Block Those Colours!

So theres a trend thats been going around for some time that I am really loving: Colour Blocking. 
This trend is super easy to achieve without going out and buying all new homewares, all you need is some paint or maybe some fabric dye.
Colour blocking is an easy way to bring a modern look to your home without having super modern decor, you want that colour to say 'POW!' so its all about how you style it! Typically colour blocking looks best against white walls however it could also look great against darker walls as the dark tones will make the colours pop even more then they would against the white. Colour blocking can also be done on your walls and looks awesome against black or white furniture.
Another interesting way to colour block is to spray paint old ornaments with bright colours and display them about your house!
I will admit this is a project I am yet to try out so stay tuned for my future projects (I'm thinking lamp shades, jewellery boxes and pot plants!). If you, like so many out there, are too busy to find the time for this then why not check out the following products from some awesome online sellers? (Most items aren't repurposed, but its always great to support hard working artisans!)

 1. Set of 3 colour blocked crochet baskets from My Very Own Eye Goggles
2. Red vintage framed magnetic black board from Shugabee Lane
3. Neon pink wooden serving bowls from Wind and Willow Home
