How To Add Color To A Room For A New Look

With summer just around the corner, you might feel compelled to refresh the look of your home. If you need inspiration for decorating, there are plenty of ways to do it. One way to do this is to choose a color that matches the theme of a room. This is where our accessories come into play with fun pops of color.

Let’s start with cool colors.

It can be fun to color coordinate so we figured with a rug like the Lux Blue 5’ x 7’ Area Rug you can use it to match to the throw pillows you have on your sofa or bed. The teal blue reminds us of the ocean or beach. Maybe this is a vibe you’re looking for!

If your dining room is simply designed, a place mat can be a quick and convenient way to bring color to the table. The Dolce Blue Place Mat has light blue crystals that will make everyone’s plate setting sparkle.

To go along with the placemats, we have beautiful candleholders to match. The Lapiz Azule Large Candle Holder can complement your dining table’s centerpiece with blue agate stones that add the perfect amount of color.

In the image below, you’ll see how combining a whimsical rug like the Carson 8’ x 10’ Area Rug with simple pieces of furniture makes a difference in a room by combining color and texture. This bold statement is exactly how easy it is to add color to your home!

Let’s say your living room tends to be a neutral space when it comes to a color scheme and you’ve been thinking about adding color. With a rug like the Cosmo Lime 6’ x 9’ Area Rug, the lime green tone adds high energy to the room, so you don’t have to repaint those bright white walls.

Now this rug is a good one. Here, pretend you’re sitting outside by the pool and you are dreaming of a tropical oasis. You don’t need to go anywhere with the Hols Indoor/Outdoor Area Rug, with a refreshing botanical leaf pattern. And yes, this patterned rug can be used outside on your patio or balcony so you don’t have to daydream anymore! Enjoy your favorite beverage, sit back, and relax.

Ok, so, the accent colors of the Grace Area Rug are different than what we have shown you so far. We don’t see this rug as just a temporary addition. The lilac purple and rose pink make this rug perfect for a baby girl’s nursery. Or, maybe your home office is bare and needs a touch of color.

For your transitional-style home.

Another way to update the look of any room is with wall art! The Uva Set of 2 Acrylic Wall Art has a variety of subtle colors that can still make a difference. Whether it’s in your dining room or foyer, this wall art can set the mood. 

With the Apple Pear Décor, there’s versatility for every area of your home. The apples and pear are beautifully colored, and they will look great as the centerpiece of your dining table, on a kitchen counter, or on a console table in your entryway.

These two pieces are great when paired together, perfect for adding rustic or transitional elements to your home.

If you want something more subdued. 

Maybe bright colors aren’t your thing and you’re looking for something more chic, just like this rug’s name, Chic Gray 5’ x 8’ Area Rug.

This trendy rug is easy to match and easy to maintain. Plus, it’s a popular design!

Neutral doesn’t have to be boring. The Puffy I Gray 5’ x 8’ Area Rug does a great job of combining an abstract pattern with only gray and white tones.

Now jump into warm colors.

If a very colorful rug is not for you, maybe you would rather bring colors and patterns together with something like the Safia Indoor/Outdoor Area Rug! Let’s say that in your dining room you have a dining table that is clean contemporary or modern, and you’d like to expand your color palette to reveal some of your personality. With this rug, a neutral color is combined with a fun red pattern, looking great with your hardwood flooring.

Life’s a beach, and the Harry Accent Pillow allows you to bring something nautical home with red and white stripes. Consider adding a few of these pillows to your outdoor sofa that might be white or cream, or on your bed to give your room a coastal vibe.

If your kid wants to add more colors to their room, they can do so with the Safi Bubble 5’ x 8’ Area Rug. With the bubble pattern in a variety of colors, this rug can make their room feel bigger and brighter. 

We thought we’d end this blog with a unique rug that you might not have thought about adding to your décor. The Picasso Area Rug is true to its name with an abstract design of Picasso with so many colors, we lost track! If you like adding pieces of art to your home, we consider this rug to be one.
