Painting feature pieces in the house such as bookcases or a front door injects instant warmth and colour and you can always paint over if you get tired of them. If you’re scared of getting colour wrong, start with a neutral base and then add colour through layers like cushions, throws and frames. This is less likely to lead to a clashing eyesore! Decorate with things you love; it always looks more natural than following a rule book. And if you can, try to hold on to pieces to pass down. They add such charm and history to your home.
