To enliven a kitchen or dining room, consider a grey shade, like Sincere Brew for the walls and add a bright strip of red or yellow on the ceiling trim. For more contrast, intersperse white areas throughout your scheme. If you already love your walls, look at your table and chairs. You could dip the chair legs in a variety of colours for instant cheeriness. Ever thought of a two-tone table? Pair up some spectacular brights for a refreshing look that makes your table stand out from the crowd.
Warm, cosy living room ideas are easy when you think outside the box. Look for unusual areas to indulge in your love of Collective Coral or Party Surprise 4. Could you paint the window recess? The back of a large display shelf? Use blocking techniques for even more contrast? The smallest hit of colour can dramatically change a room’s ambience from dull and cold, to welcoming and friendly.
Kids’ bedrooms are perfect for unleashing your inner colour fanatic, so don’t hold back with your creative ideas! Two-tone walls bring visual fun and give you the chance to play with colour combos to your heart’s content. This also helps to separate areas, such as two beds, so the kids can pick their favourite for their side of the wall. Don’t be afraid to add a stripe or two of contrasting colour as well!
If you, like most of us, are prone to procrastination, doesn’t it make sense to make your home office a whole lot friendlier? Design a room that inspires you to work, with summer shades of orange, yellow or pink to give you an instant hit of energy and enthusiasm.
There’s no limit to the friendliness of bright colour schemes and, once you welcome them into your home, they’ll be cherished family members for life.
