The current trend of designing your home with greys, grey-ishes and now greiges (a grey-beige mix) may make it more difficult to be inspired to add a pop of color to your living space. But at Scott V. Sells K.C., we love seeing pops of color when we show Kansas City area homes – and so do our buyers! Try starting with small with an out-of-the-way, made-for-color room like a kid’s bedroom or entertainment room, then think about it throughout the house.
Here are four ideas to help you get started:
1. Customize Your Interior
There’s no need to go shopping for something new-use what you have. Don’t be afraid to add a bright green picture frame and add in a couple of colorful pillows, artwork and rugs that complement the decor. Suddenly-you’re a master at color! Our friends at Apartment Therapy offer a tour of The Most Colorful Home in London (Possibly the World) for further inspiration.
2. Make a Statement
Dramatic color can help you make a bold statement in your home. Find the perfect accent wall in your home that visitors will see as they first enter your house. Paint color says a lot about someone’s personality-make your favorite shade speak for you.
3. Start a Collection
4. Stop to Smell the Flowers
Flowers go with anything. By adding flowers to your home, you can instantly add a pop of color to any room and the beautiful scents of fresh flowers are just a bonus. Don’t make it hard, shop local or just pick up a bouquet the next time you take a trip through your grocery store. Or, grab some nice-looking silk flowers and plants that can do the trick all-year round.
