Many homeowners play it safe when it comes to colors, which is why it’s common to see neutral or monochromatic tones in many homes. While a clean, minimalist approach never goes out of style, it can quickly turn any room into a drab and boring chamber if the is no splash of color here and there.
Fortunately for you homeowners with an aversion to risk, there are easy and inexpensive ways to add pops of color in every room. Here are our favorite ideas.
If you’re experimenting with colors for the first time, adding artwork to a neutral room is a safe way to brighten up any space. Using artistic pieces lets you add personality and subtly fill the room with its missing colors. Bold color patterns that would’ve been hard to pull off in other areas also work great with neutral walls.
Some may think choosing artwork is tricky, but you don’t need to overthink it. Head on over to Ava’s Attic for their wide selection of art pieces and choose the ones that speak to you the most.
Accentuate the Floor
If you think art should be limited to the walls, think again. Area rugs instantly add color and texture in an otherwise uninspired room. Rugs also help define space and anchor the furniture together.
Bold, patterned rugs work especially well with large pieces of neutral-colored furniture. If you’re worried about cohesiveness, simply choose a color from your rug and add a few small accessories to match.
Colorful rugs such as this one are also excellent in filling empty space if you have bare floors.
Be Bold With Your Chairs
Another way to add a splash of color is by using a large piece of furniture like the sofa as the focal point in a monochromatic room. But if you’re hesitant about picking a bright color for your big-ticket items, you can always update your chairs. Not only is this a more affordable approach, but you can easily bring them over to another room if you ever want to switch things up.
You can find lots of colorful chairs in Ava’s Attic, like this pair of adorable Chinese Chippendales that will help bring life to any nook.
Add in Those Throws
There’s no easier way to add pops of color in a lonely room than by using throw pillows. Accent pillows are so great because they provide just the right amount of hue to liven things up without going overboard. They’re also great for pulling a particular color scheme together.
Pro tip: Prepare several pillow covers so that you can easily change colors when you want to try something else. By regularly switching up, you’ll be able to train your eyes and be more aware of what colors work together.
Whether it’s floral, geometric, or inspirational you’re looking for, you can find a wide variety of throw pillows at Ava’s Attic.
