Using Bold Colours in Your Space
While Scandi-design still makes our hearts flutter, we also have a soft spot for homes that embrace bold, rich colours while keeping their space cohesive and sophisticated. Colour plays an important role in our lives—and interior design. It is a visual language understood all over the world. What colours we choose have significant effects on our mood and mind.
We know, adding colour can be scary. Visions of decor mishaps from the ‘80s quickly come to mind when thinking about straying too far away from our beloved neutrals. But fear not! When done strategically and with purpose, bold colours can add interest, intrigue, and life to any space.
Here are our tips for embracing brighter shades in your home.
You have to walk before you can run, so start small when injecting colour into your space. Odds are, you likely have a neutral sofa and paint colour, which are a great base to work with. From there, pick a few hues that you’re excited about and add them as accent pieces in your space – like a pillow, piece of art, or vase. Once you have introduced these accents, you’ll have a better idea of what colours you like and can then begin introducing them in bigger ways.
