It’s all too easy to stick to tried-and-true neutrals and other muted tones when decorating. Shying away from colour only does your home a disservice, however – from doing up a feature wall in a single statement shade to filling a room with clashing brights to stunning effect, ingenious use of colour can truly elevate a space. And there’s no better time to experiment with vibrant, bold hues than summer, when energy levels are at an all-time high and we’re all daydreaming of the colours of the sun, sea, and our various travel adventures.
