There's a never ending myriad of ways that you can inject some color and style into your home, but trying to decide how can be a headache. That's where we come in, as we have found some of the best and simplest ways to put a pop of wow factor styling into your interior spaces. From bathrooms to kitchens and everything in between, prepare to be inspired by our colorful creativity!

1. Fabulous ceramics will up your style!

The great thing about adding color and pattern with ceramic items is that if and when you fancy a change, you can simply move them to another room!

2. Carpets always have a wow factor

Bold, beautiful carpets that showcase bright colors and fantastic patterns really tie a room together and raise its profile too. Just look at this living room, if you don't believe us!

3. Feature walls are fantastic

When you don't want to go overboard, but you do want to dip your toe in the waters of bodl design, a feature wall is the perfect way to get started. You can go for wallpaper or paint and it's an easy fix if you decide it's not for you!

4. Style up your storage

Storage always has a bit of a reputation for being a dull home necessity, but if you paint up your cupboard doors, we think it will come into its own! Add funky patterns too, to really prove your interior designer credentials!

5. Start small, with an accent color

Cushions and lampshades are a super simple and cheap way to get into colors and patterns and you can go as full on or sparse as you like! 

6. Turn up those tiles

A bathroom is a fantastic room to inject some fun into, especially if you are willing to get a little crazy with your tiles! Bright colours and funky patterns really look the part in a wet space!

7. Play with perspective

If you agree that your bathroom needs livening up, but you're not a fan of tiles, what about this for some inspiration? It's almost like an optical illusion, but it's super cool and only features in the shower enclosure.

8. Brighten up your boudoir

Vibrant bed linen is a quick and easy way to freshen up your bedroom and best of all, it's anon-permanent option too! If you get bored, simply change the sheets and try something else!

9. Pretty home furnishings
