After a year of trendy soft grey palettes and black-and-white rooms, it's time to break the mould (and the winter blues!) with some daring splashes of colour. Not sure where to start? Check out these cheerful spaces and take note of where and how colour has been used.

Take a look at designer and queen-of-textiles Kathryn M. Ireland's interiors. She balances bold prints and colours with crisp white walls.

This home featured on Design*Sponge dared to use colour in a very bold way. My favourite room is the homeowner's bedroom, which takes a softer approach with muted colours and plenty of texture.

This playful living room is from the home of Dutch designer Hellen van Berkel. She pulled her palette from the rug and coordinated the accessories for a bright yet cohesive look. I love the raw wood beams, they keep the space warm and homey.

Don't shy away from transforming your neutral space with a few punchy pieces. Make it your new year's resolution to revamp your home one room at a time!
