Adding color is a great way to freshen up your decor: a pop of color can take your cozy nest from drab to dazzling in a matter of moments. Plus, adding color to your humble home is easy. Here are some creative ideas to get you started:
Get help from Mother Nature
An easy and inexpensive way to add color to your home is by bringing nature inside. The easiest way is to add plants directly where you want to add more color. Depending on their type, plants like Pothos, Dracaena, and Bird's Nest Fern can add many different shades of green to your decor. For even more color, choose plants with flowers such as bromeliads, African violet or geranium. But don't stop there! You can also decorate your room with other natural elements, such as rocks and pebbles. In other words, take what nature has to offer, and use it to be creative!
Add colored furniture
Furniture can also be a source of color! You can mix and match them, depending on the look and colors you want. Give your dining room a 'pop' of color with our Flam chairs, which come in a pretty pastel pink, classic black or the timeless white. Our Navali changing table can give your nursery a comforting tone, while our beautiful Sweet Piggy dresser lends a refreshing look to any room with its pastel pink baskets. You don't have to buy a set of furniture. Most of the time, a piece of furniture or two is all you need for an addition of color.
Line one wall - or several!
Upholstery is another sure-fire trick to add some punch of color to the house. It instantly sets the tone in the room and can be used in multiple ways. For example, it can be used to create an accent wall or to determine the color palette that will be used in the room. Another advantage of tapestry is that it can be made of many different types of materials. Not only does it add color, but also a different texture!
Focuses on something that's already there
Color in a room can also be used very well to emphasize an element that is already there, such as a staircase, a door or a flowerpot. In such cases, it is easy to paint these same elements, add colorful designs to the door, or decorate the flowerpot. If you are not the DIY type, pillow cases, sheets or colored throws will do the trick. In fact, your options are pretty limitless!
Artwork is a great original way to add color to your living room - or any room! They add a more decorative touch, but also several colors and shapes. But again, don't stop here. Decorate a wall or two with pictures framed in frames of different colors and sizes. You can even put your own paints on it to add a bit of your personality! Come on, hang this art project and create an artistic backdrop!
Hope these tips inspired you to add some color to your rooms. Remember: it can be as easy as adding a few plants or a new piece of furniture. No matter what you choose, you can't go wrong with a little color!
