5 Ways to Add Colour to Your Home Through Styling

add colour to your home through styling

Is your home feeling a little dull? Inject some colour and life into it! There are a range of ways to do this, but we believe styling is one of the most effective methods to achieve a colourful look.

To give you some inspiration, we have put together a list of ways you can add colour to your home through property styling.


This might seem like an obvious suggestion, but cushions can be an absolute game-changer. Have you ever noticed the way they can alter the aesthetic of an entire room? Cushions are the perfect option for people wanting to experiment with colour but are nervous about going too bold. They add a small splash of colour without being overwhelming and can easily be swapped if you change your mind.


A coloured rug can change the feel of a room, but it’s essential that you choose the right one. Consider the size of the space and the desired theme for the room. You should also identify whether there is good or poor lighting in the room as this may impact how the rug looks when placed in your home. To select your rug, think about the furniture in the room and what will complement it. If you have solid-coloured furniture, a patterned rug might provide some much-needed texture. If the space has been styled in neutral tones, choose a coloured rug that will provide some brightness while also matching seamlessly with the existing design. 


Curtains are another great way to add colour. Simply remove the old shades and replace them with something brighter – your whole room will look fresh! An excellent tip for choosing the right curtains is to continue the colour theme of the room. You don’t want them to contrast too much as they will look out of place. Instead, use a different shade of the colour that has been utilized in the space.


Many people overlook light fixtures, not realising how big of an impact they can have on the visual design of a room. By adding a few statement lighting pieces, you can alter the overall vibe of a space without touching anything else. To choose the right light fixtures for your space, consider the design theme. You don’t want to install slick, modern fixtures if your overall decor is rustic country. While you want them to stand out and make a statement, they need to align with the overall look.


The handy bookshelf. It’s become so much more than a convenient way to store books. Today, it is one of the ultimate styling tools. With a range of designs available on the market, you are guaranteed to find one that suits your space. Now if you are using it to add colour, you have two options. You can find a bookshelf that is in your desired shade to brighten up your space, or you can use a neutral bookshelf and add coloured books and items to it. Both are highly effective, so pick what suits your tastes and space! If all this seems too complicated for you, Pabs can help.
