We play it pretty safe don't we? Sometimes it's nice to blend in a wee bit, but why are we so afraid of colour?
It turns out, there are more shades than black, white and grey and it's been a pretty strong trend for a wee while now: bright and bold colours and shapes have been appearing a lot more often. I think it's fair to say the tables are turning and we here at Plump & Co are jumping for joy about it.
A lot of us have avoided bright and bold colours in our interiors because home is a place of rest and relaxation. Loud colours can be off-putting and unsettling for some - but surely there is a happy medium! If you're going for a simple interior structurally then why not pop splashes of colour through your decor, like ceramics, plants, blankets, pillows, artworks and maybe a bold couch or curtains. They're easy enough to change so you're not committing to an extremely loud red wall for the next 10 years - but hey that would look pretty amazing.
Let's just have a wee look back at the amazing interiors of the past. I know for some of you these images may be horrid, but I think they're incredibly endearing and inspiring. Using more colour really does make people happier, in both fashion and at home, just like how a bright sunny day has that same effect.
