If you find you have a lot of colour around your house, pick an inexpensive piece of furniture- say a table or lamp and paint it white. It gives the room a new lease of life and really change the way it looks.

Move seating away from the walls

Bring your furniture away from the ways. It opens up the room and creates a warmer and intimate setting. There is no rule that needs to be followed when placing furniture around the room. Place them so it’s comfortable to have a nice chat with your family and friends.

Give the room a cheery accent colour

An accent colour can lift the mood of a room. If your room is all blue, add in shades of yellow for a cheery accent. If your room is all white, add in pops or red or green for a mood-boosting effect. Add accents like throws, pillows, rugs and even art work. You get a completely different room for hardly any effort.

Mix-and-match chairs

Mix and match your dining chairs for a more welcome and casual atmosphere. For best results use chairs in various colours and heights.

Paint only half the wall

This is a clever to change up the look of your room without spending a lot of time. Use two colours in the same colour range for optimum effect. Say white and grey and paint each of them in half for a streamlined look throughout the house.

 

Add colour to open shelving

Open shelving can be a  great way to show off your porcelain collection however ensure you add some accent pieces in bold shades to get a pop of colour, This works best if the rest of the room is of a neutral shade.
