With endless ideas, colours and inspiration coming from all directions, it can be easy to revert to neutral, or be swayed by interior trends. At Roomie there is little more we love than a well thought out colour palette.
Don’t rush colour decisions in larger investment pieces. If you are nervous about using strong statements, bring them in gradually through smaller items. Look for not just colour but also how texture and light affects colour.
Buy second-hand. It’s a risk free way of adding colour, look for tapastries, cushions, curtains and upcycle to suit your home.
Paint Paint Paint. Colour block wall sections, update furniture, or create your own canvas art. It’s all about experimenting, once you start its difficult to stop. Don’t just focus on colour, but contrasts of dark and light as well.
Have fun. Exploring colour, even through a more neutral palette, makes way for a personalised and un-boring home, our favourite kind.
