GET RID OF ANY WIN­TER DRAB AND BRIGHTEN UP YOUR HOME WITH A SPLASH OF COLOUR

Style Magazine - - Interior -

As the cooler win­ter months make their pres­ence known things around the house can ap­pear a bit plain, but that cer­tainly should not be a re­flec­tion of the way you have to feel.

There are a whole heap of easy ways to make your home a warm and bright place this win­ter, even if you’re work­ing to a bud­get.

Whether you’re look­ing to jazz up the bed­room, lounge room, liv­ing area or the kitchen, there are a lot of op­tions to make your win­ter a lit­tle sun­nier in the home.

Never fear if you have a mono­tone colour pal­ette through­out the house — it makes it even eas­ier to add some splashes of colour.

An easy op­tion is buy­ing a colour­ful throw to put over the back of the couch or the bot­tom of the bed.

Pops of pink, bright blues and citrus greens bring a sum­mery feel to the home, and aren’t too over­pow­er­ing.

They can also be found in many home­ware or manch­ester stores around the re­gion.

Pil­lows are easy as well, and can add a pop of colour al­most any­where.

For a lit­tle bit of DIY, it can be fun to paint old ob­jects you’ve put in the back of the cup­board and re­vive them for the win­ter sea­son.

Sim­i­larly, pick­ing up colour­ful or­na­ments to place through­out the house can add some spark and per­son­al­ity with­out need­ing to spend a lot of money — some re­ally great things can be found in dis­count stores and places like Kmart or Tar­get.

For some­thing a lit­tle more mas­cu­line, pow­der blue, warm oak and yel­low are colours that can be put around the house to add a spe­cial spark.

What­ever it is, it can make all the dif­fer­ence.
