Create an uplifting desk area, give an old chair a new lease of life with a fresh coat of paint. Pick a eye-popping shade in a hardy egg shell and paint just the chair seat and back, leaving the legs unfinished for a contrasting effect. Finish the scene with a crisp white desk and enhance the bright tone with matching desk lamp and accessories.
Colours seen in nature, such as sky blue and restful leaf green have a calming effect on us, while red is a stimulating shade and yellow is uplifting (sunshine yellow… need we say more?). The key to decorating with one colour on walls and furniture is to use different shades of the same colour together, such as a soft apple green sofa alongside emerald metal side tables. It?s also a good idea to mix textures, for example combining matt paint on walls with a sleek, glossy lamp base. Try and work your colour scheme into all areas of your living room – such as your bay windows.
Style up with wallpaper cuttings by Cover drawer fronts or alcoves with geometric wallpaper. Pick alternating patterns for each space. Cut paper to size and use an all-in-one sealer, glue and finish to secure, and refresh your living room with spring colour, with make a sofa the focal point and revive your living room with a fresh palette for spring. Paint the wall behind it in a soft pastel shade and swap old sofa cushions and throws for a new line-up in pretty co-ordinating colours.
