Colours in a room can have a great impact on your mood. According to Emily Henderson, a leading interior stylist, if a room has pops of colours that are in contrast with the room’s base colour, then that vibrancy will make you feel more energetic. The trick is to not go overboard and use small elements to add dashes of colour. Here’s our pick of the top 5 elements you can use to add that splash of colour.


1. Cushions

Cushions are a great way of bringing about contrast in a room; besides colour they can also add pattern and texture. If you have a bright room, go for dark-coloured cushions such as deep blues, or vice-versa if you have a room that’s on the darker side. What we really love about cushions is that you can refresh them frequently to instantly give your space a fresh new look.

2. Flowers

There isn’t anything comparable to the pop of colour a bouquet of flowers can add. While natural flowers look the best, they're hard to maintain, so faux florals are more cost- and effort-effective. These days you can find faux floral sticks that look as good as the real ones. We especially like lilies, peonies and carnations for their beautiful colours.

3. A Painting

A bright painting can do wonders to elevating your mood. You don’t need to spend a bomb on getting a Monet or a Van Gogh, instead, look at sourcing art from upcoming artists (or, if you're so inclined, get your own canvas and try your hand at being an artist!)

4. Décor Pieces

Use colourful accessories that reflect your personal style. Vases, candles, sculptures, photo-frames, posters, bookends, the choice is practically unlimited. Just make sure the colours complement your space. (P.S. if you love candles, make sure you check out our stunning candle-ware collection)

5. Furniture

This one's a bit tricky. Furniture is more permanent than other décor objects, so you don’t want to get stuck with something that will become an eyesore after some time. Instead, create a moodboard with your room's current base and accent colours, and place pictures of different furniture pieces on it to see a sense of how it would look with your current décor setting. If you are up for experimenting, explore pink and blue upholstered chairs or couches.
