Straying away from neutral colored palettes can be difficult. On the other hand, the main purpose of color is to give a space a new look. Yes, it’s a great way to implement your personality into your decor. How can you pull it off successfully?

  1. Using dark colors can add drama to any room. For instance, deep red walls creates a mood that dims down the brightness of your surroundings. In fact, such a color creates a closed in feeling and it also complements neutral colored furniture.

  2. Bright yellow is a bold color to use in your decor. The key to using this color in a stylish manner is to find furniture and upholstery that matches the wall. You can even try a floral print. Adding the color yellow to your decor is also known to add optimism and a positive vibe to your home!

  3. All colors aren’t stimulating. Forest green is a perfect color to use for homeowners who tend to shy away from color because it isn’t loud. Yes, forest green blends great with neutral or mahogany furniture. While the colors may contrast, together they give off a nature type vibe.

  4. Rooms painted a dark color can make a room recede or seem smaller. So if you’re goal is to visually increase the size of a room you should consider lighter shades.

  5. If you’re not sure about committing to painting your wall an intense color you can add color to various furniture pieces.

Just remember to be bold, have fun and enjoy reflecting your personality in your home decor!
