How to add colour to your home this Spring

posted in: How To, Uncategorized | 0

We all need to add colour in our lives.  Colour sets the mood and the tone of the home but when it comes to decorating and adding colour, we tend to focus on the walls, leaving the interior styling and furniture as an afterthought.  Here at Scaramanga, we think when it comes to creating beautiful interiors, it pays to get creative with colour.  You’ll see from our Interior Trend 2020 Blog, we see Blues and Greens as the main headline colours for this year. While the delicate neutrals and Scandi grays will remain popular, vibrant colour is becoming a chic alternative.  So, whether you want a pop or burst here and there, or you want to pack a colourful punch, we’ve got some creative and unexpected ways to add a little more colour to your home this Spring.

Statement Colour

It takes courage to use coloured paint on our walls and it makes us gulp all the more at the prospect of owning a piece of furniture in a bold colour. Bright colours in furniture are rejuvenating – it’s unexpected and a breath of fresh air.  Scaramanga is specifically selects items that can used in many areas of your home. All with their natural knots, textures, aged paintwork and shading of the timber that’s used. No two pieces are the same, so you can be sure to own a piece of originality in your home.

Grouping Various Colours

Why choose one colour when you can have them all. Grouping of various colours can add an impactful and non-permanent pop of colour to your space. Some coloured wall cabinets may be the new gallery wall!

Subtle Colours

Why not try styling an open cabinet. Don’t let all your kitchenware sit behind closed doors, instead, let it become the star of the show.  Why not line up coloured plates on an open shelf, or stack multicoloured plates and bowls to make a pretty feature out of your kitchen storage?

Coloured Artwork

Art is not only a great way to personalize a space, it can also bring colour into a room.  You don’t need an extensive collection of fine art, simply a few coloured paintings, vintage posters or map will do. Hanging art on your walls will not only give your walls an instant pop of colour, but the paintings will add another layer of texture and dimension to your space.

Pops of Colour

Bring pops of colour into your home and make a statement with a single piece of furniture.  Painting vintage furniture is a perfect way to add new life to something old.  How about this beautiful red cupboard, with its previously blue colouring coming through?  It’s much easier and more fun than painting a whole room, and so much more stylish!
