How to love colour in your home.

I am an absolute fan of colour. I love to live with colour and wear it too. For me, designing a home is all about personalising a space and colour is a great way to achieve this. It doesn't have to be big, bold statements of red or yellow, in fact, my favourite colour is indigo which happens to connect sublimely with white spaces and leather and timber finishes (my favourite!).

If you're looking to inject some hues into your home, here's a few tips on how-to introduce colour slowly but surely...

1 // Use white as your blank canvas. The perfect foundation for any colour to pop against!

2 // Choose neutral tones for all your major furniture pieces. To ensure your space remains visually interesting, mix up your selection of materials like wool, leather and timber.

3 // Avoid large amounts of bold, block colours. Introduce colour subtly either through patterns or restrain your palette to one or two shades you like. 

The beauty of accessorising in colour is that you are able to change your colour choices easily.  With a blank canvas in white and furniture pieces in neutral tones, you can safely rely on this foundation to build your platform of colour (and change it when you need to!).  

Do you use colour in your home? Are you a fan or do you prefer neutrals?
