DECORATING WITH COLOR: A LITTLE, A LOT, OVER-THE-TOP

Whether you are a die-hard lover of all things neutral or could live your best life beneath a rainbow, color in any amount is always a good idea. It adds an extra dash of dimension and joy wherever it appears. The best way to figure out how much color in a room is right for you? Experiment!

A Little …

Start with just a little bit of color in light pastel tones like blush, periwinkle and sky blue. These subtle touches will still add a bit of contrast to a neutral color palette without making too much of a splash. The addition of these tones in wall art, decorative pillows or accent pieces like vases, will liven up your space without going overboard.

A Lot …

Feeling more adventurous? Pair a neutral foundation, like a couch, with bold pillows in richer colors such as coral and blue to make a room really begin to pop. Add an accent chair in a more muted tone to bring a bit more color into the equation. Turn up the volume on a piece of wall art with saturated hues, and you’re set for visual harmony.

Over-the-Top…

Ready to go bright? No color is off limits when it comes to embracing the bold. We love a funky accent like the yellow Soho Swivel Chair, paired with coffee table decor in primary colors to really wake up the room. Why not add a tropical palm frond to keep things fresh? Whether you paint the walls a rich jewel tone, or add more color with a work of art – go big or go home.
