Dark Light

When designing and decorating your home, do you continuously find yourself drawn to a particular color palette or style? This can be the way for most of us, as, over time, it is easy to acquire a specific taste and design style that you prefer when it comes to your home layout and design.

But when you’re ready to try something new, where do you start? An easy way to update your space and add a little excitement is to add pops of color to your home! This mainly works well if you find your home to have more of a neutral color scheme, as sometimes, you need a bit of color to change the room’s look!


 For an easy and temporary solution for brightening your space, consider floral, either faux or fresh, and use them around the home. Using flowers in your design adds a certain amount of color and texture to your space without becoming overwhelming and can give your room a designer feel without much work. You can use fresh flowers in bright vases to add a pop to a neutral space, or for a more long-term idea, consider adding faux florals that can be moved around from room to room when you’re ready for a change.

Area Rugs

 Whether your home has carpet or flooring, area rugs can bring a significant amount of color in and warmth and comfort. Using an area rug in the central part of your home is a great way to play with color in your space and add a little extra layer of design to your room without being too upfront. Try to choose a colored rug that accents your existing pieces, and don’t be afraid to get bold with what color you want!


 While it may seem like a no-brainer to add color to your room through artwork, it can be easy to shy away from bold prints that may look great in your space! Not only will bold but colorful art also brings a bright pop of color to your home; it will call attention to itself and give guests and family something to focus on when they enter the room. Consider prints with reds, pinks, blues, and greens to make a statement and brighten up your design place!

Throw Pillows

When you aren’t sure about adding color to your space, you want to make sure you choose temporary items that can be changed out if you decide it is no longer working for you. One great way to add color temporarily is by adding playful throw pillows to your couch that will add a colorful punch to the room of your choice. This way, you can easily change your design as much as you would like and change the color in your space. Consider mixing different colors and shades to brighten up your room and bring some fun into the design.

Statement Piece

 Lastly, when you want to add some bold color to your space, why not do so with a statement piece? This can be anything from a royal blue couch to a robust red chair, but whatever you choose, make sure you take the time to think about it before purchasing. This is important because it can be more natural to tire of bold colors, so it’s essential to find a balance between a bright punch of color and a piece that still works with your overall room long-term. However, once you find that perfect piece for your room, don’t forget to accent it with smaller items around the whole place to pull the look together.
