Tips For Adding Color to Your Home

February 27, 2024

When it comes to home décor, committing to color can feel overwhelming. Painting your walls bright green may seem like a big risk, as well as expensive and time-consuming. We have some tips for bringing color into your home without fully committing. These are easy, inexpensive swaps that you can make to liven up your space.

Add Vibrant Rugs
A new rug is a great way to transform a space as it provides a room with texture, pattern, or color, and sometimes those things together. Rugs can be a great base to start within a room. You can play off of a pattern area rug and then match décor and art to the colors in that rug.

Powerful Pillows
Throw pillows can be the perfect (and inexpensive) way to add accent colors to a room. Colorful prints can bring a neutral-colored sofa to life. If you already have throw pillows, you can buy different pillow colors to swap them out when you need a refresh.

Lively Curtains and Blinds
Curtains can be a good bang for our buck and can be easily swapped out. Framing your windows with a fun, colorful print can be a good way to bring color into your home without fully committing.

Natural Accents
A great way to infuse a joyful atmosphere into any space is to bring colorful flowers and planters into your home.

Subtle Lamps and Lights
Lamps and lampshades can be a great opportunity to add color to your house. Consider adding decorative lighting over a piece of artwork or a stand-alone lamp for added ambiance.

Keep it Simple
Work on balancing bright colors and patterns with strong neutrals. This can work well with a neutral-colored sofa with a colorful rug and pillows. Or try matching art with colors found in a patterned rug.
