Decorating your home to make it bright and happy needn’t be expensive. Here are my 5 Top tips on how to brighten your home with colours on a budget.

I always go back to these 5 decor tricks and it works.

Tip number 1 – Colourful cushions. 

By placing a mix of colourful cushions on any sofa, will give the room an instant lift. The heart and HAPPY cushions are from Bombay Duck London.

You can buy inexpensive colourful cushions from Homesense too. Tip number 2 –  Colourful art prints.

You don’t have to go to an art gallery to buy an original oil painting or  expensive work of art. You can get a similar effect with these colourful art prints.

The 2 abstract art prints in the bottom corners are by Jessica Ford, the headphones print are by The Native State and the H Heart print is by Lorna Freytag. home with colours on a budget Here you see the colourful cushions and art prints together. Tip number 3 – Colourful flowers

I’m so pleased that Tulips are now in season. They are one of my favourite flowers and I’ve written a post on how to care for them if you are interested.

Flowers always add an instant impact of happiness to a space and a relatively inexpensive way to add colour too. How does this make you feel? Tip number 4 – A coloured vase.

I absolutely adore this blue vase from the Relae collection by Nicholai Wiig for Raawi. They come in a variety of jewel colours. Makes me feel so happy looking at this. home with colours on a budget Tip number 5- A colourful rug.

Decorating with colour is a way to defy the gloom and bring happiness into your interior home space.

The U.K at the moment is under a grey cloud, with the Brexit conflict and torrential rains.

I have decided to give my ever evolving workspace a makeover (above). Decorating with colour I was really thrilled to discover the Nidi brand via Nubie.

Nubie is an online web shop selling the most beautiful baby and children home interior furniture and decor.

As you know, I love decorating with colours. In fact, I think children brands do the latter really well.

I’ve been in need of a new desk for this space for a while.

This is Nidi’s Luce desk and pill chair which I got via Nubie. What I love about this desk, is that you can custom design it to the size and colour you desire from their options.

I opted for this yellow camomilia and kept the frame white, but couldn’t resist pale pink for the drawer. Decorating with colour The shelf on the desk is not from Nubie, but one that I got custom made.

To complete the look of the space, I’ve decorated the wall with some new artwork.

The beautiful large pastel coloured abstract art prints are by Inaluxe, all from King and Mc Gaw. The art prints from left to right, are Garden Party, Odyssey and Shindig. Decorating with colour The smaller art prints are by Hello Pea and me. All the colours here go so well together. Here, I’ve added more art prints. I think I shall fill this whole wall soon. Looking forward to showing it to you at a later date.

Have a wonderful week all and hope this decorating with colour post has sparked some sunshine and happiness where you are.

Wow! We had amazing sunshine in London this weekend as the clocks changed to Summer time.

The weather made me so happy that I wanted to reflect the outdoors inside my home too.

Firstly, what better place to style a Summer vibe than around my sunshine yellow sofa right? Secondly, I thought I’d add a new gallery wall curated from Posterlounge.

The cool thing about Posterlounge is that they have an amazing collection of artwork that suit all tastes.

You can even get your artwork in canvas, on wood, Alu-dibond or even as a wall sticker. Here are my selections close up. What do you think? The top left print is called Absolute Face by The Usual Designers, next to it is Mikado by Tracie Andrews, the yellow green one is called Planets by Okimido. decorate your home for Spring The smaller sized art prints on the bottom row are all from Okimido too. I love how the art works complement the cushions and rug so well. This is definitely one of my happy spots at home now. What do you think? Do the colours make you feel happy and optimistic. If you say yes, then my job is done.  Imagine snuggling up here with a cup of tea and a book to read.
