Lots of us love the idea of colour, but then go for safe options like magnolia and beige when it comes to our homes. It doesn’t have to be that way! Here’s our guide to making bright colours work throughout the home – find our top tips at a glance at the bottom.
Keep it floral
Bold colours work really well with a traditional pattern. Here, our Fabulous Flowers Vermillion fabric from our Roller blinds collection features pretty blooms with a striking red shade. The florals keep it lovely and feminine, while the colour really makes you pay attention!
Learn the art of balance
When it comes to colour, balance is key. Here, our Retro Floral Blue Roller blind sits within a neutral backdrop with pops of colour. We’ve styled vases and a striking seat to pick up on the red in the blind – but have held off picking up on the blue as well.
Pick a geometric pattern
Geometric patterns lend themselves really well to bright colours. If you’re feeling brave, try a paint effect on one wall – there are loads of helpful tutorials on the internet. Of course, we’ve got the perfect low-commitment alternative if you’re feeling a little more edgy! Bauble Blue from the blue Roman blinds range has a lovely watercolour design that will jazz up any room.
Make it the focal point
This rustic interior works so well because the sandy walls and the gorgeous beams are neutral, allowing for a real statement at this window. The bright pops of red in our Retro Leaves Red Roman blind add a twist of pattern that makes the kitchen oh-so-inviting. Try cushions, or display a bright crockery set for a smaller statement instead.
Colour blocking is a fantastic trend in both interiors and fashion, and it’s not set to go away anytime soon. The classic way to sample the style is with an accent wall, but there are loads of alternatives too. Try adding colour to a kitchen splash back, or add a pop of colour with Vertical blinds like we have here.
