Adding color can be tricky because you don't want to choose a gaudy, glaring hue or overwhelm the eye with something far too blinding. Fortunately, there are all sorts of ways to add an eye-catching splash of color to any space, from living room to dining room to bathroom. You can add freshness to small rooms or even make large rooms look cozier.
Add your color subtly, especially if you don't want to go overboard or draw the eye to one particular place. A few picture frames, colorful flow pillows, and a single bold neutral – in this case, the rug – are all you need.
A functional table in a fun color is a fabulous way to add some brightness to your neutral room. It adds a lovely freshness in small spaces, too.
I say that as someone with a 4:1 ratio of throw pillows to seats. Heather and I have a problem with pillowcases. By the way, you can buy affordable but adorable cases to cover your current pillows.
Oooh, that's a lovely color, too.
These are so retro! I kind of want them, but in orange.
This is a huge statement, though. You don't necessarily need a big yellow couch – unless that's your thing.
This can be done well, even if you choose bold patterns, you just have to be careful.
This is the cutest kitchen table!
A patchwork rug? Yes, please!
See how the flowers match the pink in the pillows? And again, a bold neutral pattern never hurts.
I have a thing for turquoise and I love the addition of pink here! I might have to copy this somewhere in the house.
The book, the pillow, that pretty wreath – perfection!
It's not all about turquoise, lime green, and hot pink. A pretty peach mixed with copper looks just lovely.
There's something kind of lush and decadent about this couch, though.
Painstaking, but worth it.
A night table or knickknack can add some dazzle without overwhelming your sanctuary.
Of all kinds.
