Colour blocking was one of the hottest trends in fashion last spring/summer, and now it has found another life in interior design.

Injecting colour in a mostly neutral space is not only a highly effective way to add interest and jazz up a lacklustre design, it’s also dead easy to achieve – and a little goes a long way!

So how can you incorporate this trend in your space? Check out some of our favourite colour blocking ideas below:

Create a neon or other bright coloured accent wall. We came across the example below on Pinterest, originally from the décor8 blog. The unexpected bright orange wall works perfectly with the rest of the home’s muted, natural and eclectic style.


Add colour with a bright accent piece – furniture, lighting, cushions – whatever you fancy! We love the DIY orange filing cabinet (below) from the Better Homes and Gardens website.


Or this bright yellow stool, featured with our Opus stone tile, SP213 Urbus (available in the UK, USA,  Australia and NZ).


Choose a few key colours for accessories and integrate them into a mostly neutral space. We love the bold Crayola tones of the accessories below, featured with our new Knight Tile Classic Limed Oak flooring (available in the UKAustralia and NZ). Hints of lime, red and blue can be found scattered throughout the room to create a really interesting and on-trend design.
