In need of some savvy interior decorating ideas for the living room, bedroom or dining area? From feature walls to contemporary art, contrasting homewares to soft and subtle colour palettes, follow our guide to four fun and modern interior decorating ideas — banishing all your style nightmares!

1. Add a Hint of Colour with an Accent Wall

Bring character and charm into your home with a soft and sultry colour, like Haymes Memory. If you’re unsure about filling an entire space with this heavenly hue, go for an accent wall paired with copper and brassy highlights to create a contemporary, elegant look.

You can re-create this minimalist look by hanging a contrasting piece of art on the wall, combining it with small, detailed accessories found around the home, or visit your local op-shop and weekend markets for some eclectic inspiration.

If you’re undecided about which colour to choose for your spiffy, new feature wall, select a special object in the room — a chair, throw rug or vintage vase — and draw inspiration from that.

2. Chalk Up Your Walls

Embrace your inner creativity with Haymes Chalkboard paint. A smart interior decoration idea for a family home that will provide practicality and encourage colour and creativity.

For a flash of fun add a few vibrant pieces, like pastel-coloured coat racks, an Aztec printed rug for the floor or colourful cushions for the little ones.

3. Bring the Beach Home

For a Scandinavian-inspired, coastal style Haymes Organic 1 will breathe new life into your home. Painted onto natural, timber panelling, the clean lines and smooth finish provide an ethereal haven promising peace and relaxation.

Tie-in this all-white look with raw timber furnishings and handmade ceramics, complementing the overall beachy aesthetic.
