You can also choose colors on either side of the main color and work with the tones of that color. For Mele, using a combination of blue and white is like “wearing a white shirt with blue jeans, or a navy blue blazer and a white shirt”. It never goes out of style. The classic color scheme in interiors can be dressed in a similar way in an elegant or informal way.
In the living room, Mele used a distinctly cowboy-hued blue grass fabric on the walls to add color and texture, which helped highlight the silhouettes of the white accessories and side-back chairs. The overall effect is refined yet casual. Another very simple way to add color to your decor is to incorporate colorful cushions. They are relatively cheap and easy to decorate.
It's very easy to add them to your sofas, beds, and even decorative chairs. I usually buy mine at Target and have even made some with kitchen towels. Neutral kitchens are another place to add a cheerful touch of color. Choose bright bar stools or a painted island to create a pleasant snack area.
The bright colors of the kitchen encourage guests to come and chat while you prepare food. We love to unexpectedly see bright red, blue, yellow or green in the kitchen color scheme. Add a splash of color by accentuating a wall in your living room with a coat of paint. Look for a niche to add more color, or choose a larger wall that attracts attention.
Choose a bold, contrasting color for a fabric in your living room. Or, opt for a subtle accent by painting the wall in the same family of colors, but in a darker shade than the rest of the walls.
