Dark colours are usually taboo, especially in small homes but in 2017, we are saying why not? If your home receives lots of natural light or if you have a more distinguished taste, you can afford to introduce some sombre tones to the interior space.

Neutral colours are always a firm favourite, giving us a chance to create a very cosy and warm environment, like in this design by professionals Maison Noblesse. It also gives you a chance to add a few splashes of colour in the form of cushions, artwork or decor items.

3. Blues

Blue is a classic colour that is sure to lighten any room. It brings in the feeling of being at sea or under the beautiful blue sky. It instantly calms and soothes and thus is perfect for a bedroom or bathroom.

4. A combination

This year, we are all about getting a little bit creative! Mix together complementary colours and tones for a stylish and funky look and feel, like these designers have done in the kitchen. You'll inject your home with life and soul.

5. Wallpaper
