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.

If you are tired of white walls, you can color your walls with paint that will remind you of cheesecakes. Consider neutral colors or a light yellowish hue for your bedroom or family room.

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.

For a rustic touch at home, take inspiration from this palette. Invest in wooden touches and an unexpected touch of lavender or light purple. You can also use this color for your soft furnishings in the bedroom.
