Skip the paint can and try these ideas for getting some colour into your space.
The easiest way to redecorate is with paint, but picking the perfect colour, moving furniture, priming and painting all take considerable time and effort. If you want to change the look of a room but aren’t ready to break out the paint cans and roller brushes, just incorporate splashes of colour in different ways.
Tip : These ideas can also work great for people who rent or otherwise can’t paint the walls.
If you have a dark room, add a few bright-coloured throw pillows to accent your furniture.
Group your favourite spring flowers, or scatter single stems, in bud vases around the room to infuse a little freshness and a dash of colour into your space. Just remember to dispose of them when the colour fades.
Whether you buy it from a gallery or it’s a collage of your children’s drawings, artwork adds something special to your space. Pick a piece that showcases intense colours but also works well with the existing pieces in your room.
If you’ve always had the same area rugs, now is the time to switch it up! Replace those worn rugs with newer ones in vivid patterns. Or try affixing a colourful rug on your wall to serve as a stunning tapestry.
Bookshelves aren’t just for books. Incorporate some freestanding bookshelves and use them to display a colourful collection of pottery, figurines or glassware.
