It's easy to brighten up your home décor and create a festive atmosphere all year 'round with the simple use of paint.

When special occasions roll around, you are bound to be busy entertaining family and friends with everything from simple hors d'oeuvres and cocktails to a full sit-down extravaganza.

You may have planned the meal you will serve down to the last detail, but you're not so sure of what do to with the little time you have left to create an attractive, welcoming décor.

Here are some tips you can use to quickly spruce up the areas of your home where you'll be entertaining.

  • In a dining or living room, you can choose a shade bolder than the existing paint colour on the walls to create a splash of colour that'll instantly add pizzazz and style. Simply visit our Colour Gallery and search for your current wall colour; you will automatically be given several shades of coordinating colours that could be good candidates for an accent wall.
  • You can paint smaller spaces like your bathroom to refresh the wall colour.
  • To liven up the look of any room, apply a fresh coat of paint to your trim and other accents.

Your table setting is another versatile decorating element that you can use to make your home more colourful and festive. Simply choose a colour theme that echoes the wall and trim colours and follow it through with the tablecloth and dinner napkins.

So charm your guests with your décor ideas all year 'round with the creative use of paint colour.

Visit our Colour Gallery to find the perfect colour for any project.
