Go for striking stripes
For a quick and dramatic way to make a statement in your new home, you can’t go wrong with stripes. Consider how thick you want the lines to be and step outside your comfort zone by opting for bright colours, such as vibrant oranges and purples. Set them against a neutral background and they’ll really stand out.Try vertical stripes to create the illusion of height if your ceilings are low. Horizontal stripes will help create a sense of space, and are generally considered more playful than vertical ones.
Passion for pattern
If you’re feeling really playful, graphic diamonds or colourful spots are great for adding a designer-style feel to your scheme. Less is more with this sort of effect, so limit it to a feature wall or even a small area to make it feel like artwork. Stick to a neutral backdrop where possible to ensure your chosen pattern stands out against it.
