Color Block with Curtain Panels

Curtains are the perfect way to bring in a swatch of color without having to paint your space. If you are afraid of closing up your space with dark panels, mount them near the ceiling and let them puddle on the floor for the illusion of a longer window. This also gives a dramatic look and brings in as much color as possible.

Mix up your Cushions

Throw pillows on your sofa or bed for an easy way to bring in a rush of color to your space. Mix vibrant, solid colored pillows with patterns or different textured pillows like fluffy fur or jacquard.

Dress up your Tabletop

Your table provides the ideal canvas to mix-up a whole palette of colors and patterns. Consider table runners, place mats, napkins and centrepieces to add a whole new vibe to your space. Even a small bouquet of flowers on your dining room table and make a big difference to a lacklustre room.

Install Wall Cladding

Wall cladding is a type of decorative siding used as an instant a solution to add color and detailing to any space in your home. It’s also a great way to try out not only new colors, but also new textures and finishes like stone, brick, and even tiles that sparkle! I love the look of sparkling cladding panels from the Décor Cladding Centre – perfect for a bathroom makeover!

Slip Covers

Covering a sofa in a bright slip cover works magic to a space – not only does it bring in a big dose of color, but it also gives the feeling of a brand new sofa! Give your seating a whole new look by choosing a complementary color that works with the rest of your space but doesn’t create too much drama. If you are choosing a bold color, try to match your lampshades or ottomans with it to tie the room together.
