There are many people out there who love the idea of color, but tend to play it safe with neutrals. Decorating with neutrals is safe, timeless and chic, but the key is finding a way to make the neutral palette look fresh and exciting.
When thinking of color ask yourself how you want to feel when you enter your home. Color is so closely tied to emotion, so it’s only natural to add in colors that you can live with in harmony. Do you want to feel energized and stimulated? Then you’ll likely be looking for bold vibrant colors. Do you want to be soothed and nurtured at the end of a long day? Then you’d be more drawn to muted tranquil tones. By asking yourself how you want to feel is an important question when looking for ways to add color into your home.
Once you’ve decided how you want to feel, then it’s easy to pick a color or colors and build from there. Here are 8 ways to incorporate them into your home.
1. START WITH SOFT HUES
If you’re ready to move on from a totally safe color palette, start working in soft colors slowly. Soft hues will add a different perspective to your space without seeming too out of place with your room’s existing calm neutrals.
2. INTRODUCE A SINGLE BOLD ACCENT COLOR
A single color can be introduced into a neutral space in a beautifully controlled dose, enabling your space to feel cohesive, yet understated.
3.CHOOSE BRIGHT ACCESSORIES
A grouping of like-colored accessories can add an impactful and non-permanent pop of interest to your space. Should you later decide your chosen color is not your thing anymore, the pieces can be easily switched out.
4. OPT FOR A COLORFUL RUG
Incorporate a rug with a colorful pattern or details to add some interest underfoot. The fact that it’s underfoot makes it a bit more subtle, plus you can take cues from your rug’s colors to add a few accents around the room.
5. GO WITH A SATURATED TEXTILE
A single pattern or colored piece can make a real statement in a neutral space. Bold, colorful accent pillows never fail to bring fresh color into a mostly neutral space.

6. GET ARTISTIC
If you prefer to keep your furnishings and accessories monochromatic, introduce color through artwork and photography. Keeping the surroundings simple will allow your artistic pieces to take center stage.
7. INCORPORATE FLOWERS AND PLANTS
A colorful floral arrangement or house plant will add not only an organic element to your space, but a vibrant hue as well.
8. CHOOSE A SINGLE STATEMENT PIECE
If you really just prefer a neutral space but are brave enough to add that special zing to your space, bring in color and make a statement with a single saturated piece of furniture.
