Easy Ways to Add Colour into Your Home

DEC 20|3 min read

From the bedroom to the study, we’ve got colourful finds across every category. Add the finishing touches to any room with seven easy ways to add colour to your interior.

Every home needs a room refresh from time to time!

If you’re wanting to breathe new life into your space without starting from scratch, or maybe you’ve just redesigned a room and need some inspo for the finishing touches, we've got the product and the know-how. Styling your home with decor and accessories is an easy and fun way to add pops of colour to spark up your space. Need to fill that empty corner? Going for a maximalist look with colour schemes and palettes? Accessorise with trendy towels or revitalise with woven rugs - we've got pieces in every colour.


Insider Tip:

Start by looking at a colour wheel, pick your base colour, then choose the colour directly across from it – this is your complementary colour – then, dive into our guide! 

Cosy cushions

When it comes to brightening up your home, accessorising with cushions is a simple way to add accent colours. Cushions are easy to swap in and out depending on your current room and furniture colour scheme. Try styling a textured coloured cushion against a smooth, mono-coloured couch or chair – we love this one for a pink and red tonal theme. Or, if you’re after a softer summery look, why not pair white and light solid-coloured cushions, like our Belgian Limoncello Vintage Washed Linen Cushion, for a breezy and airy feel.

Fabulous throws

If your bed or couch needs a pick-me-up, throw on a throw! For a stylish textured look and high-quality feel, our Malmo Linen Throws are a crowd favourite. With over 10 colours to choose from, drape a colourful linen throw across the end of your bed or couch for an instant injection of colour.

Insider Tip:

Don't be afraid to stack on the cushions! Adding multiple cushions of similar or contrasting colours can help to keep a consistent theme throughout. Try starting with two or three base colour cushions, then add one or two accent-coloured cushions to tie it all together.

Accessorise with accents

Want to spice up your space but don’t have the room? Our collection of vases and pots will add that pop of colour you’re after without creating clutter. For a beautiful glass choice that catches the light, try a translucent vase. To make more of a statement, opt for something larger and more eye-catching, like this one! Embrace the modern holiday house aesthetic with hues of blue, or alternatively, accessorise with muted pastels for a lighter look. Mix and match pots, vases and plant stands of different shapes, sizes and colours to create a colourful curated corner.

Complement with candle holders

Glass holders are ideal for adding a spot of colour to any space, as well as being useful to cradle your candles! Create a cosy nook of extra warmth with the flickering glow of a candle housed in a beautiful blue or pink hue. Available in varied sizes, colours and shapes, play around with round, short, large, tapered, and layered holders to create an abstract look.

Let the light in

Functional and fashionable, lights and lamps are the best way to brighten up a room (literally)! Whether it’s by your bedside while reading a book, or positioned on a shelf in your study, the soft glow of a lamp is an instant mood booster. Make them green with envy with our fave table light or add some crystalline class with coloured glass. Doubling as a light source and stylish decor, table lamps are small and easy to move around while adding colour to add the finishing touches to any room.

Make a statement

If you’ve got a bit more space to work with, stand out and make a coloured sofa the centrepiece of the room. Amaze with an armchair in smooth velvet forest green or make a statement with luxurious copper - style with similar-coloured cushions to really create a themed look! If you're looking to add some flair to your floor space, you can’t go wrong with rugs. Style a multi-coloured rug against a muted sofa or coffee table – we love this one.
