Simple Way to Bring In Funky Colors?

I feel like my husband and I fail at bringing in color into our rooms. We have a gray bedroom, tan in our living room, dinning room, kitchen and halls. What are some cheap ways to bring in some color?

  • I leave my dirty clothes strewn about, from the bedroom to the laundry, thereby creating an eye-pleasing trail of color throughout the home... (Probably NOT the answer you want, right!)

  • Though I also practice the dirty dish method, you could go with pillows, art, vases. Or paint one wall as an accent.

  • You can create your own absract art with the kids and frame it . You could also go with what the PP said and do vases or pillows.

  • In the kitchen you could bring in baskets for storage with funky colors. You could also put a nice bright colored center piece on your table. Canisters are also another way to bring in pretty colors into your kitchen. In the living room curtains and couch pillows can bring in a nice splash of colors. As well as wall art or vases. In your bedroom. Get a bright comforter. Also add pillow shams or a nice bright curtain. You can also add storage containers that have color.
