1. Find Your Inspiration
Before you completely revamp your space, take some time to get familiar with what you like. Start by looking at inspirational images of homes you love, & Start a folder of some kind and refer back to them to see what you are consistently saving. Based on the images you've compiled, try to determine a common color palette for yourself and use that as your basis as you start to add color into your interiors.
2. Start With One Color
Adding more color to your home doesn't have to mean adding the entire rainbow. Just keep it simple. Pick a color and commit, choosing one color and creating a monochromatic look is easy and elegant. If you love the color blue, for example, you can start incorporating shades of blue into your home, while still keeping other aspects neutral. Pick a color that makes you happy when you come into your home.
3. Utilize Small Decor Items
If you're not ready for any big changes, start by swapping some small decor items for more colorful alternatives. Coffee table books are a great way to add color. You can also try out lamps and lamp shades for those who are particularly hesitant around color in design, try using pillows as a super-easy, low-lift way to incorporate more color.
4. Go Big With Wallpaper or Paint
If you are ready for more of a transformation, however, paint and wallpaper can make a big impact. This is one of the biggest ways you can transform a room in our opinion.
Paint can feel like a big commitment, but, it's one of the less expensive ways to revamp a room, when compared to replacing all your furniture.
5. Opt For Deeper Tones
Another common concern around designing with color is the idea that more color in a space will make it look less sophisticated or mature. But that doesn't have to be the case. If you want to make sure your space looks elevated, Nelson recommends opting for deeper-hued jewel tones.
