The ultimate colour guide for your home decor

*Collaborative post.

 Is your home looking a bit drab and dreary? If so, you might want to consider changing up the colour scheme to brighten up and bring some life back into your living space. Choosing colours for your interior can be a difficult job, as you need to make sure you pick the right shades to maximise and enhance the look of your home.

To enable you to select the right colour palettes, you should take a look at this guide which will make the decorating process much easier.

 

Neutral shades

One of the most popular interior palettes is definitely neutral shades like white, beige, ivory, nude, grey and more, which are popularly used in plenty of modern spaces. These colours can be used to decorate the whole room, or as base layers to compliment brighter shades. You can use variations of these colours in any room of your home, although the living room and dining room are more synonymous with these shades, as these areas of the house are seen as neutral ground.

Property companies like RW Invest have embraced the all-natural look in their offerings by using light-coloured neutrals like white and ivory to create contemporary style apartments. These attract a wide range of tenants, although they are especially popular with young professionals who prefer modern and airy city-centre apartments.

 

 

 

Pastel palettes

If you want to lighten up your space, especially now the summer months are in play, you should take a look at soft some pastel colours. This could include hues of baby blue, light pink, peach, lime and more. You could start small by introducing pastel-coloured cushions or ornaments, which will add character to any room in your home.

Pastel shades work well in rooms like the kitchen or bathroom, where you can update your neutral-style cabinets with blue and green hues. This is not only a great way to enhance your property but is also a much more eco-friendly solution, as you can avoid throwing out a good piece of furniture. By using the colours, you can also make even the smallest kitchen look spacious, which is every homeowner’s dream. This is also a great way to update a more traditional style kitchen, as the lighter palettes will create a more modern feel.

Bold hues

 If you really want to brighten up your home, you should go bold with shades of purple, yellow, or even red. These colours are perfect for rented apartments which tend to look like show homes, as adding a brighter shade will make your home more personalised. Some landlords do not allow walls to be painted, so if this is the case, you can purchase furnishings and ornaments that will enhance even the most drab-looking room.

Using a bright colour like yellow may seem daring and should not be used in just any room, as it can appear overpowering.Yellow works well in a breakfast room, where you can start your day on a high with striking decor. Try to avoid using this colour in the bedroom, as this an energising colour which may work well in the morning but not so good at night when you need a good night’s rest.
