Bold statement walls are not the only way to introduce a pop of colour to a space. Add a touch of finesse to your home by introducing colourful pieces of furniture; a contemporary look to transform your space. The use of colour is essential to add personality and flair to the room and even a even a dash of colour can enhance an indoor space dramatically. As with any interior decorating, there is a guide of dos and don'ts. Alon Sachs, co-founder of Mobelli Furniture and Living says that colourful pieces of furniture can work for both the daring and conservative, and that the outcome can be pleasantly surprising – providing you choose your pieces wisely.

Sachs shares his dos and don't for adding colourful pieces to your home

Before selecting your top furniture picks, first think about the setting you wish to create, then consider the size of your space and decide which pieces will work well in the area. Lastly, review colours that work in harmony with your wall colour – the latter is fundamental. And if necessary, that colourful piece of furniture can easily create the degree of balance your indoor area has been longing for.

the dos:

· Keep large furniture items neutral. · Add a colourful statement chair, rug or scatter cushion to keep your space vibrant and up to date.

the don’ts:

· Steer clear of colours that clash – for example a combination of green and violet is a no-no. · Stick to a colour pallet and use harmonious shades that complement the wall colour and other large neutral shades of furniture.
