Is your home starting to feel dull and uninspired, but you can’t face the thought of redecorating? Then give it an instant pick-me-up by simply adding a splash of colour. Here are a few examples that show how even the smallest injection of colour can improve a space.
This colourful geometric background has given what is otherwise an understated kitchen space a livelier appearance.
When adding a pop of colour to a space, you don’t have to restrict yourself to a single shade or area of a room – dropping hints of colour here and there is just as effective.
Painting a window or door frame is an excellent way to easily introduce a bright or bold colour to a room.
Against the monochrome surroundings, the bubblegum pink sofa and cushions in the picture above stand out all the more.
With the addition of the red chairs, this space has gained an extra dimension. Without them it would be rather uniform, and far less appealing to the eye.
Another quick and easy way to bring a bit of colour into your home is with artwork. In a neutral space, it’s an option that can look truly stunning.
Alternatively, a brightly coloured rug will lift a room, and at the same time create an attractive focal point.
Colour-blocking is a great way to introduce colour to a room without having to commit to painting an entire wall. It also gives you far more choice, as you don’t have to be concerned with the colour overpowering the space.
Backing your picture frames with coloured card will instantly brighten up your walls and draw the attention of whoever walks into the room.
Even the smallest splashes of colour, much like the yellow throw pillow in the room above, can make all the difference to a space.
These emerald green chairs bring a touch of luxury and elegance to what is otherwise a very plain room.
This room would be dramatic anyway, but the bright red table takes it to a whole other level.
A piece of brightly painted furniture can do wonders for a space – just find an old, unloved piece and give it a colourful makeover.
Sometimes, a little goes further than a lot. If this hallway was filled with colour, the carpeted stairs wouldn’t make nearly as much of an impact.
