Add colour in unexpected ways

Light, neutral paint colours are the most popular choice for today’s homeowners and for good reason. They are easy to live with. But sometimes being surrounded by a sea of neutral colour can come across as a little boring. That’s when a pop of accent colour can really shake things up.

Choose an accent colour that is in the same family as the colours of your room or choose a completely new colour. Most neutral colours can be accented with almost any colour so the choices are endless.

Think about highlighting architectural details throughout your home. This can be painting the trim in your room something other than white or painting the inside of built-in bookshelves a bright colour.

Consider stepping away from the norm and painting interior doors black. Painting a complimentary colour on the ceiling is becoming a popular trend for bedrooms and painting a single piece of furniture an unexpected colour will definitely add a pop.

The key is to use an accent colour for a touch of drama that wows without overwhelming. It’s a great option for people who are a little hesitant with colour. It’s also surprising how a little colour, used cleverly, can change a room!

Making small changes with colour is a great way to make an impact and switch up the overall aesthetic of your home.
