Whether you’re drawn to bright colours in your interior design or you prefer to keep things neutral, a hint of bright colours can elevate a space from boring to brilliant with very little effort.

If you’re unsure, opt for accessories rather than larger, investment pieces like furniture. This way, you can swap them with the seasons, or test a splash of bright colour without having to commit.
