Create a Colourful Home

Do you want to add some colour to your home but don’t know where to start? Interior Design is very personal, and is the perfect places to add colour to your life and allow your personality to shine!

In a colourful space, you can opt for eclectic styling as well. The eclectic style interior design decor can fall into different categories as this style picks and chooses from many other styles to create its own. Don't be afraid to choose that Boho tile and pair it with coloured tapware, as we've said, this is the perfect space to show off your personality.

Our style guide is here to give you the bathroom colour inspo that you need. Whether you’re looking for a coloured vanity, some fun paint, or just some nice colour combination ideas, we’ve got you covered!

Tips for creating a colourful home:

  • Be selective with your colour choices - choose one family and use this throughout the space to create continuity
  • Introduce a neutral paint colour in the room to offset the beautiful bright colours
  • Either fill your home with a colourful feature walls, or fill your space with colourful accessories - don’t do both, unless you’re looking for a Maximalist style!
  • Use the 7-2-1 method - Choose three shades: one neutral, one colourful (but light) and one bold. Then, divide these across the space with the ratio of 7-2-1.
  • Pair wall tiles in a deep colour, with patterned floor tiles (in the same colour family, just a different shade) for a bright and eye-catching room
  • Play with paint - it's an easy way to instantly add a punch of colour to your space

Traps to avoid:

  • Overdoing your space by using a colourful feature wall and colourful accessories
  • Don’t paint without testing the colour first - order some Tint paint samples to see what you like!
  • Don't overuse colour, unless you're looking to do a Maximalist style instead

Popular Colour Combinations

When the time comes to make your colour selections, it's important that you combine complementary colours to ensure the room flows nicely.

  • Pair dark shades of colour with metallics to create a luxurious feel (eg. charcoal and gold look great together)
  • Light, pastel colours look great paired back with light marble
  • Use calming pale blues, greens and greys to achieve a feeling of tranquillity and serenity
