Use a huge vase to test a new color in your room. I enjoy the big dimensions and different shapes of the Morph Vase from HomeDecorators.

Reupholster portion of a favourite accent chair. Recover only the chair if it could be removed, or add a fun pattern to the back of a chair. I love adding a blueprint to only component of a chair. The pattern adds a trendy vibe without being overpowering.

Reupholster only the back cushions of your neutral couch. If you have loose back cushions, have them recovered at a colorful patterned or solid fabric. You’ll get a designer look without needing to get a new couch.

White walls can feel stark. Bring in color and texture by hanging out a huge piece of art like this one called Second City. Large extended canvas art can be moderately priced and not as hefty as large glass-covered framed art.

Try something as simple as adding a colorful tray to the middle of your coffee table or ottoman. I like the colors of the Lacquer Wood trays at West Elm. For large coffee tables, then get two to put side by side.

Pick a colorful ottoman as your coffee table. Or slipcover the one you have. Center it in the middle of your dialog area. It turns into the enjoyable pop!

Bring only a bit of color to your neutral drapes by adding a ring to the bottom of your strong neutral drapes. I enjoy going up 30 inches at an 8- or 9-foot large distance.
Add color to your chairs using a bold-hued pillow. Try out a 20″x20″ pillow cover using a feather insert. It stays in place better than a smaller pillow and adds nice big color through only one piece.

Add greenery. A tall indoor plant brings in a bit of lush color and odor. Request a plant specialist that will help you pick out the right plant so you know how to take care of it.

Drape a colorful throw over a couch back or chair for a color extract. Also consider draping down it the middle of the couch.
Paint a accent wall. It will add excitement to the space. Pick a wall that houses has dramatic artwork, showcases an important bit of furniture, or has an intriguing architectural detail you can highlight. In a long narrow room, the very best wall to paint would be the farthest short wall. The color will draw your attention to it, which makes the wall appear closer to you.
Bring in a fresh lamp base that has a vibrant color. Crate & Barrel’s Boka lamps have yummy color options. Or try spray painting your lamp base for a new finish from the color of your own choice.

You can bring the floor to life with color, also. Utilize a large patterned rug so the color comes through in a larger scale.

Insert a garden feces in one of numerous colorful finishes and shapes you can get these days. Strive two side by side for more color and additional seating. They can be moved to wherever you want them.
