Are you a little color shy? Not all of us can have a high affinity for color play and color mixing, especially when it comes to interior décor. But if you’re getting a tad bored of an all neutral décor palette and wish you could find simple, easy and non-overwhelming ways to sneak in some color into your space, these 8 tips are tailor made just for you!
 
1. Paper Mache Lamps
Indulge your child this weekend and make colorful paper mache lamps that you can use around the house! These are great for the patio, balcony, your child’s room and even the casual family room décor. 
 
2. Throw Pillows
The easiest way to sneak in some color into your décor is to invest in throw pillows. Why are they so amazing? One – you can easily find ready-made sets that look great together and spruce up any space with a mix of harmonizing colors. Two – when you’re bored, simply slip on new covers and you have a whole new color palette. It’s that simple! 
 
3. Statement Rug
If you prefer a classy, sophisticated yet contemporary decor style, a statement rug is an excellent way to bring in some color. Go for an abstract design that looks like a splash of modern art covering your floors! 
 
4. Flower Arrangements
Don’t know where to start? Take a cue from Mother Nature. Use colorful vases to display an array of flowers – real or artificial – and inject some pretty colors in to your décor palette. 
 
 
5. Spruce Up Bookshelves
Give those boring shelves new life by using a pretty decorative paper to line the back of the racks. Alternatively, you could also paint the back of the shelves with a bold, bright hue like a sunny yellow or a pretty green.
 
6. Framed Wall Art
Not any ordinary art; frame old, unused wallpaper swatches and make your own art gallery on a budget! You can also find samples or swatches at the store that can turn into wall art with a simple, classy looking frame. If you are ready to go bold, invest in a piece of colorful, dramatic, modern art that can dominate a wall and inject some color, style and personality into your décor.
 
7. Use Pretty Chinaware
Most of us don’t end up using our fancy china anymore, especially those pretty teacups you may have been gifted at some point. If you don’t host too many tea parties, use them as décor pieces. Use them to hold your earrings, rings, keys, spare coins, pebbles and small knick-knacks and also add a hint of color to your dressing table or the entrance console. You could also simply group together colorful ceramics for a pretty, decorative display on an empty shelf. 
 
 
8. Candle Decor
Another easy way to add a bit of color to your décor is with the use of colorful and decorative candles. Find quirky, one-of-a-kind candles, candle stands, and candle holders and start your own collection. You could even go one step further by opting to buy candles of the aromatherapy variety which would not only add color to the room but infuse it with subtle scents to make the space more appealing.
