Who doesn't love cake sprinkles? Use yellows, pinks, reds, and blues as accent colors in the different areas of the home! Choose colorful accessories to liven up a plain living area. Work with vibrant colored pillows, bold artworks, and an interesting rug.

Use green as an accent color in the living area or bedroom. Whenever you feel tired, this color can remind you of nature and lush landscapes. With this color at home, you can instantly feel refreshed after a long day at work.
