Feeling bored with a neutral palette but too scared to commit? Want the freedom of an all white or creamy backdrop but itching for a bit of zest? I get it.
In fact, I have this fear with my wardrobe, which consists of mainly solids in navy, browns, grays, ivory and black. Somehow, I simply can not get myself to wear color on my body. Every time I put it on, I take it off and revert back to my comfort zone.
My solution to this, and something that can easily be applied to the home, is the idea of small but powerful color pops. This allows me to have a slice of fun, but not be swathed in it. In my wardrobe, it usually takes the form of a bright shoe or a piece of costume jewelry in a bold color. Even a crazy shade of nail polish can do it for me. So, how can you achieve this in your home without too much effort? Easy, here’s how:
A picture says it all: the yellow stools (which, by the warm can be swapped out for anything else easily and affordably).
A sliver of a leading edge on the drapery and small fuschia pillows hint at color without overdoing it..

Tired of yellow, swap it out for green, blue or purple.
Same theme, different room, and switch out the yellow for the pink and orange.
What a difference an orange towel makes. Imagine it blue or acid yellow.
