Mix it up with a rainbow room

I am in a bright and colourful mood today and so it is the ideal time to do a post with some images of bright and colourful rooms. I always like a splash of colour, especially against a crisp bright white background. So here are some beautiful interiors inspired by the colours of the rainbow.

Grey and white is quite a delight

Grey can be seen by many as a very dull colour. I think if used well it can be a very bright and sometimes even a warm colour. I love the mix of white and grey together making a room appear fresh but not at all cold. Here are some delightful examples.

Find some wool and start knitting your furniture

I am in the process of knitting a cushion cover just now. It took me a while to remember what to do and a few attempts to get the stitch count correct but I am now well on the way. I am sticking to a simple cushion cover as I haven't knitted since I was a kid. There are some fantastic knitted interiors and homewares out there - something for me to aspire to.

Turn your home office into a haven

I only started working from home a couple of months ago and I am still trying to organize my home office and make it an inspiring place to work. You spend the majority of your time at your desk if you do work from home and so you want to make it a place that you enjoy spending your time.


Here are some fantastic examples. I think I need to start tidying and organizing and then I can get creative.

Look out your old photos and display them in a new way

I have boxes of old photos in the back of a drawer that I go through occasionally when I have a few hours to spare. It is amazing how many past events and activities that I have forgotten about until I look through this box to kick start my memories.


There are some fantastic ideas for displaying photos, so dig out your old pics and put them on display - I'm going to.

Reclaimed wood adds a touch of character and class

My favorite class in school was woodwork. I haven't done any for a long time and would love to do course to refresh my memory. Reclaimed wood is a beautiful material with imperfections that show that the material has had a former life. There are some wonderful interiors and furniture pieces that showcase reclaimed wood in all of its glory.

A pinch of purple can add to your place

My best friend absolutely loves purple. If I am struggling for a gift, I can be guaranteed that if I give her something purple she will be more than happy. I do occasionally mix it up and give her something in a different hue!


A splash of purple can add some excitement into a room through accessories or flowers. Here are some lovely purple images to inspire - not all interiors but beautiful all the same.
