Add rich bright accent colours to lift a neutral space. Take your living room from spring to summer by simply changing your accessories. Go for a vivid, rusty orange to bring about a cheery scheme that is sure to keep your smiling all summer long. Choosing a different accent for the finishing touches is an easy way to change the look and feel of the room.
Mint is the perfect colour to give your living space a cool, refreshing vibe. Create an informal, effortless feel by mixing it with relaxed denim blue and slate grey, then bring the whole palette to life with pops of crisp white, chartreuse and zesty lime. Make it mellower in winter by switching in accents of navy blue and soft purple.
Pick a wallpaper featuring different shades of the same colour to create a subtle but striking feature wall rather than overwhelming the space. Opting for a simple design instead of a hectic pattern will also help to soothe the scheme. To break up a papered wall, place your furniture and artwork in strategic positions around the edge of the room.
If you are willing to be brave, colour blocking can reward you with a stunning and impactful new look. Here, dark sage green walls, a Millennial pink corner sofa and and a mustard yellow armchair and cushions work together, creating a joyful and welcoming scheme that is never jarring.
