Sarah Warwick added this to 10 Easy Ways to Sneak Colour Past Colour Phobics22 August 2017

Flirt with colourHere’s another way to introduce colour without making changes to the major elements of a room scheme: we’re talking wall and floorcoverings, as well as furniture. Here, orange cushions on the sofas bring a warm accent to an all-neutral living room, and the shade is repeated in the interior of the pendant lampshade. It’s colour, but at a level where even the most colour-averse decorator can surely live with?If this is your chosen way to satisfy a colour craving, you could alternatively opt for a lampshade or lamp base in your chosen accent shade, add in a throw, pick the colour up in a rug, or perhaps even in the window treatment.

Cut pile rugsCut pile is created when the loops that result from weaving are cut to the same height and allowed to slightly tuft. The types of cut pile rugs available include:• Saxony pile rugs, which have a deep pile, making them feel soft and luxurious. “The fibres are heat set, so they don’t untwist, but, due to the length of the fibres, they can start to look a little flat in high-traffic areas,” Lorna says. • Velvet pile rugs, which have a smooth, luxurious finish, rather like suede. “These are perfect for the bedroom, although they’re tough enough for other rooms, too,” Lorna says. • Shag pile rugs, which have an extra-long cut pile, making them feel wonderful underfoot. “These rugs are best used in occasion spaces, as they can be trickier to clean and maintain,” Lorna says.

Cluster a series of artworks togetherIf you love a particular artist and gather several pieces, they can look great hung together. You could opt for a randomly hung gallery wall, or bring a little order in neat rows, as in this room.

Shake things up in the loungeIf you’re not much of a risk taker and fear that bright colours will disrupt your neutral kingdom of calm, dip a toe in the paint pot with some contrasting scatter cushions. Small little things but they’ll make that sofa instantly more appealing. Explore ways to complement your new addition – look closely above and you’ll notice a hint of orange in the interior of the lampshade. A wink rather than a nudge.
