Deciding on the interior design for your living space can be tough. You might find that traditional colors, such as light blue and white, don’t give your living space the life it needs. Try incorporating some life by adding pieces with tastefully bold colors that can make your living space pop. You can even add the pantone colors of the year!Here are a few ways you can brighten up a dull room.
Start Small with an Area Rug
If you are thinking about adding some life to your living space, but are not sure about painting your walls an odd color, an area rug is a good place to start.It is an easy way to incorporate a unique color scheme and can be removed if you don’t like it.
When thinking about bold colors, don’t be afraid to go bold with a pattern. Apurple, black, and white area rug(pictured above) has a funky pattern that can add some flair to a room without being overwhelming.
Adding bold accessories can make all the difference between a boring room and one that has a vibrant energy. It can be something as simple as a pillow, drapery, or something larger like an ottoman. A bold accessory should be the center piece of the room, and should stand out from everything else. Take a picture of your room before you purchase an accessory, and take out your phone to see if would make sense.
If you are feeling a little bit more adventurous, add a bold piece of furniture. Ensure that the piece of furniture flows throughout the rest of your home.
For example, an orange and cream loveseat is a contemporary piece of furniture that mixes bold and subdued colors. The beige leather allows the orange to pop and brings a light, yet energetic aesthetic.
Be Mindful of Lighting
The best lighting for your home could clash with the color scheme you want for your furniture. Come up with three to five colors that you would think would fit best within your space. In rooms with plenty of natural lighting, your bold pieces will shine.Also remember that the color of the light bulb you use can have a massive effect on the tone. Colder-tone lights will help your bold colors stand out in rooms with not as much natural light.
