Liven up your interior by making a few simple changes and turning your space into somewhere that’s light, bright and good for the soul.
The power of natural light, sunshine and brightness does wonders for our sense of wellbeing, so it’s no surprise that we all dream of having a bright and sunny home. It’s only now that the days are getting longer and we’re emerging from the dark depths of winter, that we’re reminded of what an important role light really plays in our homes and how we live in them.
Whether you prefer to introduce artificial light or if you’re lucky enough to have big windows you want to make the most of.
Pale and interesting
Neutral walls don’t have to be ‘magnolia’ anymore. Add a touch of excitement by exploring the pale colour palette. Be adventurous and mix and match using different pale and neutral hues together in one room. As pale tones are gentle on the eye, mixing them isn’t so daunting and will look very exciting.
Get it right
Consider all aspects of your room – walls, floors, ceilings and furniture all have their role to play. The basics of a white ceiling, light-coloured walls and pale floors create a clean, bright slate, ready for you to add furnishings. To maintain a look of brightness, choose furniture that appears light and airy in design. Think about the window dressings, too, and opt for something that allows in lots of daylight, like these alternating blinds that can be operated individually.
