2021’s Top colors give you endless choices for updating your home. But before you grab a paint bucket and brush, pause for a moment. Painting a room is an obvious choice for color rejuvenation, but you don’t have to tackle all your walls. If you’d rather avoid a messy weekend project, we’ve got other, easier ways to bring these top colors into your home.
Adding a colorful home refresh for 2021 doesn’t have to be complicated. Get an instant refresh by adding colorful throws, pillows, and accent decor into your space. If you repeat a color in smaller doses, you allow the color to spread throughout the room, and even better — your home. Replicating colors throughout your home brings a cohesive feel and eye-pleasing appeal.
Instead of focusing on the larger decor, focus on smaller accessories. This can be anything from artwork and trinkets on display to desk lamps and houseplant pots. Do you have baubles and knick-knacks on your shelves? Choose a color to add and make your display stand out with your chosen color from your palette. The key is to spread out the color using different pieces to add style and cohesion.
Instead of doing a complete interior repaint, focus your energy on adding in those eye-catching elements. Accents like window treatments are a great way to refresh your palette instantly. The process is easier and there’s no wasted energy, yet the results are dramatic enough to feel that update your craving.
Small decor and accessories not quite going to cut it?
If you’re looking for a dramatic effect, adding a statement piece in the color of your choice will do wonders for transforming your space.
Choose something larger that’s ready for a makeover, and either replace or refinish it. Things that make the most dramatic changes are furniture pieces — sofas, chairs, or rugs.
These statement colors will do best when paired with smaller nods to the color. For example, if your rug is a rich brown, mirror that color in wall art that has hints of rich brown. The goal isn’t to get too matchy. Look for a piece that includes the same rich tone as a secondary color so you can layer in a few hues throughout the space. If done correctly, your rug and artwork should leave you with a harmonizing space.
Be conscientious about how often you’re repeating your chosen color — too much repetition can be overwhelming, but not enough and it will go unnoticed.
A painted statement piece is also a great way to add color. Painted side tables spread color, while also making a statement. A bookcase adds dimension to space without being overpowering — books, baubles, and other accents will break up the color nicely.
