Design Space - 09/07/2022

How you decorate your space speaks volumes about who you are and what you love. While there are many ways to add personality to your décor, using color is one of the simplest and most effective methods. 

Decorating with bold colors, for instance, might stray away from classic neutral designs, but it could add vibrant style, sophistication, and personality to your space.

In this blog post, we will explore how to decorate with bright colors and use color in interesting and eye-catching ways. From paint colors to furniture choices, we have got you covered! Here is room color design made simple. So get ready to add a little bit of life (and color) to your home décor!

  1. Paint the walls

One way to add color to your home is with paint. When choosing a paint color, it is important to consider the feeling you want to create in the space. For example, light colors can make a room feel airy and open, while dark colors can add a sense of sophistication and drama.

Paint your space mindfully, since the placement of color can enlarge or compress a space. At the same time, think of the mood you want and the overall color palette you might want and go ahead accordingly. The world is your oyster.

  1. Have a mix of neutral and colorful furniture

Placing large neutral-colored furniture pieces with a few vibrant accents could create an artful and sophisticated space. 

In this case, the couch could be creamy white, with a bright teal accent chair. Or a light grey bed would compliment a pink nightstand gorgeously. Such arrangements would make space for you to place smatterings of golden, blue, and pink while retaining a grounded look.

  1. Be cohesive about your approach

Stand back and look at the bigger picture. It might help you not place garishly clashing colors in the same room. Before acquiring an object, think of how it’d fit into your space. Having colors that clash could make your space look cluttered and messy. The key to modern colorful interior design is having a balanced approach.

In the same way, having too many colder hues like blue and purple could make the space look stylish but somewhat uninviting. Warmth, on the other hand, can be added by using tints of orange, red, or yellow. But use them carefully, as too much could lead to an overwhelming space that feels like an assault on the senses!

  1. Lighting can transform your space

Lighting is another important aspect to consider when using color in your home. The way light hits certain colors can change the entire feel of a space.

For example, if you have a painting with various shades of blue, hanging it near a window will cause the light to hit it differently than if it were hung in a darker corner of the room. The same goes for other colors as well!

Also, assess the kind of lights you have. You could place colorful bulbs into your table lamp or install a dramatic chandelier to change your ambiance with the click of a button.

  1. Get plants

Not only do plants add a splash of color, but they also purify the air and make any space feel more alive. If you have trouble keeping plants alive, consider getting some artificial ones that look just as good! No one will be able to tell the difference, and you’ll get to enjoy the beauty.

  1. Don’t shy away from hanging artwork

Hanging artwork is a great way to add color and personality to your space. If you’re not sure where to start, consider using one large piece or a series of smaller ones. You can also get creative with how you hang them!

For example, you could create a gallery wall using different-sized frames in coordinating colors. Or you could be hanging a few pieces at different heights to add visual interest.

There are endless possibilities when it comes to using color in your home décor, so don’t be afraid to get creative! These are just a few ideas to get you started. We hope you found this blog post helpful and that you feel inspired to start. As you experiment with color in your home, the most important thing is to have fun and let your personality shine through!
