Create A Warm Environment In Your Home With Colour


How to use colour in your home

The winter doldrums are coming to an end, and it is time to start thinking about getting your space ready for spring to brighten spirits.

Using colour to your advantage is a great way to create a bright, welcoming environment in your home.

Colourful windows & doors 

One of the best ways to get your living space ready for warmer weather is to adjust its colours. 

Think of any colours that make you think of spring, whether it’s the yellow of daffodils, the floral patterns of tulips or the oranges and reds of the returning sunshine. These colours and patterns can all be utilised in a variety of ways. 

Accent the frames on your doors or windows with warmer, sunshine colours. Also, think about unique lighting for your windowsills such as red or orange candles and fairy lights rather than white.

Choose an area in your home that will make an impact on the mood of your space, whether it’s the coffee table, the TV stand or the wall opposite of the sitting space. 

When choosing the colour scheme, focus on creating a warm, inviting space. For this time of year, we all yearn for warmer weather. In order to create this atmosphere in your home it is important to avoid cold colours such as white or cream.

If you have these colours already, try to accent them with warmer colours. For example if you have a cream TV stand, add some greenery which will allow you to accent it with yellow or orange trim to create a warmer feel to the entire space.

If you have your home decorated and you love the way it looks already, you can still make some small adjustments based on the time of year. 

A great way to do this is to accessorise your home by way of cushions, rugs and throws. Whether it’s reds for Christmas or floral hues for spring, changing your accessories to set the mood of the season can dramatically change the entire atmosphere of your space.
