The bright  side
In living colour

When it comes to creating a welcoming home space that makes you feel happy, healthy, energised or at peace, a little colour goes a long way.

So which colour is right for you and your space? Different shades evoke various emotions, so it all depends on how you want to feel and what colours speak to you.

If you’re wanting to embrace the bright side of life, shades of yellow bring energy, joy and optimism. When you want to feel more energised, red is a powerful statement of excitement and passion. Should tranquil vibes be your happy space, be sure to bring in vibrant blues to boost feelings of calm and control. While green evokes nature, balance and growth, orange is all about warmth, optimism and instinct.

How to use colour as your hero

Whether you’re looking to add a few pops of colour here and there throughout your home the key to style success is choosing the right hero piece that anchors your space.

A statement in soft furnishings

Sofas, armchairs and beds are all prime positions for bright, bold and beautiful pillows, cushions and soft throws in lovely natural fibres. The best part is they’re so transportable, you can shift them around to effortlessly change up your space whenever you like.

The power of paint

Paint is a great, transformative tool to create a feature wall, to brighten up a bookshelf, a study nook, home office, bathroom and even kitchen cabinetry. Using one colour throughout your home makes your space feel larger and more connected.

Artful accents and accessories

Colourful accessories and homewares really light up your rooms. The key is to choose a colour and weave it through different areas to create unity. Place a few vases or books on a shelving unit, and then put a dish or tray in the same hue on a coffee table and a lamp in a similar tone nearby.
