It’s easy to fall in love with all whites or neutrals, but when the weather turns warm, it’s worth taking a risk with bold and bright colors that reflect the season. Don’t worry — it’s easier than it looks! Read on to learn our top five tips to bringing color into your home.

Bedding: Since bedrooms are more private rooms than living rooms or dining rooms, it’s a little easier to take design risks without messing up the color scheme of an open floor plan. Try changing your bedding with the changing of the seasons! Fresh patterns, light fabrics and bright colors will give your bedroom a summery feel.

Pillows: Throw pillows are an easy, affordable way to instantly update your decor. Change things up for summer and choose a single accent color (Or more, if you’re feeling daring!) in different patterns to spice up your living room, bedroom, outdoor living space and more.

Art: Choosing art is harder than it looks. We know! Wall space is critical real estate in any home, and you want to make the right decision. But that doesn’t mean you have to play it safe — colorful, geometric patterns in classic frames can add an unexpected element to traditional and modern interiors.

Dishes and glassware: Give your entertaining a seasonal boost and switch out your white dishes for something a little more festive. Turquoise, bright yellow and bold coral are surprisingly flexible colors that work well at any summer dinner party.

Rugs: Don’t be afraid of using color on the floor! Brightly hued rugs help more neutral furniture stand out. Coordinate with the other textiles in the room, or mix and match patterns and colors for extra visual interest.
