Working Color Into Your Casa

As soon as I walk outside, I am greeted with splashes of color – bright orange poppies, vibrant green shrubbery, deep red roses, perfect pink peonies – the list goes on and on.  Seeing so much color in the outdoors makes me long for the same pops of color inside, and luckily, there are many easy ways to do this that don’t involve a bucket of paint.  See below for some tips on incorporating color into your home.

I love having one (or two) bright upholstered items.  However, having bright upholstery means that the rest of the room should be fairly neutral and complement (but not compete with) the colorful pieces you add in, so keep that in mind when you’re redecorating.

Adding some funky, colorful pillows are the easiest way to bring in some color and switch up the look of a room.  Imagine how different the sofa above would look with simple black or white pillows, or even with pretty floral pillows like the one pictured from Wanderloot.com.

Don’t forget your floors!  Adding a rug, whether geometric, floral, Oriental, or traditional, is a great way to mix in color.

Add accessories!  The rooms above look so bright, but it’s only small items that give the room color – pillows, pottery, plants, art, wall decor, boxes, flowers, and lamps.  Mix in bold accessories to add a punch of color to an otherwise neutral room.  I love the idea of this cobalt blue tribal blanket from Wanderloot.com in an otherwise all white room!

One of my favorite ways to add color is with art.  There is nothing more stunning than a bright, all white room with vibrant, colorful artwork on the walls.

Another awesome (and easy) way to add color is to switch the drapery!  This is an especially great idea if you still have heavy, dark curtains hanging from the winter.  Switching them out with something light and bright will completely transform the room in a wonderful way!  Now, how do you plan to add more color into your home?
