Renter-Friendly Ways to Add Colour to Your Home

Are you looking for ways to add colour to your home? More and more people are breaking away from the minimalistic, neutral trends and instead choosing to inject some joyful shades into their homes. Having a space that reflects your own personality can bring joy to your daily life, so why not create a home that you love? We know that when you are renting you can be limited in the ways you can decorate. But that doesn't mean you have to miss out! With some creative thinking, you can easily add some splashes of colour to your home and keep your landlord happy. So although you can't replace the carpets, paint the walls or revamp the kitchen, you'd be surprised just how easy it is to create a space you really love, even when surrounded by all white walls. Here are some ideas for cozy, colourful homewares that are sure to elevate your rented home...


Colourful Plant Pots

Plants are a fantastic way to bring a little colour into your rented home. There are so many houseplants to choose from in a wide range of vibrant shades. What's more, adding something living to your home is a great way to breathe some life into the space. Another great opportunity to add some colour to your space is with plant pots! We love to pop our plants into colourful woven baskets, as this not only adds colour but also texture to a space. Our Kenyan Kiondo baskets are available in a huge range of colours, shapes and sizes, so you are sure to find one that's perfect for your home. You can place your houseplants wherever you like around your home, we particularly love to style them in groups. Why not add another splash of colour and a little height to your plant display with our handmade animal stools? Perfect for elevating your favourite plant and it can even double up as a side table for your cup of tea. 


Bright Lighting

Lighting is essential for setting the right atmosphere in your home. Changing up the light shades in your rented space is a quick and easy way to elevate a room. Light shades make a large impact, and can be a brilliant centrepiece to an otherwise modestly decorated space. Choosing a bold, patterned light is a great way to make a statement and instantly inject some colour. Our Indian paper light shades come in a variety of colours and styles that are ideal for adding a splash of colour. You could also add some colourful candles to your home to create ambience and bring in some different hues. Display them in a sculptural candle holder, like our brass or soapstone ones.


Bold Textiles

Whether you choose colourful bed sheets, bold curtains or vibrant cushion covers, soft furnishings are one of the easiest ways to add large areas of colour and pattern into your rented home. If you have a floor that you don't love, try covering it with a colourful rug that better suits your tastes. We have an array of vibrant rugs, all handmade across Africa and India. Bedroom feeling a bit bland? Invest in a bright quilt to help bring colour and pattern into your home. Our handmade quilts are not only an excellent way to introduce some more colour, they are also a brilliantly adaptable piece, adding extra warmth to your bed in winter and providing the perfect lighter layer in summer. You can also liven up your second-hand sofa with quilts and cushion covers that reflect your own personal style. Be bold by mixing colours and patterns to create a look that is uniquely yours. 


Accent Pieces

The small details of your home can really help to elevate your space into something even better. These little accent pieces are vital for making your rented home feel more 'you.' Look for colourful soap dishes, placemats, coasters, storage and decorations. Our handmade Indian soap dishes are perfect for bringing some colour and fun into your bathroom. Pair with a matching or contrasting bath mat and towels to create a vibrant and bold space. Add small pops of colour around your home with our recycled paper decorations or handmade felt pom poms
