Don’t be colour shy: Get your colour confidence back this weekend at house 2017

Embrace a vibrant palette in your home.

Bringing colour into your home, no matter how subtle, can make a huge difference and make a room that extra bit special and unique. However, choosing and coordinating colours can be a challenge! There is so much colour choice in interiors at the moment that it can overwhelm even the most stylish and colour confident.

Be creative, be brave, play around and reap the benefits – the most beautiful homes embrace uniqueness and personality.

House 2017 will be alive with colour this year from paints, flooring, tiles, carpets, rugs, furniture and accessories - you really can change a room with a simple splash of colour!

Choosing paint colours is an art in itself so think about the type of home you live in – is it an older style home or a new build? Different colours, tones and palettes will work in different homes regardless of space and light. Consider the size of the room and whether the overall look should be calm or soothing. Paint is also a very cost effective way of changing the entire feel of a room.

From shabby chic touches to designer colour combos, you’ll find it all at house 2017. Don’t miss Felix Sloan live at The Inspiration Stage for top tips on using Annie Sloan chalk paint to upcycle furniture in need of some TLC. For your perfect palette, pop by the Dulux Moda stand where the Dulux designers have created five capsule collections each featuring five paint shades that work together. Each palette features strong stables curated to deliver an interiors story that is so easy for someone to pull together themselves.  Go with some or all of the shades in a palette - use one or two paint colours and introduce the other palette colours to the room through some of the fabulous furniture or accessories at house 2017.

House 2017 has a huge array of exhibitors showcasing stunning paint colours including Moda by Dulux, Annie Sloan, Little Greene, Autentico Paints, Benjamin Moore, MRCB Paints and Paintonce.
