COLOUR This can be used to inject personality into the space and is a powerful decorating tool. Don’t be afraid to be bold with your colour choices and use it in unexpected ways. Incorporate colour as little or as much as you want to any element of the room such as doors, handles, cushions, furniture, décor and rugs.
