news just in: whites and brights do mix

War_Pony_2

If it’s one thing Mumma Creative has been telling me for years, it’s that brights and whites don’t mix. While this is of course true when it comes to washing your clothes (if I find one more pink shirt!) the same cannot be said for home decor.

Pops of colour against a neutral backdrop are a great way to showcase your bright accessories – be it cushions, throws, candles or other bibs and bobs – and it’s a quick and affordable way to liven up a white space if it’s veering toward Snoozeville.

The soft nature of a white palette really allows the coloured accessories to be the hero of the room and the addition of raw materials like plants, wooden chairs or brickwork grounds the space perfectly and keeps it from becoming too playful.

You know I’m all for being bold and bright when it comes to home decorating – and Lord knows I am obsessed with cushions – so take my lead and let some colourful hues play in your space this Autumn.

Shop the Look: The colourful Urban Road cushions in this feature are available on The Home website from May 31 – from $51.95
