There’s something so fun about redecorating your home. Next time you revamp, check out these ways to bring color to your home—you won’t regret it!
Decorating the rooms in your home adds such an intimate personality to a house that would otherwise feel dull. The power of decoration, of color, and of personal style play a huge role in making a house feel more like a home. If drab neutrals no longer hold any appeal, or you just generally want to add a pop of color to your space, check out these different ways to bring color to your home. Whether it’s in the bedroom or in the kitchen, you will surely feel a little spark of joy when you walk into the room.
Use the 60-30-10 Rule
One of the most important tips we can give you for adding color to your home comes from the 60-30-10 rule. When you want to add color to your home, this rule suggests you divide the colors into percentages—60% dominant color, 30% secondary color, and 10 % accent color. You can break that down further into 60% of a room’s color is the walls, 30% of the color is the upholstery, and 10% are the accent pieces. If you don’t know here to begin, turn to this rule.
Paint an Accent Wall
Accent walls provide an excellent way to bring a pop of a color into a room. If you want to work on the living room, kitchen, or a bedroom, an accent wall can add more life to the room’s overall atmosphere. It can also change the focal point of the room, so make sure you prepare for a shift in energy. Choose a bold, contrasting color, or use a darker tone than the other walls.
Add a Rug
We absolutely love the elegance a colorful rug brings to a room. There are many different reasons why you’d want a colorful rug, and one of the most basic reasons is the warmth they bring. Similar to an accent wall, a colorful rug acts as an anchor for the room, so your guests will feel more at home in the space. Rugs themselves are like works of art for the floor—take advantage of the beauty they’ll add to your home!
Artwork offers one of the simplest ways to bring color to your home, and it can elevate and rejuvenate your room. Unless you want to create more of an eclectic style, don’t overload the room with art—just a few pieces placed throughout the space will add that decorative and colorful touch.
Use Colorful Throws and Pillows
You may think this will only work in the living room or bedroom, but it actually works all around the house. In the winter, you can use blankets in every area of the home—even the kitchen! Use little throw pillows or blankets to add color to the chairs. These little pops of color can add a warm and welcoming atmosphere to your home.
