FOR THE LOVE OF COLOUR

Lifestyle

10 June 2019

I read somewhere recently (probably on Facebook) that colour evokes feelings of happiness, optimism and energy. Who would have thought that colour would have such magic powers?

 

I love it…it’s like a splash of colour being a tonic in your life. We’ve been treated to plenty autumnal colour out there of late, with the green of tree leaves being replaced by yellow, red and orange splendor. It’s the biggest delight of autumn, so what about adding some colour magic inside our homes too. I haven’t just stuck to autumn colours in my product suggestions, however, as I’m just celebrating colour full stop… and had no trouble finding plenty of it.

Part of my job involves writing about houses and every now and then I stumble across homeowners who have had plenty of fun with paint colours on their interior walls. But, most often it’s the furnishings and other decorative pieces that add the pops of vibrancy in people’s homes. I’ve focused on that in this blog with duvet covers, couches, a bed headboard, blankets, faux flowers, a storage box (you can’t miss this one – it’s bright orange), a console, a cushion and even a kettle. I smile when looking at some of these items, and I know it’s the colour that’s responsible for that happy reaction. So, here I am wishing you a happy and colourful shopping experience.
