We love summer. It’s the perfect opportunity to inject some colour into our homes. And this year we’re throwing some candy brights into the mix. Don’t fear it – embrace it.
We know it’s easy to make a mistake with bright colours, so that’s why people tend to shy away from going too bold. But there are plenty of ways to add some statement colour into your home – and still play it a bit safe.
A neutral sofa is a great opportunity to experiment with colour. Our materials like Weave Oatmeal fabric and Capri Putty Leather go perfectly with candy colours. Try dressing your pale leather sofa with some sky blue, hot pink and energetic mustard scatter cushions to give it a cheery makeover.
A great and inexpensive trick is to fill an old teapot or vase with armfuls of wild, summer flowers. They brighten up a room and – smell great. Include statement pieces that attract the eye, like a cluster of different coloured picture frames. Hung up, they create a perfect feature wall above a white leather sofa.
If you’re feeling a bit braver, try painting your skirting boards in a candy colour to add a sense of whimsy to your home. Or if you were feeling a bit creative, you could always try your hand at upcycling and repaint an old piece of furniture using bright colours.
