When it comes to fashion, we naturally gravitate towards more color during the spring and summer seasons. Why shouldn’t the same apply to your home? Admittedly, my own home is very neutral heavy but I thought that a few injections of color could really go a long way. In fact, adding splashes of more vibrant hues here and there can bring a new life and energy to your surroundings. I wanted to explore some creative and tasteful ways to add a pop of color to your home without necessarily having to do a major overhaul (because let’s be honest, we don’t all have the time and commitment). By all means, keep the same furnishings in your space but consider adding in some accent colors with a touch of decor or an addition of a throw pillow. Without further ado, here are 5 stylish ways to add a pop of color to your space.
Stylish Ways to Add a Pop of Color to Your Home
Throws and Decorative Pillows
One of the easiest methods to adding a pop of color into your home is to play with textiles. This doesn’t require a major investment of fresh new decor and furniture, but still manages to make a space feel brand new. This can be applied in multiple places in the home too. For starters, consider exchanging your decorative pillows on your sofa for something with a cheery pop of color. You can also drape a coordinating throw blanket over your couch, too. The same can be said for the bedroom! Interchange some of your bed decor with new colorations for a major switch up.
Art and Wall Decor
If the art on your walls has been feeling a little stale lately, consider swapping them out seasonally. While many artwork is seasonless, it does make a huge difference in refreshing your space. For the approaching summer season, shop for canvases with the use of bold colors. Or if you are more of a realistic fan, consider procuring pictures of summery locations, objects, and more. Need ideas?? I got you covered on plenty of summer-centric art below.
Drinkware and Dinnerware
Something you might not think about is actually your drinkware and dinnerware. If you are an avid at-home diner, you might grow to love the idea of a complete table refresh. Of course, there are varying degrees of levels. You can completely rework your setting by opting for a new dinnerware set. Or you can take it slowly by interchanging your flatware from stainless steel to gold or integrating some tinted wine glasses into the mix.
Similarly, the same can be done with your table linens! A nice, colored table cloth can immediately transform a dining room. Or if you are not a table cloth or table runner kind of person, consider investing in some linen napkins for a nice change. Although it seems like a minute detail, you will be surprised at how different your dinner table looks. This is a great way to step up your hosting game, too!
While I fully admit that swapping out your huge area rug in the living room can be pretty daunting, the same can’t be said for smaller accent rugs. In fact, it’s rather quite easy. Think your kitchen mat or maybe even the rugs in your bathrooms. For the summer season, try your hand at colored accent rugs to add a fun splash of color. You’ll be surprised at how much personality a fun accent rug will add to your home.
