Introducing Colour & Pattern

How to Introduce
Colour & Pattern
into your Home

A living room is one of the most used spaces in the home, so it’s important to choose a scheme that suits your personality and lifestyle. Creating a room that you will love for years to come needn’t be something left to the experts! When it comes down to it, it’s a matter of personal style and preference. Here are a few easy tips and tricks to get you started on introducing colour and pattern into your home.


Think about your personal taste and the ambience you wish to create. Perhaps you’re a chic, head-to-toe black wearer. Fear not! You can create a sultry, sophisticated scheme in monochrome or by using deep, smokey blues, and purples.

If you’re a colour lover the world truly is your oyster! Choose a statement sofa or armchair in a vibrant shade or bold pattern. However, if you’re colour shy, why not introduce a small pop of colour through simple accessories such as a footstool or cushions. Arlo & Jacob’s Dalloway footstool in sunny yellow is the perfect pick me up all year round. Alternatively, find a feature piece of furniture that you love, such as a sofa or armchair, and build a complementary colour scheme around it.

Pattern & Style

Stripes and checks are a subtle way to introduce some dynamism into a scheme without being overpowering - and what’s more, they look eternally chic. Our Chintz, Greenery is a delightfully botanical print that takes inspiration from classic designs. It’s got a soft, yet energetic pattern that’s perfect for a formal room.

For a more modern setting, we recommend opting for a funky geometric print. If you’re feeling bold, go for a vibrant shade to really make a statement. To be truly on-trend, there’s nothing better than a folk-inspired print.

The Finishing Touches

Introducing colourful cushions is an easy, yet effective means of tying your look together, drawing out details from elsewhere in the room. In a neutral scheme, adding bursts of colour injects fun and lifts the atmosphere, or adds a quirky dimension in an already bright scheme.
