Bright colors can be a challenge to work with but shouldn’t be dismissed out of fear. A splash of bright color goes a long way in a room but boldly going full color transforms a space. If neutrals leave much to be desired for you, let bright colors turn up the volume in your home.
Choose two colors that contrast or complement one another. Use one color as the dominant and accent with the other. When you want a more sophisticated look, keep furnishings and accessories simple. Clean lines are key to a more sleek aesthetic.
Let color explode in your home by mixing upholstery fabrics of vibrant hues on large pieces of furniture. Keep the walls neutral to balance the space and provide a clean background.
Sprinkle color around the room for a balanced look that makes a space come alive.
Artwork can be your inspiration or the crowning glory of a brightly colored room. Creating a feature wall of pop art is a great way to infuse color.
A colorful painting is an ideal accent for a room that needs that little something extra. Take cues from the painting to choose accent furniture and decorative accessories.
Bold upholstery fabric invites color into a room in a big way. Express your color personality with vivid furniture pieces. Balance the bold with neutrals or softer tones of the same color.
Go monochromatic and use one accent color for a statement. Walls, window treatments, furniture and accessories in varying tones of one color give a room impact. Create a focal point with art that contains complementary or contrasting colors.
A vibrant bohemian look can be accomplished with a mash-up of colorfully patterned textiles. When choosing textiles for this look, select patterns that have some of the same colors in common.
Brightly colored geometric prints mixed with white infuse color in a less saturated method. This gives a room a less intense punch of color.
Embrace bold color and pattern with wallpaper. Choose furnishings that contrast the primary wall color and accessorize with the same wall color throughout the room.
If you’re not ready to commit to an overall color transformation, start by adding bright accents. Use the same color or group of colors throughout the design to keep the look cohesive.
Working with bright colors is a great way to add some fun and energy to your space. Don’t be afraid to go bold and bright. To start slowly, experiment with a few colors and see where it takes you. You can gradually add more color as you become more accustomed to a brighter interior.
