Whether you prefer warm and cozy or bright and loud, incorporating color into your décor can be a reluctant endeavor. If it’s in your personality, you need a little color to brighten up your home. So, the question is – how can you incorporate color without going crazy? Educate yourself and strengthen your color confidence!
When using colors, it’s a good idea to alternate bold walls and pieces to prevent overkill. For example, if you’ve found a bright sofa that you can’t live without, you might want to go with a light or neutral color on the wall. And vice versa – if there’s a paint color you’ve been dreaming of, fill the room with more neutral, toned-down pieces. Play off the walls with pops of colorful pillows, candlesticks, or photo frames.
Another thing to remember is to keep bright colors consistent. Using bold colors in only one room of the house won’t mesh well with the rest of the house, especially if it’s primarily decorated in neutral colors. In fact, other rooms often appear as if they’re missing something when they’re not in sync with other spaces in the home.
Finally, don’t be afraid to mix colors. Go with what you love – if you end up disliking it, there are always ways to change! If you’re feeling apprehensive, check out these crazy color combinations from House Beautiful. They’ll either calm your nerves or ignite inspiration!
