Red and sea green should be part of fashionable home

If you are looking to do up your home and give it a brand new look this spring, you may already be wondering what colours are currently in vogue.

Luckily for you, interior designer Danielle Proud has offered some handy hints and tips on how to instruct a decorator to give fresh impetus to a home’s decor at this time. She said that one of the best ways to make an abode welcoming and warm is to opt for bright colours, possibly a lot more eye-catching than you would normally consider. It is possible to achieve this through adding throws, cushions and other accessories, but it is also imperative to paint at least one wall in your new shade.

Ms Proud went on to recommend certain shades she believes will have the desired impact in various parts of the home. For instance, her big tip for the living area or dining room is red. “Red is really good if you want interaction and you want to promote conversation, so for a dining room or a living room for example red is perfect,” she stated. However, the advice is very different when you move to the bedroom. Here, it is sea green and mellow blue that are the tones of choice.

Ms Proud’s tips to focus on living areas and bedrooms contrasts slightly to that of Graham Lock, director and co-founder of, who said recently that it is worth smartening up an entrance hall – particularly if you wish to sell the property in question. But that has not deterred the interior designer, who added that another key to excellent results in the modern day is personal touches. She asserted that making a house your own is a must if you are to make it as stylish as possible and fully enjoy your time living there.
