Brit Decor: Uplift/

With the change of weather and the diminishing light, this is the time of year when I find it all too easy to slip into the seasonal doldrums. The good news is that along with seeking out light sources and sunshine, I also find that bright and vibrant colours are, in measured does, like medicine to my soul, hence today's Uplift theme.

As many of my friends will know, I am by nature a minimalist but this does not mean that colour is banished from my home. During the lighter Summer months I tend to ebb towards splashes of pastels whist the Winter sees the addition of small but intense injections of colour, rather like a shot of adrenaline!

Regular readers of Brit Decor will know that I am a big advocate of quick fix makeovers as a means of bringing interior design into everyone's lives, which is one of the great things about the Uplift style. A great example of this is the homemade bunting below, which cleverly reflects colours used elsewhere in the scheme and can be put together for next to no cost. Hooray for thrift and colour! 

If you are looking for straightforward no-nonsense impact, opt for a favourite bold, bright hue and paint a feature wall...or two! Then of course there are accessories - add a vibrantly coloured peppering of these to any neutral scheme and you will witness an immediate uplift to both the room and your mood.

Happy midweek and a very Happy Birthday to my Brother-in-Law, Matt!
