4 ways to inject colour into your home without painting the walls

Using colour is a great way to express your style in your home. From bold and bright shades, to rich jewel tones and soft, playful pastels, there’s so much you can do with colour no matter what your personal taste is.

It’s only natural to want to shake up your interior style from time to time, but experimenting with your colour palette can feel a bit risky if you’re looking to repaint the walls - an upgrade which isn’t very easy to take back if you have second thoughts! Perhaps you’re living in a rented property which limits your options for home upgrades, or you want to update your interiors quickly and with ease.

No matter what your taste or requirements are, we’ve shared our top 4 ways you can add colour to your home without having to go all out and repaint the walls…

Bring in some plants

If you’re someone who prefers a more neutral colour palette, plants are a great starting point for injecting some colour into your home. Instead of bright tones and garish home accessories that won’t suit your more minimal aesthetic, a few plants add a bit of greenery to your home, which not only brightens up your space but also has proven mental and physical health benefits. 

From luscious leafy greens, to smaller succulents and fresh blooms, there are plenty of options when it comes to adding some greenery to your home - the more the merrier!


Hang your favourite wall art

Instead of repainting, you can easily add more colour to your space by adorning your walls with pieces of wall art. This gives you so many opportunities for adding colour and expressing your own personal style - perhaps you love a bold, graphic piece with vibrant colours, or calming nature scenes and landscapes that instantly make you feel relaxed. The options are endless!

Whether you opt for a gallery wall which follows a particular theme, or choose to hang one large piece that you love, adding wall art is a great way to mix up plain, neutral walls - especially in a large room. Browse wall art here.


Embellish with soft furnishings

Adding soft furnishings is a great way to inject a bit of colour into your home quickly and easily. From cosy cushions and throw blankets, to vibrant rugs and bed linens, there are a lot of options available when it comes to soft furnishings - regardless of your personal style and colour palette of choice. 

Jewel-toned velvets are perfect for a modern yet classic feel, while vibrant colours add a sense of fun and playfulness, creating a stylish visual statement as soon as you walk into the room. A large patterned rug with hints of colour through it is perfect for a statement piece that spreads colour across the floor - an element of the room which can often be overlooked - whereas cushions and throw blankets can add depth and personality, whether you opt for one colour or a few.

Add colourful curtains

Instead of going to the trouble of repainting an entire wall, you can easily add a pop of colour to your room with new curtains or blinds. A single solid accent colour can make a bold statement if you choose a brighter colour, whereas if you prefer a more muted tone, this can create a calming ambience in the room. Bold patterns with colours that match your existing furniture is another great way to experiment and take your colour palette one step further.
