7 Clever Ways to Color Block Your Home

I love a bright and cheery home! It’s welcoming as a guest and delightful to live in. One of my favorite ways to achieve a colorful home is the color blocking technique where you work with bright patches of color. This can be achieved in a number of ways, but here are some of my favorite ways to do it.
- Flodeau. Color block your storage! This is perhaps my favorite way to add color to a home. Create a colorful palette and apply it to the storage of your home. This works especially well with cupboards. Don’t feel like you have to use only a few colors. Try using a number of them!
- Lush Home. Color block your walls. Painting your wall is a simple and cheap way to color block your home. You can either paint one wall as an accent, or partially paint it. A partial painted wall feels deliberate and clever.
- Lonny. Color blocked tile. Patches of colorful tile is a clever, but slightly more expensive way to achieve the look. It’s something that requires more commitment, but if it’s done it has a powerful look.
- Sugar and Charm. Half painted wall. This half painted wall is a great way to add a polished look to your home. The trick to a half painted wall is to not paint it exactly at the half mark. Remember the golden rule and paint it just above the half mark or below, at the 1/3 line.
Another fun way to color block is with a geometric pattern that takes up the full wall. Isn’t this fun? The palette is limited to 4 bright colors.
The statement of this room features the simple color block on the yellow mantle. Everything else is clean with the black and white palette.
