Banish black, get rid of grey and magnolia… Well, let’s not even discuss that. Adding colour to your home cheers up even the smallest of spaces. How to get started? Interiors expert extraordinaire Will Taylor’s Bright Bazaar features a wide range of simple ideas to give your interior the wow factor and show your personality. Let’s start with mixing up colours, fabrics and patterns, shall we?
Choosing colour palettes and finding tones that work together, Taylor demonstrates that “colour is your friend”, and it’s a fantastic way of making a statement and adding a little style to your home. Why not try simple, quick fixes such as accent cushions, a cheerful runner rug or a patterned lampshade?
Think about using size, scale and texture along with colour to make an impact with interiors accessories such as pictures, flowers, vases and ornaments. It’s a lovely way of showcasing souvenirs and memories too.
Maybe you’re feeling “colour confident” but unsure where to find inspiration. Taylor’s tip? Time to get out and about and go for a walk! Interiors magazines or Pinterest are also good places to start – why not create a moodboard of your favourite colours?
Pops of colour in monochrome interiors instantly liven things up and make black and white a little more playful. Introduce a few new things gradually, live with them for two or three days and see how you like them.
Bright Bazaar also features DIY projects making over vintage furniture pieces with a lick of paint or adding some stylish wallpaper, plus a range of colour palettes showing you tones that work together. Packed with photographs and clever tips, it’s an inspiring, engaging read. Well then, what are you waiting for?
