On the brightside
Go for bold with a super-bright palette
Looking for an instant mood change in your home? How about a beautiful, bright living room to cheer things up? Uncompromising and attention grabbing, these zingy colours are a real design statement, delivering contemporary style alongside a healthy dose of optimism. So whether you’re mellow in yellow, pretty in pink or really feeling those blues, it’s time to turn bright… and beautiful.
Recreate the cheery look of the room above using coral and gold colours, such as these vibrant shades from Dulux
If too much bright is simply too much, take baby steps until your confidence grows. Try adding a sofa in an eye-catching shade or paint an alcove a zingy hue and see where you end up
Enough is enough
So you don’t feel like you’ve stepped into a kaleidoscope, make sure to offset bold, bright colours with wooden floors or neutral walls for contrast
The secret to living with brights is confidence! Choose one element as your focal point, then build the rest of your colourful look around it, using complementary or clashing shades depending on how brave you’re feeling
