Colour has an undeniable power to transform a room. Whether you want to create a tranquil oasis, a vibrant social hub or a cosy retreat, the right colour can work wonders.
But when it comes to infusing colour into your home, there’s more to consider than just the paint on the walls. One often-overlooked but incredibly impactful aspect is your choice of flooring, along with the creative use of rugs and other decorative elements.
Flooring that pops:
Let’s start with flooring. While hardwood floors and neutral carpets are timeless choices, don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone. LVT (Luxury Vinyl Tile) and carpeting is available in a plethora of colours, patterns, and textures, allowing you to infuse your personality into every inch of your space.
Imagine a deep, moody navy-blue carpet in your bedroom, creating a sense of tranquillity and luxury. Alternatively, you can opt for a cheerful, sunny yellow LVT in your kitchen to energise your mornings. Or a delightful pattern in small spaces such as the downstairs loo or utility to really brighten it up. The key is to choose a colour that resonates with your style and complements the overall theme of the room.
Rug it up:
Rugs are versatile tools for adding colour to your space. They can act as a focal point, tying together the colour scheme of a room. A bold, geometric rug in the living room can instantly transform a neutral space into an exciting conversation starter.
For a cohesive look, coordinate your rug with other elements in the room, such as throw pillows, curtains, or artwork. This creates a harmonious flow of colour throughout the space. Jacaranda Carpets, have a great range of Tencel rugs, that are not only sustainable but ooze style.
When you’ve got your flooring and rugs in place, don’t forget about the smaller decorative elements. Colourful accents like throw blankets, decorative vases, and artwork can tie everything together. Consider the colour wheel when selecting these accents. Complementary colours (those opposite each other on the wheel) can create a dynamic and visually pleasing contrast, while analogous colours (those next to each other) offer a more harmonious, soothing effect.
Remember that you can always experiment with different shades, patterns, and textures to find the perfect colour balance for your room. Don’t be afraid to take risks and let your creativity shine!
So the colour way is UP when it comes to transforming your living spaces. Flooring, whether it’s carpet or LVT, along with rugs and carefully selected decorative elements, can help you achieve the perfect colour balance.
Go ahead, you have permission to paint your world with the hues that make you feel at home and create a space that’s uniquely yours.
