Style Tips for Bringing Color Into Your Home

Neutral coloring in the home makes a great foundation. The question is–what’s next? After you’ve established your white, gray or beige foundational color scheme, how will you decorate? Do you want to bring color into your home? Adding color fills the space with personality and style–doesn’t that sound like the perfect combination?

Just Add Paint

Painting is considered one of the best ways to invite color into your home. You’ll tailor the design, set the scene and surround yourself with a favorite hue. Not sure which color to choose? Warm colors tend to add cozy comfort, while cool colors evoke serenity and calm. If you’re not sure about painting the entire room, consider just painting the ceiling a vibrant shade, or create an accent wall. The green built-in bookshelves seen here are an incredible way to enhance the look of the room with a splash of sophistication.

Select Bold Furnishings

Is there a show-stopping color you’ve seen lately? It could be just the one to enhance the design of your home. And, while you’re considering that vibrant hue, look for it in furnishings. The furniture you add to your home can pull the whole look together. Go bright for modern vibes, or jewel-toned for transitional style. No matter the color you choose, let it make a statement in your home. These dining chairs in mustard yellow are original and eye-catching while also adding comfort to the space.

Take Design to the Window

We are the experts in window coverings, after all. While many homeowners love the look of blended neutrals, the windows are a great place to bring color into your home. From subtle hues, to rich colors, window shades can create art at the window. With a wide fabric selection, you aren’t limited to just color. Drapery, rollers, and roman shades can feature patterns, colors and textures that amplify the design of your home. (And you’re adding light control, energy efficiency and privacy, too!)

Choose Your Favorite Elements

If you’re worried about taking a big leap–slow down. Inviting color into your home can happen in small, simple ways. Begin with a color scheme; consider painting at least one wall. Accent pillows and throw blankets will layer the style in your space, with colors, patterns and textures. Wall art can bring color and sharp design. An area rug invites originality and warmth. Plants will immediately add color, life and dimension–whether real or faux. Today’s peel and stick wallpaper offerings mean that you can add neutrals or colors in easily, changing them when you want.
