While neutral hued interior designs are all the rage these days, some people prefer to use some fun color accents to make their homes more attractive and appealing. However, you cannot simply select a bold color palate and go nuts with it – there is an etiquette to using bold colors in a modern space. So further, we’ll be sharing 5 ways you can easily use fun color accents in your interior designs.
1. In small doses
The easiest way to use bold, contrast colors in your interior designs is in small doses. There is no need to apply them on large surfaces of your home. You can get the same effect by using them in small doses on important focal points of your space. a small outline of the media wall, some statement art pieces, area rug and a couch cushion or two are the perfect way to articulate your fun color scheme in small doses.
2. Going in-built
In-built furniture is another great opportunity for you to translate your bold color scheme. You can use furniture laminates with some contrastingly dark trimming to create a unique ambiance. The plum colored workstation in this image is the perfect example of bold color application through some distinct in-built furnishing design.
The basic idea of using bold colors in an interior design is to ensure that they stand out and create a great visual contrast within your space. So the best way to implement them is by pairing them up with dark colors within the same space. The cerulean and black furniture combo in this image is the perfect example of how you can do so with minimal effort.
4. Delivering impact
If you’re going for maximum impact with your color application, then it’s time to think bolder. The fun color you’ve chosen should be applied on a feature and accent wall of the room, and you can even further embellish it with some artwork or basic accessorizing. Just make sure that the color you’ve selected for such kind of an application is relatively dull. Neon’s and other bright hues can start feeling prickly in such huge amounts.
5. Use the furniture
You can also use the furniture upholstery to introduce a bold color contrast in your interior designs. It can be a bar stool fabric, the couch or even an accent chair. Note that it is crucial you keep such accents as minimal as possible. Using them in large amounts can break the contrast and ambiance of your space.
