How To Add Color To Your Home

on Monday, I talked about how to add color to your home over at Chic Modern Vintage. Adding color to your home, can be as simple or complicated as you want. You can start simple, or go all out.

Below, you can see fore easy, and one complicated way to add color to your home. The last and fifth option, is the one that's the most complicated, and you may require some help from a professional. The other ones are easy to achieve.

Colors usually bring life to a home, but they can also make it disharmonious and "noisy".  There's several ways and degrees of adding color, and I'm going to take you through a few of them :)

1. Colorful furniture - neutral background


Jewel toned furniture combined with a completely neutral backgrund, makes the home stylish and contemporary with a touch of Scandinavian Maximalism.

2. Colorful Artwork - neutral furniture


Colorful artwork combined with neutral furniture adds instant interest, and a very "easy to achieve" focal point of the room.

3. Colorful Wallpaper - neutral furniture

We all love Chinoiserie wallpapers, and even though they're wonderfully maximalistic and colorful, they can bring a stunning harmony to a home. Here with Danish mid century pieces.

4. Colorful walls 


There's no solution as simple or cheap as paint. I love the eclectic vibe of this home. Can you imagine how boring it would look with white walls? PS - the dark blue light fixture enhances the color of the wall and makes it even prettier :)

5. All out!


Here we're talking color on all surfaces! This home is moody, eclectic with a very European feel to it

Jewel tones again. Very easy to combine, they almost always look good together.

Good look on adding colors to your home!! :)

I painted our bedroom with Blue angel similar to above with everything else white and light grey carpets and it is divine.
