Tired of walking into the same boring cubicle everyday at the office? Want a new look for your house but don’t know where to start? Here are some fun, easy and simple ways to spruce up your home or office space and make it colourful and unique!
Start with the small things, if you have bare sofas and you want to go for a colourful, fun look then add some small cushions, pillows and maybe some matching curtains. You could colour code it according to the colour of your sofas or create a complete contrast by choosing bright colours like reds, yellows, pink, or even tie dye printed cushions.
Muted earthy colours, browns and greens set a soothing tone and look great as small cushions or rugs or simply colours for photo frames that you can use to accessorize your office.
If you’re looking for something a little more chic and classy, then select colours like white, beige, egg-shell white and greys as the colour for your furniture, cushions and walls. This gives it a very minimalistic classy look. To spruce things up a bit you could keep a large indoor plant to add some green to the room. Small potted indoor plants make a cute accessory to your desk at work, select a pot or vase of your favourite shade or even something painted by you to add a little colour to your day at work.
Rustic and antique furniture and artefacts have always been a popular choice for home decor. Select an antique candle stand or small vases and items that go with the theme of your room. Bronze or gold look great when contrasted with blues or blacks. Try not to crowd your room with too many antique pieces; just a few small ones really make a difference to the room.
You don’t have to buy new things to re-decorate your home or office space, in fact most times we have things that we would have kept at the bottom of a cupboards or at the back of the storeroom. Old saree pieces make amazing cushion covers, old paintings that have been stored away can be re framed and hung, vases can be cleaned up and repainted with a colour of your choice. So many possibilities to give your home a new, colourful and unique touch!
