work the way you had originally thought. Before heading to the furniture showroom, it is best to have a plan and a budget well-established. First, your rooms need to be measured. The furniture placement and size need be planned properly. Luckily, there are a lot of online room arrangement tools that are free and easy to use.
2018 is the year of the colour pop on the interiors scene and this living room completed by us last year perfectly illustrates how embracing bright colours will help you achieve a room that wows. This room really makes a statement with purposeful hits of bold colours in the deep sumptuous teal velvet on the seating, vibrant yellow lighting and splashes of pink in the accessories it creating a fresh, energised and personality packed room. The statement art above the sofa incorporating all the colours in the scheme brings cohesion and cements those colour pops!
While it is really fun to look through showrooms that are full of brand new modern furnishings, do not get carried away and buy everything at one time and one place. Doing this results in a common interior design mistake buying everything matchy, resulting in a home that lacks character. How do we add character? Slowly, over time. It can take years to have your home fully complete and fully designed.
