Try these 10 creative ways to liven up your interiors just by adding some fun splashes of color to your decor.
💚 Hang bold artwork – I love brining in bright pops of color with artwork. It’s a great way experiment with color without a huge commitment (like you would make with a bold paint color). If you like to change up things frequently, this is a great way to keep things interesting and easy to switch out.
💛 Add colorful accessories – Using colorful accessories can be fun. It also can be tricky. Be sure your colors are coordinating and not clashing. I like to keep my bold, bright colors to a minimum of 2-3 in each room. This ensures your room remains soothing, relaxing and cohesive.
💚 Embrace colorful wallpaper – Wallpaper is back my friend, embrace it! Wallpaper is a great option for an accent way or hall bathroom. They don’t it make it like they used to (which is a good thing). Changing out will take a bit of effort if you change your mind but at least your sheet rock will remain in tact with the new products. Try a peel and stick if you aren’t quiet sure you are ready to fully commit long-term.
💛.Brighten up with throw pillows – Throw pillow cover change out is a quick and inexpensive way to add a pop of color. If you find a style you like, I recommend ordering at least one other color. This will give you an accessible option when you need a change. (Amazon is my go to for pillow covers. These are one of my favorite styles.)
💚 Incorporate fresh flowers – If maintaining fresh flowers is too much for you, purchase some vibrant artificial floral. You’ll find many different colors and textures that coordinate well together. I recommend taking your vase when purchasing artificial floral. Hobby Lobby has the best deal with 1/2 floral every 2-3 weeks. Check their weekly sales ad before heading to the store.
💛 Switch up your fabrics – Switching up fabrics can be done by reupholstering a worn chair or ottoman. Consider this before considering tossing it to the curb and replacing with something new (especially if the piece hold sentimental value or is super-comfortable).
💚 Get a bright area rug – Rugs are a great way to anchor a space and add a lot of “cozy” to a room. Check the pile height to be sure it’s right for the space and the function. I love shopping for rugs at my local discount stores (Sam’s Club is a great option) but when I need to go online, Rugs.com is one of my go-to stores.
💛 Reflect color with mirrors – Use mirrors sparingly but use them for sure! When you are hanging a mirror, you should pay close attention to what will be reflected in the view and not only where the mirror itself looks good on the wall. Antique stores are a great place to find some unique mirrors. If you are up for it, you can change out the antique look with some paint.
💚 Paint an accent wall – This isn’t may favorite options, but it’s an option none-the-less. As you’ve probably heard me say before, “paint is an inexpensive way to may a huge impact”. Choose your color wisely or you could be making an impact you weren’t expecting to make.
💛 Bring in some live greenery – Plants (live or artificial) bring life to any space. Any chance you have to bring the outdoors in is an opportunity to bring in the feeling of relaxation and peace. And who doesn’t need more of that in their life?
Now that you have 10 creative ways to liven up your space with color, it’s time to starting infusing your space!
