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
Get rid of the blahs in your house now that winter is over. Add bright and cheerful colors to lift your spirits and create a vibrant interior look.
