‘Tis the season! Energize your home with bright color

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) – Add bright color to your interior design plan to create excitement in your décor, and express your personality!

Bright colors tend to make people feel energetic, so use them in moderation and in the rooms where you want to feel spirited and lively.

Be cautious about using too much bright color; it can make a room chaotic, especially when the colors are in bold patterns.

You have so many choices for adding bright colors:

  • The clean primary colors of red, blue and yellow
  • Shocking pink and orange
  • Multiple versions of green, including Kelly green and acid green
  • Passionate purples from dark violet to lighter periwinkle
  • Earthy bright colors like rust, mustard and burnished red tones
  • Splashy spring tones of pink, green and yellow
  • Many hues of brilliant blue including royal blue, French blue and turquoise blue

  • Bright color on a printed fabric used for upholstery or draperies
  • Paintings with vibrant colors

  • The valance or top treatment of a window fashion or the tapes on a horizontal blind
  • The backsplash in your kitchen or bath
  • The border on a tile surface
  • One brightly painted side table in a room
