Sage Sayde Says…

 

Question:

My living room is decorated exclusively with neutral colors. The intention was to make the room serene and calm with everything off-white, cream and beige. I was told that these colors create a more elegant and high-end interior theme.

Fast forward 5 years and I simply find my living room boring, plain and uninspired. I’m dying to give the room a face-lift with some bright and energetic colors, but the process feels a little intimidating. I don’t want to make mistakes and end up with a room that looks juvenile. Please help!

Sage Sayde says:

I love color. I can’t bare to be in a boring, BLAH, beige room. I agree its time for an update for the most important room in your house!

Colorful decorating accents are a great way to add life and express yourself. I recommend you choose one strong color to integrate into your neutral room. Start with an accent wall, bright rug, throw pillows, club chairs or art…..update around 30% of the room with your chosen color.

Sticking to one color, (different shades are fine), will prevent the space from being too busy or overwhelming. I would choose PINK and use accents in fuchsia, blush and cotton candy shades. You can keep the look sophisticated by blending the colored items with your neutral bases. Here are some fantastic examples to inspire you. Please don’t hesitate to decorate with color. You will love the energy it brings to your home!

The photos below are great examples of fabulous living rooms that stick with one bright color. (Source: Pinterest)
