Vintage looks and bright colors are making their mark. By adding color, whether it be a statement piece of jewelry or a fresh coat of paint to your living space, you can completely transform any look from ordinary to extraordinary. The first step to overcoming your fear of color is to decide how you want your space to make you feel. While yellow hues can make you feel energized and refreshed, blues and greens can help you to feel calm and relaxed.
Colors can also affect your mood so try keeping calm neutral colors in rooms like your bedroom and bathroom. And don’t be afraid of mixing and matching colors either. Mixing warm and cool tones can create an chic look, just be careful not to go over the top.
Pair orange and blue to tone down the brightness of orange. Something as simple as wearing a chunky orange necklace with an otherwise neutral look can create a bold statement. By pairing similar hues you can also create a sophisticated palette.
If you’re not ready to go bold, try adding a contrasting color to a neutral palette. Throw pillows in a metallic blue or purple can easily complement neutral rooms.
