Ways to incorporate a pop of color into any space
Moving away from well-curated and sophisticated neutrals, modern trends are feeling braver and edgier with bold and bright color choices. The best aesthetics always have a story to tell; bringing a sense of adventure to any space in a variety of ways.
Dipping a room in deliciously inviting hues and giving it an exciting boost instantly set the mood and tone for the rest of your home.
From a vibrant accent wall to decorative accessories and statement rugs; below, we look at stylish ways to revamp your home into one that will brighten your spirits.
Rich and bold seating
Finding an element that adds energy to your décor scheme is a great way to create a space that makes you happy.
Selecting a perfect sofa for your home is a great investment — not only does it anchor the living room, but it’s also a fantastic piece to introduce color and personality.
Switch from the “safe” neutral and opt for an eye-catching design either in a bold solid color, or one with visually interesting graphic patterns.
To get it right, decide on a color or print that you’ll be happy to live with for a long time to come.
Vibrant wallpaper prints
Walking into a room and being confronted by a colorful decorative feature can be both delightful and intriguing.
From the bedroom to the powder room and beyond, wallpaper is a stunning way to breathe new life and artistry into your home. Tropical patterns that mix plenty of lush and energizing greens are effortlessly chic and strongly in vogue.
Similarly, 3D geometric prints lend a mid-century touch and are a stunning way to add character and an unexpected twist to a ceiling.
Explore colorful bathroom tiles
Injecting color into your bathroom can transform the space from sterile and uninviting into a rebranded sanctuary for you to indulge and unwind.
A wide variety of bathroom tiles allows you the freedom to play with different shades and patterns to draw attention to a focal point.
For an instant, accent mosaic tiles in jewel-tone hues are so on-trend — they add character and charm while giving off an eclectic jolt.
Consider the style you wish to achieve and remember it is the small things that give a bathroom space the wow-factor. You may want to choose tiles in two or three shades instead of one, to create a strong sense of contrast.
Color personality with floor coverings
Accent rugs are the perfect finishing in any interior aesthetic — they lighten up a room’s décor and infuse color and personality to a typically cold space.
Persian rugs, for example, are known to bring in undeniable charm and sophisticated flair to the scheme of things. Not only are they comfortable under-foot, but they also make a huge visual impact.
Use one that ties the lounge or bedroom color scheme for a truly cohesive look or add fullness and cozy between the kitchen island and perimeter countertops.
Art is always a good idea
A striking piece of art can add an instant pop of color and accentuate the room’s interior into something far from basic.
There are interesting ways to display art in your home without it looking tacky. A room dominated by a neutral color palette can act as a perfect backdrop for an art piece that incorporates few bold colors.
The artwork adds a punch and takes center stage without detracting from the rest of the room’s decorative elements.
Alternatively, if you have a gallery of art displayed in your home, painting the backdrop in a vibrant shade; think statement blues, tonal reds and energizing oranges will make the colors in your art vividly pop.
Incorporate flowers and plants
Plants and floors are increasingly being seen as a way to boost up a room’s overall appeal and ambiance.
Colorful foliage such as Red Aglaonema, Fittonia, and Croton can bloom throughout the season and transition beautifully from the garden into the home.
Hang flowers like lavender to add color and give your home a deep characteristic fragrance — when grouped in an attractive arrangement, they act as a gorgeous centerpiece.
Use equally stunning decorative vases and unique planters to add to the room’s personality.
Make your kitchen pop
You can never go wrong with a classic white kitchen; however, a pop of color keeps things visually interesting.
If the idea of committing to an entirely vibrant space freaks you out, try working with one accent at a time. Think emerald green cabinets, indigo stools or maybe a special extra touch of a red accent wall — the results, subtle yet striking.
When experimenting with color, you may want to keep your floor choice simple; perhaps work with a hardwood floor in a beautiful, natural patina.
