Plum colours 'plumped for in home improvement projects'

Plum colours 'plumped for in home improvement projects'As the autumn sets in, reds and purples are becoming increasingly popular colour choices for home improvement projects, it has been suggested.

Writing in the Sunday Times, Katrina Burroughs points out that such 'berry shades' make for an ideal interior design project.

Indeed, she claims that the autumn is "the high point of the interiors calendar".

Those looking to incorporate the "classic strawberry-to-blackcurrant palette" into their latest DIY project may be interested to hear her advice that decorating using these colours can be complemented with black, silver and mirrored glass accessories.

Alternatively pistachio greens, chartreuses and teals can help with "cutting through the richness".

Meanwhile, Julia Kendell, interior designer of BBC show DIY SOS, recently claimed homeowners are increasingly decorating with bright colours to help make their properties feel more homely.
