A dash of colour

Thursday, August 18, 2011

 

Vibrant hues can not only liven up your home but your mood as well. Being surrounded by bright shades will help you stay cheerful at all times. Henna Achhpal and Rhea Dhanbhoora show you how you can make every room in your home a canvas of bright colours...
 
It’s all about colour this season, so it’s time to say goodbye to those dull beige curtains and sombre white bed sheets. Add some fun and treat your house to a palette of bright, exuberant colours that are waiting to be mixed, matched and switched around. A lively house can instantly translate into a lively you, so colour up your home instead of leaving it safe and boring. Whether you’re bold enough to splash a little red or yellow on one of your walls or simply switch to orange curtains and a spattering of brightly coloured cushions on your sofa — a bit of colour in your home will make it look cheerful, vibrant and a lot more interesting. From a colourful bathroom mat to an attractive lampshade, we bring to you products from across the city that will help you add a splash of colour to every room in your home.

TIPS FROM EXPERTS
“Colourful murals can be used for the kid’s room based on their favourite sport or cartoon character. Sculptures of Buddha or abstract paintings work well for the living room. In the dining room, colourful upholstery for the chairs is a good option. Sculptural lamps make interesting fixtures. However, the amount of lighting in a room makes a huge difference to the atmosphere.”
— Mitali Bajaj, Head of Dr.Art+Design
 
“Adding colour is the ideal way to brighten up a room. From Portside Cafe, I recommend ‘Chaudvi ka Chand’ bed. For your dressing room, you could pick the ‘Balli Maran Dresser’. Then we have the ‘Mehfil E Bahar’ coffee table designed to uplift and change the mood of any living room.”
— Bobby Aggarwal, Founder and Designer, Portside Cafe
 
“A contrasted bedspread and cushion arrangement can liven up a room while vases, candles, rugs and lamp shades add depth. Children’s rooms can do with colourful stickers and stuffed toys. An organised and colourful display of toiletry add variety to the bathroom. Co-ordinated curtain drapes, photos and paintings are small additions that create a more colourful living room.”
— Dimple Kohli, Furniture Designer, Qboid Design House
