How to Decorate with Colour
living in colour
Colour is the quickest way to bring your space to life and express your style, whether you like a little or a lot. Take a cue from UK-based textile designer Margo Selby, known for her bold use of colour and geometric patterns. Here’s how to embrace colour - from a small splash to a head-first dive.
“I always like a really strong pop of something bright.”
Designed in Margo’s Whitstable studio, her West Elm collection is handcrafted by artisan weavers in India, bridging traditional craft techniques and a distinctly modern aesthetic. The unifying thread through her work? Graphic geometric and high-contrast colours, in doses large and small.

Avoid making every accent the same colour. To create dimension without going colour crazy,
choose a multicoloured rug or pillow you love, then pull out 2-3 colours from that pattern to serve as your palette.
2. From a splashy footstool to an armchair or bedside table, colourful furniture kicks your style game up a notch.

Dusty pink, navy blue, wasabi green - these are the new neutrals that play well with others.
They add an unmissable pop without totally stealing the show.
3. Feeling colour confident? A coat of paint on a door, accent wall or all-out room immediately emboldens neutral furniture.
go all out with paint
Before you paint wall-to-wall, tape up swatches and paint a test section to see how the colour looks in your space.
Check to see if the shade changes at different times during the day and night.
