A bright home equals a happy home! Some modern interior design styles can be quite cold and sterile. Just look at minimalism! So even if you do plump for a very chic decor, you should also remember to include plenty of bursts of color to liven things up and add some comfort. Some people can be quite wary of adding too much color to their rooms as it can often come off as quite gaudy. However, if you stick to these five ways of adding color, you can do it so it looks super elegant.
Cushions and Blankets
Putting cushions and blankets on your sofas and armchairs is a fantastic way of adding color. Even if you have dark furniture, you can really go to town with the colors of your additions. Not only do blankets and cushions add an extra vibrancy to your decor, but they can also make a room very comfortable. There’s nothing better than snuggling up on the sofa under a soft blanket! Don’t forget; you can also add more color to your bathroom and bedroom with your choice of towels and linen. A popular choice is martex sheets.
Wallpaper comes in many bright and vibrant colors and patterns. It’s a great way to add some personality to your decor, and you don’t just have to use it to cover your walls! Mix things up a bit and wallpaper the inside of your kitchen cabinets. Then, whenever you open the cabinet door, you’ll unleash a quick burst of pattern. One great tip is to wallpaper just the one wall of a room. This creates a focal point that you can design the rest of your room around.
Use Natural Materials
Natural materials are a fantastic way to brighten up your home. Using lots of wood will also add a great rustic charm to your interiors. Bring in flowers and plants for extra color and also a fresh, floral fragrance! Using more natural material will also help you create an eco-friendly home. Try to replace all plastics with natural materials for a truly green home.
Would you rather keep your trendy interior fairly minimal? If so, you may not be so keen on cluttering your space with cushions or using natural materials. You can keep your rooms tidy and free from clutter and still add color. One way is to hang bright curtains and drapes at the windows. If you choose a bold color for your curtains, they will stand out against an otherwise neutral decor. They’ll also create a great conversation piece whenever you have visitors.
Statement furniture is often items in quirky styles and can also use cutting-edge materials. But you don’t have to be so brave when choosing a statement piece. Simply pick an armchair that is much brighter than your other furniture in the room. As long as it stands out, it’s making a statement!
Now you’ve seen you can add color without going too wild; you may want to start redecorating your home right now!
