Relying on neutral and natural furniture is a great way to make sure your décor stays relevant and trendy for years to come. You may be in love with a bright yellow couch now, but will you still find it appealing in a year or even six months? While I do recommend staying safe with traditional tones, a pop of color here and there is an amazing way to add life to a room. Keep reading for four ways to brighten up your space.
Tips for Adding Color to a Room
- Wall Art
A big, bright, beautiful painting or picture is a great way to add color to a room. Right now, having a personal gallery above the couch is trendy. Click here to learn how to arrange your pictures for a sophisticated look. Also, if you don’t want a traditional painting, tapestry is a fun and unique way to brighten a room.
- Pillows and Throws
Since you have a neutral base, it’s always easy to refresh your look with accessories. New items such as throw pillows, blankets or a coffee table tray can instantly revitalize the room. These fresh and new items are a simple, yet effective, place to start. Plus, they can be inexpensive, allowing you to change up your look often and redecorate with the seasons.
- Area Rugs
A large area rug can be the anchor to any room. Go for a bold pattern with color for a rich and full look. Additionally, area rugs are versatile and can separate sections of a room for multiple uses. These rugs have a variety of patterns and colors that will fit in any home.
- Painting an Accent Wall
Painting an accent wall is a great way to add color to a small space, so your color can be bolder and brighter without overwhelming a room. To really bring the room together, pick a complementary color that matches large furniture or accent furniture. Check out my previous blog post to learn how to pick the best paint color for your home.
When decorating a large or small space, large furniture is better suited as neutral colors, so you can use pops of color to bring life to the room. Interchangeable pieces such as wall art, pillows and throws, area rugs and accent walls are all perfect options for infusing your home with color.
