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.
Have you ever painted a room in a bold, bodacious color? If you did, how long did it take for you to pick up the paint brush again, covering the once-loved color with something more calm? Another example of bold-gone-wrong— the bright red couch that you thought you just had to have. Fast-forward three years later—yeah, you are pretty sick of it now are not you?
Kitchens are busy places, both practically and visually, so when designing one for real life, not just Instagram, try to inject colour in places it can easily be changed up when the mood takes me. These neon yellow handles are laminate pieces cut to size then sprayed with car paint and glued in. Experimenting is a great way to find what works for you and this is an easy and inexpensive way of doing so. Another big colour trend kitchens is metal. Distressed metal, such as these old copper saucepans will make a new kitchen look less sterile and give the space a unique, luxurious feel. Combine with a copper sink and tap and your space is instantly updated.
This colour has captured the hearts of the Instagram generation and interior designers alike. Millennial Pink provides a fantastic way of introducing a feeling of serenity and fun to any space. The brilliant thing about pink is that it can be cold or warm. The more muted pinks hark back to the 1950s. They work wonderfully with other similar colours like teal and greys, which have a vintage feel to them. Hot pinks add a bit of spice to an interior and are a subtler way of adding drama to a room if red is not your thing.
