Bright shades are always a popular choice for summer and this year is set to be no exception. Many people associate primary colours with children’s bedrooms, but if used in the right way, they can create a sophisticated look in your home.
From choosing a primary tone for one wall, to selecting vibrant key items of furniture, there are lots of different ways to approach the look. For instant kerb appeal, you could pick a statement shade for your front door.
No doubt many readers will remember learning about them at school, but for those who need a quick reminder, the primary colours are red, yellow and blue – which can in turn be blended to make a variety of other shades!
Of course you don’t have to go all out with your use of colour. Primary tones can also be used to brighten up a neutral design scheme. For an eclectic yet understated effect, you could mix and match accessories in different primary shades, like a yellow vase, red cushions and a blue rug for your living room.
To really make an impact at your windows though, choosing a bold block colour is best. Kirsty Martin from the Web-Blinds online team has picked out a few of her favourite primary coloured fabrics from the range:
“For a sunny look in your room – no matter what the weather is like outside – the Custard Cream offering from our cream roller blinds range is ideal. The lively yellow tone will create a cheerful effect wherever it is used in the home.
“If you’re looking for a slightly warmer option, the Poppy Field product from our red Roman blinds collection is perfect. The rich red colour will add a splash of drama to your design scheme and provide a snug and cosy impression, while the lining ensures extra insulation.
“Or if cool blue tones are more your style, look no further than Luna Blue from our blue vertical blinds range. The shade brings to mind the fresh summer sky, while a solid coating on the back of the blind helps to reduce any unwanted light. And unlike many other blackout backings, the colour of this coating matches the shade on the front of the blind.”
