How To Add Colour To Your Home (Even If You Are Renting)

July 13, 2016

Adding colour to your home space is really simple, but sometimes it’s hard to work out where to begin. Especially if like me you live in a rented apartment. There are various ways you can add a pop of colour, very simply and cost effectively too.

Here are 5 simple ways to add colour into your home interior.

Decorate The Walls

This might sound easy and in your home it could very well be, but in rented accommodation it’s not like you can just get your pot of paint out. So an alternative is removable wallpaper. This is also great if you are indecisive or get bored easily, as you can easily peel it off. Etsy have some fantastic offerings or if you aren’t into covering a whole wall, then wall stickers can also be fun, are a good talking point and will add a pop of colour to a plain wall. I love this large tree and flower sticker £79.99 from In-Spaces.

Colour Pop Blinds

Don’t overlook your blinds, they don’t have to be boring. Direct Blinds have these colour pop blinds in many different colours from purples to yellow to orange. They will instantly lift a room and are made to measure. Starting from £139.95.

Cushions & Throws

Adding colour is much easier through accessories. Cushions can instantly lift the space in your living room area and sofa. They don’t have to match anything else in the room unless your matching colours. For a simple pop of colour go for a block colour. Or if you are feeling more adventurous go for a geometric print like this one from Andshine £14.50. The same goes for throws, a coloured throw will lift a sofa straight away.


Storage boxes don’t always have to be white, go for coloured boxes instead. I have a lot of old Molton Brown boxes which I use for storage space on my desk, at the moment I am using the yellow ones from the Orange & Bergamot fragrance. So look out for things you can use before you throw them away. Another fun thing to do is paint a set of drawers, add a few fun handles and you have an upcycled set of colourful drawers. If you can’t face the DIY I love these sets of drawers from Oliver Bonas who also just happen to have these gorgeous coloured storage cases and colourful stacking shelves too. Can you tell I am obsessed with their homeware at the moment?

Shower Curtain

One of the easiest ways to add colour into your bathroom is your shower curtain. Too many times when I go to someone’s house and it’s just the standard white shower curtain. Mix it up a little and have fun in the shower with a bright coloured shower curtain. Sure to bring a smile to your face in the mornings, even on Mondays. Check out Habitat and Anthropologie (shown below) for some really colourful options.

I hope this have given you some inspiration to add a pop of colour.
