Maybe you’ve already tried a variety of ways to add eye-catching color into your home. Like statement furniture, new curtains, and perhaps even a plant or two. Yet if you feel as though you’re still missing that pop of brightness, here are a few ways you can bring colorful home décor into your space.
You might not think of your stairs as the “main character” for home décor, but they can be as beautiful as they are practical. Consider painting the banisters a brighter shade than the spindles—or vice versa—to give your space a much-needed pop of color. Or think about giving the stairs themselves a makeover, by selecting beautifully patterned carpet or fresh, new hardwood to adorn each step.
What are plants without gorgeous homes of their own? Break out your terracotta pots and plain vases, because it’s time to decorate. Using lively shades of acrylic or spray paint, give your plant holders the makeover they deserve. You can even go wild with stencils and chalk. For optimal color selection, see which hues pair best with the plants you’re growing. After all, green is always in style.
Need to add some pizzazz to your kitchen? Hang some hooks above your kitchen counter, and then let boldly colored coffee mugs dangle from them for a whole new way to organize. You can even mix and match mug shades to create patterns. Plus, if you have room and the space to do so, you can prop up your plates for a similar display. Adding these colorful accents to your kitchen will give it a whole new look.
Don’t forget about your kitchen walls. A new backsplash can do wonders. Find brightly colored tile to make the room pop, and then style it accordingly. Go ceramic aqua, navy checkered, or even multi-colored. No matter the selection, your backsplash will draw the eye and make your kitchen feel brand-new.
Gallery walls are all the rage right now. They’re a great way to display your best memories and liven up empty space in your home. Not to mention, they’re pretty easy to assemble. Start by printing your chosen photos and gathering a variety of colorful frames. Once you’ve put those together, use a measuring tape, adhesive, and a keen eye to place the frames to your liking. The result? Your new favorite wall.
So when you’re ready to mix things up in the color department, give these ideas a try. Soon, the colors in your home will match the liveliness of the people in it.
