Color can instantly enhance the atmosphere of any room in your home. From neutrals to vivid hues, varying shades to bold patterned pigments, there are a variety of ways to make color work for your style. Experiment in a single room, or get creative throughout the house with furniture, accessories, paint and more.

    A great way to decorate with color is by choosing a neutral base, and then incorporating bold patterns or vibrant accents that don't overwhelm a room but still catch your eye. As seen to the right, this bedroom has neutral features (walls, curtains and bedding), but its charm is accentuated by complementary colorful accents (flowers, plants, a decorative pattern on the quilt). Rugs, accent pillows, curtains and even flowers can give any room a fresh and colorful look.

    Alternatively, if you have a loud paint color that you love but don't want to accentuate with bright decor, using white and beige home accents will chop up the color, making it look more toned down.

    These are perfect for a farmhouse look or a rustic living space, where natural materials in their original states take center stage. Wood, leather and even some metals can bring out the richness of your kitchen, family room or dining room, creating a warm yet put-together atmosphere. Think about using browns, tans, mustard yellows and coordinate with a deep burgundy, red or dark blue.

    Go Bold In Your Home

    Decorating with bright colors and patterns can be a little intimidating, but it certainly can be done. In a kitchen or dining room, choose a bold, matching pattern for your placemats, table runner and chair pads to make a statement that is complementary. In a bedroom, opt for a decorative, colorful quilt or bedding collection, and then incorporate decor that features matching colors for a cohesive look. Use this same technique in a family room, den or office where you use a bold patterned wallpaper, chair cushions or statement furniture pieces.
