While a brave choice, yellow is an ideal colour for spring, representing joy and energy.

It is a great option for kitchens, due to its natural association with food. While it is thought to stimulate hunger, yellow will encourage energy and cheer throughout the whole home.

Spread happiness within your property this season with some bold décor or simple accessories. If you’re on a budget, nothing screams spring more than a bunch of daffodils – perfect for tenants to bring into their homes!


Similarly to yellow, red is a bold colour that can divide opinion. However, it is the colour of love and passion, so is perfect for stimulating the mind and body.

It is a great hue for dining rooms, as it is also thought to encourage appetite. If going all out with red is too much for you, why not incorporate the colour in small doses, such as with a new tablecloth or coasters?

Taking the leap and decorating with red can be really fun and creative, if you are brave enough to opt for a bright shade. If not, more muted tones, such as burgundy, work especially well in traditional homes.


While some shades of purple may seem slightly dark for this time of year, the fresh, varied tones of springtime flowers prove that there’s more to this colour than regal satins and luxury velvets.

If you do wish to bring glamour into your home, purple accents in your bedroom or living room will prove relaxing and luxurious.

Alternatively, there are many shades to choose from: from bluish lavenders to brighter pink tones.


If you’re not into bold colours or are a tenant and can only decorate with neutral tones, white is an ideal choice – it allows you to transform a space with minimal effort, and without annoying your landlord!

Additionally, decorating with white allows you to bring in colours in smaller accents, from curtains to crockery. Clean, calming and cool, white is the perfect choice for all homes and décor.

A fresh lick of paint, whether simple white or daring yellow, will brighten up your home this spring and inject cheer and joy into all rooms. Get painting!
