Add bright colors to your decor – It’s a refreshing change for your interior look.

Get rid of the blahs in your house now that winter is over. Add bright and cheerful colors to lift your spirits and create a vibrant interior look!


  • Follow these tips to make sure your bright colors are energetic, but not chaotic:
  • Balance bright colors with white or black to make them pop.
  • For a softer look, complement bright tones with neutral beige, cream or gray.
  • Think complementary colors, one soft and one bold; for example, sage green with bright red or powder blue with electric orange.
  • Start with a favorite piece of art that has splashes of bright color and let that define your bright palette.

Bright colors add warmth and energy to a room. They actually make your house and your life feel more joyful! Your choice of bright colors in interior design elements is almost unlimited.

  • Zesty tropical shades like turquoise and hot pink
  • Primary tones of red, yellow and blue
  • Trendy colors like acid green and tangerine

Are you afraid to be so bold? “Just enough” is a good strategy for bright colors. So, if you’re nervous, start small – or start in a small room – with:

  • Painted walls
  • Throw pillows
  • Bed linens
  • Table settings
  • Accessories
  • Artwork

Feeling braver? You can add larger touches of bold in upholstery fabric, window coverings, rugs, wallcoverings and furniture.
