Paint-box brights bring a sense of hope and confidence to interiors, but bold, playful colours shouldn’t equal a lack of sophistication – these are approachable, mature and chic. Whether used as accents or all-over for a saturating effect, colours such as pink, teal and orange are very powerful, with an irresistible vivacity. Texture and colour are inseparable, with saturated velvets the choice of many fabric houses. Bright hues not quite your thing? There are also pretty pastels and gelato colours, pitch-perfect for spring – soft pink, parma violet, lemon sorbet and pistachio.
