Break free from boring beige

As the days get darker, rain brings down the mood and leaves begin to change colour, perhaps it’s time to brighten up our lives from the inside of our homes.

However, we’re a nation that’s more beige than bright with 44% describing their home colour scheme as neutral, with only 7% saying it’s colourful and 5% describing it as exciting – in fact, 12% would describe their own home as bland and boring.

Over two thirds (67%) of us would like to experiment with colours other than neutral shades, but we don’t know what shades will work (32%) and are afraid we’ll do it wrong (27%), according to new research from Homebase.

Aston spoke to colour consultant and author Jessica Sowerby.
