3. Use Multiple Colours

A simple way to add colour to your home is to paint a wall with bright colours halfway up or down. Having a feature wall with bold colours can add an extra level of style and elegance to your home.

4. Use The Same Shades Of Paint

A good rule of thumb for colourful living areas is to stick to the same shades of paint. From a bright blue feature wall and lighter blue cornices to a deep navy blue door.
