Colourful interior designs push back at the neutral phenomenon that has swept through modern interiors in recent years. Beige and greige aren’t everybody’s cup of tea, particularly when the time we spend at home is becoming greatly increased with remote jobs and flexible working schemes. Living spaces that uplift and invigorate are becoming key in powering us through our days. In these two cosy modern home designs, captivating pink, blue and green decor shapes rooms that come alive under contrasting colour-blocked wall treatments, unique area rugs, colourful accent furniture, and wall art. Despite compact room dimensions, the bright accents only seem to enhance the sense of space, light and welcoming atmosphere.
