Going Bold - How To Decorate With A Bold Paint Colour

If you are the adventurous type, chances are off-white and soft paint colours are not for you. Bold colours make a statement and will add instant personality to any space.

Do's and Don'ts of decorating with bold colour.

  • Do balance a darker shade on the wall with lighter furniture.
  • Do try a dramatic colour in the powder room or dining room for impact.
  • Do use a bold colour on accent or feature walls.
  • Do use bold colour above white or cream painted wainscoting.
  • Don't add too many accessories and fabric patterns -  let the colour take center stage.
  • Don't use a bold colour in every room of the house.
  • Don't be afraid to try a colour you really love.

Happy Decorating!
