Ombre has been trending in the fashion and beauty world for a while and now it has worked its way into the world of decor. This ombre wall treatment gives the room a subtle hit of colour and interest. You can purchase ombre wallpaper or tackle this as a DIY project using panelling as we've done in this vignette.
Trish says inky blue is the new black for spring. This is a great colour because it works well to anchor a space and is easier to work with than black.
Mixing bold colours and vibrant hues is a great way to add energy to a room. Have fun playing with colour. Mixing a variety of bold colours can give you a very bohemian look. The best tip for achieving this look is to simply experiment!
Consider dual purpose furniture for your space. Garden stools are a great example of seating that works well indoors and out. Avoid matching sets; mixing textures adds interest and sophistication to a room.
