Bright colours are having more than just their fifteen minutes of fame right now, stealing the limelight in both fashion and interiors. And as this crush on colour continues to grow, people are getting bolder and braver with colour in their homes. We've teamed up with California Shutters – who colour match their shutters to our Painthouse collection* - to show you how easy it is to make colour work its magic in your home. Don't be afraid to dive in.

Walls in Liv and shutters in Nikolena.

Contrast vibrant brights with candy pastels for an ultra-modern feel. Combining calmer colours on your walls with energising shutter shades is a brilliant way to showcase colour and make your shutters pop. These Tier on Tier shutters in Nikolena from our Fresh capsule mean light-lovers can maximise on sunshine without compromising on privacy by opening wide the top tiers. The angle of the slats can also be tilted easily with just one touch.

Walls in Thor and shutters in Ada

If you love cool, dependable greys on your walls, injecting a shot of vivacious colour using shutters is a brilliant way of adding personality and bringing your room to life. These full height shutters in Ada simultaneously draw the eyes in and anchor the room with a beautiful burst of unexpected colour.

Walls and shutters in Aksel

Double up on impact by picking one colour for your shutters and walls and committing to it. Here we've gone for a luxurious feel with Aksel from the Luxe capsule. The shutters give a stunning focal point to create depth and dramatic light patterns, and with just one touch you can tilt the slats and go from near blackout to a light-filled room. Accent with accessories and textiles in rich colours or metallics to bring an opulent feel.

Shutters in Luna and mountains in Blake

Have some carefree fun in the kids' rooms with these solid, full height, raised hardwood California shutters. The ultimate blackout solution, opting for a playfully bright but sleep friendly blue like Luna means you get beauty and some sleep! Everybody wins.

Shutters in Colby, walls in Piper

The pink and green colour combo is a big hit this year, turning last year's crush on soft blush into a desire for a more intense palette. The bold green Colby on these hardwood shutters works a treat combined with a saccharine candy pink wall. Keep it on the brighter side to ensure a contemporary look.
