Hot and cool colours are competing for attention this season, with blue, red, yellow, electric purple and hot pink leading the pack.

But why choose just one colour when you can make a rainbow with colourful furniture and accessories?

The key to such a bold look is to start small – group coloured vases and bottles together until you’re happy with the combination you’ve chosen. Then start to select accessories which will help you create a fun and vibrant look which is still stylish and contemporary.

The bold red of this Multi Aperture frame draws the eye to all your favourite photos and bright paintings such as ‘In Central Park’ and ‘Moulin Rouge’ will add a splash of colour to any wall.


A plain cream or dark grey sofa can be transformed by scatter cushions in clashing tones and complementary textures such as the Savannah in cranberry and salad and the Pebble in ocean and lizard.

Bedding is another way to ease your way into the rainbow trend, and even the most colour-phobic person will love this Jericho multi bed linen with its attractive ‘painterly’ design and bold shades.

This hand-woven Razzle Dazzle Rug from Fishpools also comes in a fabulous tutti frutti design with multi-coloured fabrics creating a subtle rainbow effect.

Overhead lighting gives you the chance to make your dining table into a real showpiece of your room. We think these Arizia metal pendant lights with cables are terrific fun – try lining up lime, white and red colours for lighting with real wow factor.

Then set the table with Centro glassware in five fun shades for a look both children and adults will love.

And you can liven up any plain workspace or counter top with colourful kitchen accessories. The Joseph Joseph kitchenware collection is full of useful gadgets in technicolour, with lime green chopping boards, candy pink measuring jugs and red square colanders all making cooking that much more fun.

We particularly like this mosaic tutti frutti work surface protector which could also provide inspiration for a bold choice of tiles.


Finally, most bathrooms are predominantly white, so stacking towels in rainbow colours will make an instant impact. We love the Cult De Luxe in Rosy Pink and Light Azure, and finish the theme with some bright bathmats, whether they’re hot pink or turquoise, they’ll be bang on trend.
