Like Sophie, work Clashing colours
For a carefree, arty look, just dollop a bold dot of paint on the wall!
Contrasting colours can be a tricky art to perfect but, done well, it can transform a space. colours give a room character and reflect your personality, so think about what you want your space to say.
Avoid using too many colours as this can make a scheme cluttered. At the same time, steer clear of having everything in matching shades – it’s about finding a balance. Take lighting into account when making colour choices. Natural light has a different impact on colour compared to artificial light, particularly on shades such as grey and white. Create moodboards with scraps of fabrics and paint samples in various hues so you can get an idea of what works together and what doesn’t.
