INCORPORATE A COLORED OTTOMAN

Accessorize your living room with an ottoman, covered in contrasting color upholstery. You can stay within the same color family, but opt for eye catching hues and see how colorblocking can be totally striking.

ADD A SPLASH OF COLOR WITH ACCENT PILLOWS

Establish the colorblock design with the addition of pillows. Match them with the colors of the rest of the accessories in the room. Stick to just two or three bold colors from the same family. They tend to work best together when bringing neutral furnishings to life, adding vibrancy to a pale monochromatic space.

HANG COLORFUL ART PIECES

Add a bit of happy modern colors by incorporating a color blocked art element. It can be as small as a vase or as large as a huge statue or painting. Whatever you choose, the key is to use contrasting blocks of colors.

DISPLAY BOLD AND COLORFUL ART BOOKS

We at Homestyler do judge books also by their cover. Harmonize your interior design by locating colorful art and design books on your bookshelves or the coffee table. The books should coordinate with your room’s color scheme or have one of their own.

CHOOSE MODULAR SEATING UNITS

Modular seating units are just starting to take off in the world of decor. The idea is to use contrasting blocks of color combinations within your seating furniture that are eye catching and incredibly unique. For example, you can arrange the sofa to match your own aesthetic taste, not to mention, with all the color choices available, it can turn into a real statement piece.
