Color in design can be somewhat daunting. There’s just so many options! Adding bold color into design can be even more daunting. Thankfully, there’s so many ways you can add color into your space in both large and small ways. Check out some of our favorite colorful additions.
For the very adventurous, going all in with bold color can be an instant statement and set the mood for a room. Keep the color scheme minimal for best results. Decide on a smaller color palette ahead of time and align your choices with that palette. As a result, this will keep the room harmonious and prevent it from becoming too busy and overwhelming.
Artwork is a great way to bring bold color in to a space without having to paint the walls. Whether you use a series of smaller pieces or go with one extra large piece, you can make a big impact with one addition! Tie the color in to other areas of the room with accessories and pillows, or let it speak for itself with a neutral base.
Rugs are an instant boost the color palette of your room. Depending on your furniture layout in the space, they’re also an easy way to get a bold color without feeling overwhelming. Parts of the rug will likely be covered with other furniture, which will soften the look. A bold rug in a room with lighter and more neutral walls can also help to ground the space and really define it.
If art and rugs are feeling like too much to dive into, accents are always useful to bring in some pops of color. Use colorful pieces of smaller furniture like side chairs or poufs for a bigger impact. Or stick to things like accent pillows and throw blankets for additional bold color on furniture. You can also use books and accessories to bring some color into shelving units and on top of surfaces.
Adding bold color doesn’t have to mean adding huge swaths of red or pink. It can be as simple as some pops of lush green in your space. Use flowering plants if you want a dab of something besides green. You can also add extra interest with plants by playing around with texture and height in your varieties.
Bold color spaces can go from moodily saturated to serene with a twist, so have fun with how you bring in the color!
