5 Fun Ways To Play With Colors Around The Home
Rule number one: don't be afraid to pair two bright hues!
From creating the illusion of a bigger space with neutrals or waking up a room with touches of neon, it's safe to say that color is a powerful tool when it comes to transforming any part of the home.
However, there are only so many available ways that you can experiment with different palettes. If you've run out of ideas on how to play with color, you've come to the right place—we've rounded up five new tricks that may inspire you to pick up a brush and a bucket of paint.
1. Don't be afraid to pair two bright hues.
One of the easiest ways to try out matching vibrant shades is through color-blocking. Start by picking out one color with warm undertones and another with hints of coolness to keep the look well-balanced—some great examples would be the combinations of turquoise blue plus deep purple, and crimson with navy.
2. Be bold and go with a single-shade theme.
If you aren't too keen about playing with multiple colors at once, you can still experiment with it by going for a monochromatic theme that isn't black and white. Liven up a tired living area with an invigorating pigment like orange. You can keep it from looking flat by using different shades varying from peach to rust.
3. Say goodbye to plain and white doors.
For those who have been thinking about giving the home a simple makeover that doesn't cost an arm and a leg, you can start by repainting your front door. Make a lasting impression on your guests by welcoming them with a color they won't forget. Don't know which shade to go with? Choose your favorite color!
4. Neon colors can be your best friend.
Contrary to popular belief, neon can be very easy to work with and it can create a hip and energetic vibe in any space. Introduce these highlighter-like colors to your spaces in small doses through accent chairs or captivating pieces of wall art.
5. Get creative with patterns.
If drenching your home in color isn't adventurous enough for you, take it to the next level by integrating it through prints and patterns. For those who are working with multiple designs, make sure it has a common thread—if you decide to go with lines, feel free to use stripes, plaid, and coiled lines (as seen in photo) together.
