Six Creative Ways to Add Color to Your Home

Six Creative Ways to Add Color to Your Home
  • Opening Intro -

    Are you a romantic, a world traveler, or a minimalist?

    As people enter your home, they are picking up clues about you.

    Color can be a small or bold statement, but always offers warmth and personality to your space


Here are six creative ways to introduce color into your home:

Paint The Town Red

The old bucket of paint can make the most dramatic change to your home in the blink of an eye. Dark colors on the wall can bring a feeling of calm and elegance to a space. Try a contrasting or accent wall to really add to the drama and interest. If you walk into the living room and want to be cool and calm, go for a peach tone. In the kitchen, your senses are being piqued, go for a bold and sassy paprika red.

Furniture Fun

When it is time to buy new furniture, don’t fear the colors. Too often, we end up in an argument with ourselves seeking assurance that our big ticket item is a practical buy. Beige does “go with everything”, but is beige really what inspires you? A great canary yellow sofa, or emerald green arm chair with a hot pink ottoman might be the inspiration you need. You will be glad for the conversation starter and reminded of you bravery and bold choice while you watch TV on it.

Pay Attention to Details

Accent and decor pieces in the home can be a more subtle way to add color to your home. Throw pillows come in wildly creative colors and can be easily swapped out with the seasons. Large vases can add architecture and color to a dark corner. If your partner just can’t live with out neutral walls, then pop up some scandalously vibrant curtains that add texture and softness to your room.

Art For Thought

Art pieces can be a real investment piece for your home, or just a cheap print you’ve always liked in a nice frame. No need to be fussy, but art be one more extension of your personality. Rothko’s famous color blocks can help add color and serenity to a wall, while Miro might add whimsy and youthful color splashes. 

Spray The Old New

A can of spray paint has to be the most underrated thing around. Take that old brassy chandelier down and spray paint it turquoise. Old dining chairs nicked and mismatched can be made fantastic with a coat of red. Even the little things like your picture frames can offer a pop of color by spraying them with a fresh new coat of paint.

Paper Over It

Wall paper is back and better than ever. Cover your problem wall with a gorgeous paper that also delivers a sophistication impossible to achieve with paint. Patterns, designs and even textures are endless, waiting for just the right wall.

Adding color to your home is not just for those in magazines, but a way to make your home warm and inviting. It’s add an extra element of beauty to your home that others will notice immediately.  Friends and family will enter your space with a new intention and enjoy the added interest.
