how do you feel about such bold use of colour? Is it your cup of tea?

Home-owner Carolina shares her tips for incorporating colour into the home:

Colours emphasizes your décor style, so don’t be afraid to use them.

  • Paint your wall or ceiling. It just takes a few hours and has a great effect.
  • Mark zones in your house with colours. Our turquoise floor in the kitchen demarcates the space and signals play and joy.
  • Experiment with colours. Flea market bargains can be given new life by painting them.
