It’s hard to believe we’re already in autumn, but there’s no need to regret the passing of our short summer.
Bright, neon colours are fashionable and will be a tonic for the home as well as lifting your spirits by reminding you of sunny days.
So follow our mood-lifting guide to dazzling rooms.
Group objects of the same colour on a bookshelf for instant impact.
For added effect, paint shelves and the background wall in a strong contrasting shade, for example, yellow ornaments and books and a deep blue-painted wall.
If your kitchen’s looking a little drab, give it an instant pick-me-up with some brightly-coloured canisters and accessories and smart seating.
Clear up the clutter and add style to a room with units that are bold and eye-catching.
Make a work or hobby area special by zoning it in a vibrant colour shade such as orange, which is known to stimulate creativity, then kit it out with zingy storage and desk accessories that will naturally draw you to the space.
A sofa usually dominates a living room as the largest piece of furniture and it will star if it’s upholstered in a funky fabric with the rest of the backdrop neutral.
Colour’s the equivalent of make-up for rooms.
Instead of blusher and eye shadow, think of adding little pops of colour in decorative accessories to make rooms instantly visually appealing.
