Put Color to your Space

If you tired of your space, your feeling down. Making changes in your space is one thing you should do and adding color to it can do a lot for you. I’ve seen this article and it inspired me…

Here are tips on how you can put color in your home:

Customize Your Furniture

An otherwise ordinary piece of furniture can be given a new lease on life with a quick lick of paint. You don’t have to go all out — dipped legs and painted drawer fronts are all that’s needed to make an impact with this entryway console.

Layer In Color

If you’re fickle when it comes to favorite hues, you’d best layer in color as the mood takes you. Keep the base of your room neutral, and then introduce bold accent colors across accessories and textiles. This approach makes it easy to swap out pieces to quickly refresh the scheme.

Add Quirky Touches

Using everyday objects, like a teapot, in an unusual setting is a great way to make a color statement. Try potting a houseplant in a patterned teapot or old jam jar for instant green-fingered style.

Color-match Your Style

If you find it hard to know how to mix different colors together, then try sticking to a simple palette of two hues. Here a simple blue and yellow scheme creates a fresh and modern look that allows you to add or subtract pieces as you discover new finds.

Accentuate Existing Features

You can use color to highlight an everyday aspect of your home and have it make a statement in the process. Why not paint the individual spindles on your staircase in graduating shades? This is a weekend project that will give your entryway the color.

Group Together Ceramics

Sift through your kitchen cupboards, and you’ll probably see a pattern emerge in the color and textures of your ceramics. Try grouping similar styles together to make pretty and colorful vignettes from pieces you already have.

Refresh Your Bedding

The bed is almost always the main focus of the bedroom, so use it to make a color statement with a set of vibrant sheets. Using a double-sided duvet gives you the opportunity to display a pattern that will bring visual interest to a color-blocked design.

Color Blocking

The shower curtain is the ideal element of a bathroom to introduce color because you can change it quickly when you grow tired of it.

Arrange Fresh Blooms

There’s nothing quite so cheery as a bunch of fresh blooms. Whether you cut them from your own garden or treat yourself at the local florist, you can be sure that a vase of flowers will bring beautiful color and scent into your home.

Curate a Gallery Wall

Art is not only a great way to personalize a space — it can also bring color into a room. Hang a grouping of colorful prints and paintings, or give stylish monochromatic pieces a vibrant update with brightly hued mounts.
