“Color creates moods — think of a serene aqua bathroom, a cheery yellow breakfast nook, or a kid’s room done in energetic primary hues. The optimistic colors found in this assortment of rooms are guaranteed to brighten your mood!” Here are a handful of ways to refresh the rooms in your home with color that I found from Better Homes and Gardens.
Accessorize with Color
“So you love pink (or purple or orange or red) but you’re scared to paint the walls your favorite hue, or invest in a boldly colored $2,000 sofa. Don’t worry; hot color is actually more powerful against a subtle ground. Just choose a few colorful accessories and place them throughout the room in a pattern that’s pleasing to the eye. Here, the focal-point floral pillow creates a visual triangle with the lampshade and vase on the mantel.”
“A surefire way to make any color pop is to showcase it against black and white. There’s only one color in this kitchen — blue — and there isn’t much of it, but boy, does it make a statement! The end wall is the key to this chic space: the wallpaper combines blue and white, with touches of beige found on the floor, while the bench ties in the black cabinets.”
i tend to buy fun accessories and conservative furniture because big pieces are more expensive to replace.
