Colorful accents can cheer up your house – and your life!

Colorful accents add warmth and energy to a room. They actually make your house and your life feel more joyful! Your choice of colors in colorful-accents2interior design elements is almost unlimited.

  • Zesty tropical shades like turquoise and hot pink
  • Primary tones of red, yellow and blue
  • Trendy colors like acid green and tangerine

Are you afraid to be so bold? “Just enough” is a good strategy for adding color. So, if you’re nervous, start small – or start in a small room – with:

 

  • colorful-accents3painted wall
  • Throw pillows
  • Bed linens
  • Table settings
  • Accessories
  • Artwork

 

 

 

Feeling braver? You can add larger touches of color in upholstery fabric, window coverings, rugs, wall coverings and furniture. Follow these tips to make sure your bright colors are energetic, but not chaotic:

  • Balance bright colors with white or black to make them pop.
  • For a softer look, complement bolder tones with neutral beige, cream or gray.
  • Think complementary colors, one soft and one bold; for example, sage green with bright red or powder blue with electric orange.
  • Start with a favorite piece of art that has splashes of bright color and let that define your bright palette.colorful-accents4
