The best way to bring colour into your home is through the use of paint. Even small areas can make this stand out. It adds drama and creativity into your lifestyle.

A velvet sofa, armchair or even table top decor. Small or large, a yellow addition to your home will make your style look complete and comfortable. Smaller pieces such as a lamps, decorative accessories and even picture frames can make such a difference to the overall feel of this space.


Autumn is the best season becasue of the colour. The warm tones you achieve from rustic accents in the kitchen and bathroom really help your home shine with culture and allows the early sunsets that stream into your home bounce off the rustic objects and bring your home to life. Adding in some gold/orange rustic decor will add glamour and elegance to your home but still keeping it modern and chic.


Are you a lover of the bold and brave? Adding some dark neutrals to your home will make your ochre colour stand out even more. It creates drama to your home and allows your space to tell a story. A simple side table is all you need to make such a difference to how you space looks. Pair with chocolate Brown & Red tones for the best look. This look works best in South Facing rooms as it will complement the dark room and help brighten it with some bold colours.


Not ready to embrace the darker trends just yet? Add some pastel accents to make this colour a more summery one. Perfect with pinks, greens and purples, this colour can transform from a dark yellow into the perfect neutral for a summery home. Create a summer mood with some white paint.
