To freshen up your home without being clumsy, all you need to do is place small color accents in the right places. The monochromatic minimalistic design has proven its practicality and unobtrusive beauty, but sometimes it tends to dilute it with colored spots. Here are some ideas on how to fulfill this desire and not overdo it.
1. Front door
Paint the front door a bright color; then, it will become the hallway’s main element. No other decorative elements are required.
2. Colored wall
To make the room vibrant, you do not need to repaint it entirely – one wall or even part of it will be enough. Contrast the wall that has a window or door. Or, for example, paint the partition between the windows in a bright color.
If you have a bed without a headboard, you can draw one. To do this, paint the part of the wall behind the bed. If you have a headboard, you can draw a wide contrasting strip above it to give the whole room an expression. Or you can upholster the headboard with a textured fabric of a rich tone.
4. Multi-colored chairs
Chairs of the same shape but different colors will not disturb the harmony of the room and, at the same time, will give it a naughty mood.
Take out the shelves and paint the back wall a bright color. When the paint is dry, put the shelves back in. Both books and various decorative items will look great in such a cabinet.
6. Furniture with legs
Furniture legs painted in a bright color look very impressive and original. The room will immediately become more fun, and at the same time, you do not risk overloading it with color.
7. Kitchen rugs
A bright rug can set the tone for an entire kitchen. And if it is made of several contrasting squares, then you can not be afraid to spill red wine on it or drop a berry – a spoiled fragment can be easily replaced.
8. Kitchen cabinets
Replacing all the doors of kitchen cabinets with colored ones is not cheap, but you can only change the hanging cabinets’ doors or, conversely, only the lower facades.
9. Garden furniture
Bright garden furniture also looks great indoors. And if it’s also foldable, you can add and remove these colored pieces of furniture whenever you like.
Colored blankets are good because they can be used to dose the amount of color in the interior – they can be unfolded, rolled up, or completely removed if tired.
