Decorate with every colour of the rainbow
Blue: Bold sofa
A royal blue sofa and matching drapes are a sure way to bring life to any living space. We love the traditional feel this brings to an otherwise casual seaside home.

Green: Cool country kitchen
When life hands you wood panelling, why not paint it green? We love the fresh look of this kitchen, from the walls to the gingham drapery.

Yellow: Sunny bedroom
Hits of yellow in the pillows and DIY headboard (that's leftover wallpaper, folks) adds a bit of sunny charm to this bedroom.

Pink: Sophisticated boudoir
Deep pink paint on the walls and a silky cushion cover make this room girly, but sophisticated, too.

Purple: Lavender lounge space
Purple can be a very dramatic or very soothing colour, and this lavender hue makes us want to curl up and relax with a stack of magazines.

Orange: Subtle shade
Orange can definitely be overwhelming, but when used in small amounts (like Tommy Smythe's bedroom, shown here), it can have a great impact. We love the burnt orange hue in the bedding and mirror.
