After a long grey winter, nothing says “spring awakening” quite like a fresh coat of paint. Give your home an instant rejuvenation with these bright, fresh colours that will transform your space. From subtle sage to bold pea green, there is something for everyone.
It is a fresh take on red. This shade is cheerful and energizing. Opt for a few well-placed accessories or a statement piece, like a corner chair or cabinet, to energize a space with neutral walls and furniture.
Versatility is what orange is all about. A toned-down shade works with just about anything. Pair it with ivory, taupe and brown for an earthy bohemian vibe, or go with bright whites and greys for a more modern feel.
It is a colour that can be tough to get just right, but this year anything goes. You will see many shades of yellow, from soft, buttery to dark, and dramatic in home decor. But we can't get enough of this happy shade; it's light, bright and perfect for rugs, bedding and accessories.
Peach was a popular colour back in the '80s and it is about to be big once again. This hue is likely to be considered a "new neutral" because it is soft, subtle and pairs well with other colours. It also casts a warm, flattering light on skin tones, so it is gorgeous on walls.
Flip the script when it comes to using this go-to neutral. Skip painting walls a warm taupe and instead opt for high-quality throw blankets, pillows and textural accessories in this earthy shade. Taupe accessories and linens work especially well in rooms with all-white or, conversely, super-dark walls.
Pea green is youthful and very grown-up all at the same time. If your budget is limited, there are plenty of gorgeous new and vintage accessories in this well-travelled colour. On the other hand, you can go all in and use it on walls or furniture to make a real statement.
Soothing, baby blue walls or accessories have a way of making a room feel clean, fresh and calm. This cool shade is ideal for more personal spaces like bedrooms and bathrooms.
