“I’m excited about using vibrant colours to inject personality into my new home. What else can I do to give it the wow factor?”
Almost half of movers in our recent global survey said that making a good first impression is important when it comes to their new home’s appearance.
Choosing a vibrant colour is a great way to stamp your personality on your home, but why not go one step further and create a truly personal look that has real wow factor?
We asked interior designer Gabriel Holland for some inspiring colour effects to transform your home from ordinary into something truly extraordinary, just using paint.
1) Create a beautiful blend with ombré
Ombré creates an ethereal look that works really well as a feature wall – perfect if you want to introduce several colours into your scheme without appearing too fussy.
It’s also a good way to tone down a bold shade if you’re worried about overpowering your space, particularly if it’s small.
For best results, try fresh bold colours with lots of contrast, or deeper shades that drift seamlessly into one another for a more sophisticated feel.
