A Blank Slate

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 above, this bedroom has neutral features (walls, curtains and bedding), but its charm is accentuated by complementary colorful accents such as the pillow and rug. Accents like rugs, pillows, curtains and flowers can give a neutral room a splash of color for a fresh and interesting look.

Alternatively, if you have a vibrant paint color that you love but don't want it to clash with your decor, try using white and beige home accents to break up the color, allowing it to pop without being overwhelming.

Earthy Tones

Warm, earthy tones are perfect for a comfortable farmhouse look or a rustic living space, where natural materials can take center stage. Wood, leather and metals can bring out the richness of your kitchen, family room or dining room, creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Think about coordinating brown, tan or mustard yellow with 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 have wonderful results, if done with care. Choose a bold, matching pattern for your placemats, table runner and chair pads to make a unified statement in your kitchen or dining room. 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 the same technique in a family room, den or office, staring with a bold patterned wallpaper, chair cushions or statement furniture pieces. The most important thing to remember when decorating with color and patterns is this: if you love it, it works
