Color (and pattern for that matter) bring personality, customization and liveliness to a space. Whether you love color or tend to stick with the neutral staples, this post will help you incorporate color into your space in ways that you may not have thought of before.
On the floor or the wall – pack a punch in your space with some patterned and (or) colored tile! The tile shown below is actually wood, a super unique element! Check out other drool-worthy wood tiles at Mirth Studio (obsessed doesn’t even cover it).
I’m sure you’ve seen navy cabinetry all over Pinterest. This is a PSA that you can paint your kitchen cabinets, bathroom vanities, butlers pantry/bar cabinets, bookcases and all other built-ins ANY color! Pastels are fun for kids’ spaces, moody hunter green or even deep burgundy is gorgeous for home offices. And there are so many possibilities for kitchens!
There are so many avenues that you can explore with wallpaper. In this instance, the point is to add color and pattern, however there are plenty of wallcoverings that are subdued, textural and still extremely delicious (hello, grasscloth!).

Upholstery and Furniture
Okay, these pink swivel chairs may take it a bit too far for some, but you get the idea. Make a statement with colored upholstery and casegoods (or both!). Most people keep their large pieces neutral and spice things up with the surrounding elements (I’m in this category for the most part), but incorporating color on your sofa or chairs is a game changer.
This one seems obvious, but there are still so many options with paint. You can paint full walls, accent walls, ceilings, just paint the trim an accent color, painting doors accent colors, and so much more. If you’re on a budget, but you’re looking to bring in some excitement, start here!

I’m a sucker for a good, colorful rug. Rugs have the magic power of adding so much personality, pattern, texture and color into any space. Runners liven up hallways while large rugs really bring a pop to a living room. They take up so much surface area in most rooms that this is really a no brainer.
When your home is neutral and you’re limited on budget, start bringing in the color with accessories. This is also a good option if you’re a bit afraid to dip your toe in the “colorful pond.” You’d be surprised at how much personality can be brought in with a few coffee table books, pillows and vases!
