Has your home decor started looking a bit blah lately? Even interior designers agree that one should invest in redecorating their house every four years as the trends keep changing and it might look outdated. If you've been thinking about revamping your home, colour-blocking is the way to go!
Pairing a few hues to make one bold statement is what colour-blocking is all about. We might have seen this trend on the runways but now it's transitioning from the fashion scene into the realm of home decor. While you might think that colour-blocking is too bold an option for you, but it’s not necessarily true. The trend can be used for creating sophisticated, fun and unique looks. To put it simply, you can go from mild to wild as the possibilities are endless.
Now, if you are liking this idea, here are six tips on transforming your house into a vibrant place that is full of life and energy.
If you’re not scared to make a dramatic statement, what about a big splash of colours on your walls? Just paint your walls with two contrasting colours and scatter similar coloured items in the room to tie it all together.
You can draw inspiration from anything for the hues! For example, a colour palette in your favourite pieces of artwork might be just enough to inspire you to use similar colour combinations on your walls.
Wanna go for something more temporary? Then this tip is definitely for you. Everything on your table doesn’t need to be matched to perfection. From your seat covers to your tablecloths and runners, you can display some colour love by using contrasting colours for each of them. Not only this, but your napkins can also be of a different colour. The only key for it to look good is arranging them in a way that they complement each other nicely.

Curtains can really make or break your decor. If you're not in the mood to replace your old curtains just yet, DIY them to go with the colour-blocking theme. Attach a fabric in a contrasting colour on the lower half of the curtain. Do remember to keep the colour of your walls neutral in this case.
This is another simple way of incorporating colour-blocking into your home. If you have plain sofas in your living room, a set of pop coloured cushions will add that brightness that you’re looking for. You can get some really cool cushions to spruce up your place at POPxo.
