Interior Design “Mistakes” to Avoid (5/10): Fear of Color
“More often than not, people choose to go with a “safe” color, typically a shade of gray or white. It can be intimidating to commit to a bold color (especially on walls), but that doesn’t mean your space needs to be boring because of it! There are other, less aggressive ways to add color to your spaces. Incorporating fun, vibrant accessories is a great way to add a few pops here and there, not to mention, they’re easily changeable! If you’re more daring, add some color on the ceiling or cabinets. I promise you won’t regret it.” – Bobbi Jo Engelby, Principal Designer and Owner
Bright, bold colors can be intimidating — we get it. But don’t play it safe. These two spaces have no contrasting elements, no balance of color (because there are no colors!) and no elements that excite the eye!
Accessorize! Bring color into your design using pillows, books, and fun accessories (maybe even a hot pink sofa if you’re really feeling bold)! The result will be a lively, eye-catching masterpiece that you get to call “home.”
Try something different. White and gray kitchens have been trending for a while now, but we say, “BOR-ING!” Paint the cabinets a contrasting color! And if all the cabinets are too much for you, just paint the island. Add a pretty runner and a couple plants too!
