You don’t have to commit to paint or wallpaper to add a bit of colour to a room. These tips will help you to brighten up any room quickly and easily…

Statement seating

Add a fun splash of colour with one piece of statement furniture. This could be a bold sofa or armchair, or if you’re on more of a budget, a bright rug.

Fun wall vinyls

Wall vinyls are a great way to add colour to a room without having to commit by painting. They can easily be removed too which makes them a great option if you rent your property. These confetti-style vinyls are by CasaSunshine, available on Etsy

Colourful cushions

Colourful scatter cushions really brighten up a room. You don’t have to worry about co-ordinating with cushions either, a clashy style can look like a deliberate choice. Or you could choose cushions that don’t match one another but fit to a theme, for example florals or fur.

Ferns and florals

Add a bit of colour to your room with some greenery and get the added benefit of cleaner air. Palms and succulents are really easy to keep and don’t need regular watering. Or if you’re feeling extra lazy, you can buy very realistic plastic plants online (nobody will be able to tell!)

Get bright with lighting

Brighten up a home office or living room with a bright and quirky lamp. Or, add a colourful lampshade to a ceiling light fitting. You could even change them to suit the seasons, with bright spring colours during the sunnier months and warmer shades during winter.

Colourful and cosy throws

Colourful scatter cushions are a great way to stop a room looking drab. In fact, they can even make your home stand out in online pictures when you’re trying to sell (so says Currell Senior Valuer David Gwinnutt)

Pick a theme colour

Adding touches of complimenting colours across a room can help the style to look more put together. You don’t have to over do it, perhaps just match a rug to some throw pillows, and then add in some flowers of a similar shade.
