It’s common for people to think that when you decorate with bold colors such as bright oranges, blues and purples it may come across as loud or in your face, but when done right it can actually bring a room to life and give it personality. We’ve gathered numerous ways to decorate a space with bold colors in a subtle yet electrifying way that will add a little pizzazz to the room!
paint a statement wall
If you’re looking to incorporate your favorite bright color into your home’s design but don’t want to grow tired of the color over time, painting a statement wall might be the perfect amount for you. Pick a wall that makes sense – whether it’s across from windows to highlight the color or in a dark corner to brighten the area, this wall will quickly become your favorite in the room.
add a statement furniture piece
Not sure if you can commit to an entire wall? Adding a statement piece of furniture in a bold color can be a great way to compromise. This piece of furniture will stand out and become a talking piece in the room, all the while ensuring you don’t get sick of the color too quickly.
decorate with a bright rug
Another fun and easy way to add a pop of color to the room is with a bright, patterned rug. This allows you to spice up the room, without completely indulging in an expensive furniture piece or painting an entire wall. Enjoy the rug for as long as you like, and then switch it out with a new color combo the next year!
paint a smaller room
If you want to go all out with a bold color but are afraid to devote a larger room to only one color, a great way to test out the color first is by painting a smaller room such as the laundry room or bathroom! That way you can get a better feel for the color, without overwhelming your home with too much of it at first. Who knows, you may be happy with just the smaller room or you may end up decorating your whole house that color. Either way, you’ll have a better idea of how much of the color you can handle.
explore bold window treatments
A subtle way to decorate with bold colors is through your curtains. Not only will they act as a statement piece in the room, but you can open and close them depending on the time of day – allowing you to control exactly how much of the color is shown!
decorate with accent pieces
Lastly, if you really aren’t comfortable committing to a bold color in a major way, you can always incorporate small accent pieces to give the room just a splash of color. Great accents pieces include pillows, lamps, coasters and other decorative pieces like sculptures! With an array of accent pieces strategically placed around the room, you’ll be able to mix your favorite bold color into the space without worrying about it being too loud for your taste.
Now that you know all of the ways you can decorate with bold colors, it’s time to get to decorating! If you’re interested in replacing your window treatments, we’d love if you’d consider the possibilities with us at ABC Blind & Drapery.
