One of the best ways to express your personality is through your own home, and there’s no better tool to utilize than color. Whether you’re a vibrant hues enthusiast or a neutral toned lover, a pop of color can make all the difference in your home by adding the perfect amount of personal touch. From throw pillows to wall decor and everything in between, set the tone and brighten the mood in your home by incorporating new and fun colors.
At Symphony Farms, we’re here to help you get started on your self-expression journey by giving you a few tips when it comes to adding color into your home without having to do a total overhaul. Easily liven and brighten up your space with these creative and simple ways to add a pop of color into your home.
Start with a neutral color palette
When adding pops of color to your home, it’s important to look at your current color palette. It’s a good idea to try and keep the overall tone of your home neutral when incorporating new colors, as you don’t want any clash or overkill to occur. If you already have pops of color, figure out which hues will go best with what you already have—for example, if you find yourself having a few dark green pops of color, think about adding gold or burnt orange for additional accents.
If you’re wanting a total refresh, store your current accent pieces elsewhere in case you want to switch your colors out again in the future, and start with brand new hues. Find color palette inspiration online, and use your own creativity to come up with a few pigments for pops of color, from navy blue and peach to sage green and gray and everything in between.
Add an accent wall
A great way to add a pop of color into your interior simply requires a can of paint, a brush and just one wall. An accent wall is an extremely creative way to incorporate a pop of color without too much risk or commitment involved. Start by picking out a wall in whichever room you choose, and analyze which color you want to pick. If you’re going for a brighter, uplifting color, check out vibrant paint colors—and if you’re looking for a calming, relaxed color, explore your muted color options. It’s always a good idea to try out multiple paint swatches and decide which color speaks to you the most after a few days. A little bit of color can go a long way, and an accent wall is a great place to start when it comes to adding a colorful design into your home.
If you’re wanting the creativity of an accent wall for much less work, there are tons of peel and stick wallpaper options available—from solid colors to fun patterns and more. To take it even further, base any other accent pieces off of the color of your wall for a more cohesive, monochrome take on a pop of color. If you’re wanting more, find out which shades compliment your accent wall and incorporate them into your newfound color palette—and let your creativity shine.
Choose a statement piece
For a simple way to make a statement in any room of your home, a colorful piece of decor or furniture is a great place to start. From antique shops to department stores, there are endless places that have unique items available for a great addition to your home. Just like in an outfit, a statement piece can go a long way and serve as a perfect way to incorporate a pop of color. Whether it’s a bright velvet chair in your living room or a patterned lamp in your office, a statement piece is a great way to tie your color palette all together and seal the deal for that pop of color.
Additionally, adding a pop of color to a room could be as simple as discovering your taste in art. Art can go a long way when it comes to adding colorful designs into your home, and you can add multiple wall decor pieces with your choice of hues and prints for one massive accent piece. Creating a gallery on your wall can create a perfect pop of color, and it’s a great way to bring your color palette to life. Even if you seek to go a more traditional route and show off family photos, a bright frame can draw attention to the moments and memories that you treasure.
Pay attention to the fabrics
When bringing color into any room in your home, it’s a good idea to look at the fabrics surrounding you. Try adding colorful or patterned throw pillows that have similar hues to the bed or couch, and change up your white or neutral comforter with a brighter option. Drape a saturated throw over the foot of the bed that matches the shades of your pillows, or switch out the rug under your table or sofa with a more pigmented, patterned version for a quick and easy pop of color. Even just a couple of different fabrics with color spread throughout your rooms can really draw the eye in and improve the overall tone and mood of your home. It’s a quick and easy way to add a pop of color, and the creative freedom is all in your hands.
