Not everyone has an eye for interior design or the money to  professionally decorate their home. As a result, you're stuck with plain colours and a bland, lifeless looking space. Luckily for you, there are many ways to liven up your home with colour and really make people say wow!

We've come up with some great tips on how you can make your home POP with colour.

Lamps
Lamps aren’t just for illuminating a room, they're great accent pieces that don't have to cost a fortune. Lamps like this, which you can find at one of our furniture stores, are not only bold but gorgeous, helping your space stand out. If you're into DIY, try finding one with an interesting lamp shade you can spray paint. This is an inexpensive way to play with colour in a creative and fun way.

Mirror, Mirror
Mirrors are great aesthetic pieces that can also help brighten up a room. Find a large mirror with a frame that stands out, whether it be a colour you love or just a cool design. By placing it on the wall, the surface will reflect not only the colour in the room but natural light as well.

Art
This is pretty obvious and a great way to add personality to a space. Choose colourful or interesting pieces of art to hang on the walls. If picture frames are more your thing, buy some unique frames to draw attention to the images and liven up the room.

Cozy Up with a Throw
This is such an easy way to add a pop of colour to a space. Buy a really cute colourful blanket or a throw with a solid bold design.

Pillows
Match that bold throw with some fun and colourful pillows to put on your couch or sitting chair. Don't think in solid colours only. Pillows with patterns are a great option here to add some depth to the room, too.

Rugs
Carpets are old school but rugs... rugs are timeless. If you want to go classic, choose a Persian rug. They never go out of style and are beautiful eye-catching choices for a space. For lovers of monochromatic colour themes, rugs are a smart way to break up the space. And if you prefer having bold furniture like this sofa, then a contrasting rug would be the way to go.

Paint One Wall
This one is a space game-changer. Imagine a living room with muted furniture and accessories but one of the walls is painted red. Using a bold colour on one wall can make a huge statement but you can also choose a colour that matches the theme of your space. Frankly, when you paint an accent wall, any colour you choose will make the room stand out.
