One of the biggest trends we’re going to see coming into spring is colourful lights that take centre stage. While the home interior trend of including fluro accents with soft furnishings has been around for some time now, there will be a shift in the coming months towards lights that are bold, colourful and eye-catching.
Forget subtle lighting that’s recessed into the ceiling. This trend is all about bringing your lights forward as an important decorative element in your home.
When using coloured lights in the home, it’s a good idea to select lights that are of the same colour intensity. Pale hues and tones don’t match well next to highly intense colours.
You also don’t want to overdo it with other brightly coloured accents in the room. Coloured lights work best in rooms that have relatively plain walls and floors, so they can reflect colour easily and aren’t overshadowed or clash with bold rugs or wallpaper of a completely different colour palette.
When choosing the right coloured lights to use, think about your home’s décor. Is your home inspired by industrial spaces? Or do you prefer the minimalistic, modern trend and have mostly a neutral colour palette running throughout your home? Perhaps you’ve incorporated feminine, shabby chic elements throughout? Whatever style your home’s interior is, this will have an impact on the style of coloured light you should decide to purchase.
Different rooms also require different lighting accents. So while you may want something overhead for the dining room and kitchen, you may want to focus on purchasing a suitable table lamp for your bedroom and lounge room.
Forget subtle light fixtures that blend into the background. Add a serious punch of colour to your home with colourful lighting accents that pop!
