A Primary Life: Adding the Right Amount of Color to Your Room
Sometimes it feels as if there is a clash of the trends. Some prefer an all white, simplistic space while some prefer an array of color. I personally love both and want both in my home. I do, however, think that decorating with color (specifically primary colors) can be a tricky task. You don’t want to go overboard and create a kindergarten classroom, but you also don’t want to go under board where your guests have no idea you were trying to use color. Here are a few tips to make the process less painful for you.
I always preach to clients that colorful rugs are an easy solution for adding color in a space. Above we see a brightly colored patterned rug that adds awesome personality to an already awesome space.

Painting one wall a bright color can be just the right amount of vibrancy for a room. Immediately you notice 3 specific colors in this room. All three work well together because they are placed with white wood and other natural elements. The art also brings everything nicely together.
But maybe you just want to add color in one specific area? Try introducing it through a large piece of furniture! A yellow couch in an all white space is a striking approach. Other colors to choose from for upholstered pieces are blue, green, and even red.

These owners are clearly not afraid of color. From the blue wall to the green couch, everything looks playful yet sophisticated. Try keeping the anchor pieces neutral while splashing color in accessories.
Do you live in a land of color? Or is it hard for you to pair the right colors together?
