Homes Brought Back to Life With a Touch of Colour

After years of monotonous neutral colour schemes dominating and draining the life out of minimalist interiors and living spaces in the UK we are finally seeing an injection of colour.

It seems like forever that homes have been adorned with pale pastel walls, laminate or hardwood flooring and dull or neutral suites, curtains and blinds. While many of these remain a constant in the British home a new trend has brought life back into peoples living areas. Fresh, vibrant and often bold colours are being introduced to walls, suites, curtains and rugs; a delightful contrast to the clinical backdrop of the the waning era of the 'neutral home'.

While the modern home was described as a minimalist space with neutral tones and clean edges for the past decade, this now looks dated. A focal point such as an abstract rug can modernise a room while bringing it warmth and comfort that has been lacking for so many years.

One benefit of the legacy of plain walls and light furniture is that zany, abstract patterns can be introduced without clashing with heavily patterned designs. Statement rugs are the in-thing at the moment with surreal patterns and bright, bold colours. These rugs are perfectly suited to bringing to life a room otherwise lacking in personality.

People are fed up with the lack of individuality, the show-home lifestyle became extinct with the crash of the property market. Home-owners now realise that their house is their home, a place to be enjoyed, a place to relax and be themselves. Little touches like a well positioned rug can make all the difference.

Fresh 'in-season' colours include sea-blues and turquoise greens with plums and purples becoming ever-more popular. While you will never go wrong with a neutral colour scheme they are lacking in individuality, your home should have your own personal touch, a flair of your personality and an indication of your lifestyle. A well placed rug can transform a room bringing life to your interior.
