Bring Color into Your Home: 4 Ideas for You

Neutral tones have long been the foundation for interior spaces. They establish a serene environment that’s seen in most homes today. But, maybe you’re craving something a little different. Color could be just that. Color isn’t just about personal expression; it can transform the entire vibe of your space. Whether you’re settling into a new house, or seeking to revitalize your current one, let’s explore four ways to add color into your home!

1. Pursuing Paint

First off, painting is the ultimate game-changer if you’re after a dramatic transformation. Colors can work wonders, illuminating rooms and reflecting your personality. Cool tones evoke peace, while warmer hues bring in comfort. If painting a whole room feels daunting, try an accent wall. A colorful feature, like these dark green bookshelves, steal the show and draw you in. Furthermore, color isn’t confined to walls. There’s a world of possibilities beyond it!

2. Add Vibrant Furniture

While neutrals have a beautiful look, adding a splash of color to your furnishings can elevate your space. Imagine incorporating a bold jewel-toned color into your home. These hues are stunning and surprisingly forgiving of everyday dirt. This is especially great if you have kids or animals. These orange chairs in this conversation area harmonize with the brightly-colored kitchen barstools. Thus, it draws your attention effortlessly around the space. With neutral wooden floors and kitchen cabinetry, the orange color is born to stand out in this space!

3. Upgrade Your Window Game

Window treatments wield an enormous influence on a room’s character. Without them, a space can feel stark and unfinished. Why settle for blending in when you can stand out with vibrant drapery, patterned roller or roman shades, or soft-colored honeycomb shades? These choices bring color and personality to your space, amplifying its charm. However, if you’re looking to add color in smaller ways, we know just what to do.

4. Select Decorative Accents

You don’t have to make a big change to add color into your home. Small changes can yield big results in a space as well. Think about adding a bold area rug, colorful artwork, or vibrant throw pillows. Don’t forget the allure of greenery—live or artificial—adding color, texture, and vibrancy to your rooms. Also, peel-and-stick wallpaper is a great addition, too. It’s equal parts easy to apply and remove.
