Brights are Back! Colourful homes to inspire

The days when neutrals dominated decorating are well and truly over. We couldn’t be more delighted to wave goodbye to taupe and welcome bold colours back into our homes.

If you follow interior design accounts on Instagram, you’ll already have noticed homes decorated with vibrant colours gaining popularity. Decorating with bold colours for the first time may seem daunting, but never fear! From colour-blocking to rainbow décor, a bold colour palette is accessible to everyone, if you know how.

If you’re looking for inspiring multicoloured rooms, look no further than Instagram. It’s a great place to see real homes decorated with bold colours.

5 of the best colourful home Instagram accounts to follow:



Richard is the master of the mural, with impactful colour-blocked designs painted onto the walls, furniture and even ceilings of his home. This Instagram account is a great example of how bold colours and patterns can actually make rooms feel bigger, as well as brighter.



If you’re worried that bold colours don’t work in a period home, think again. Tom’s converted Victorian workhouse perfectly blends blocks of colour with period features. The overall look is eye-catching and sophisticated.



Rachel’s home oozes joyful rainbow colours from every corner. She also shares useful tips to help you get the look, including ideas for painting furniture and the occasional Instagram Live Q&A. She also dresses as she decorates, so her account is a source of brightly coloured outfit ideas too!



Jess and Rick share their journey to lovingly renovate their home in a palette of soft pastel and candy colours. There are clever nods to the house’s art deco roots, with the addition of mock panelling, vintage style wallpaper and retro patterned tiles. These two love colour so much, it was even the theme of their wedding!



This account features a curated selection of the best colourful interiors on Instagram, shared via the #colourfulhomevibe hashtag. It’s a great place to see homes of lots of different styles, all united by their creative use of colour.
