Not for the faint of heart, decorating your home with bold colors is sure to make a fashionable statement. Vibrant shades of teal, bursting pops of yellow, and rich hints of gold give this trend its edgy appeal. Play with furniture in beautiful jewel tones mixed with metallic accents and conversation-starting accessories to create a space that inspires. As pretty as a rainbow, you’ll want to go bold and go home this season.
Start with a Neutral Base
To make bold colors really pop, make sure you start with a neutral backdrop. We started with hardwood floors and added a fairly neutral rug in shades of brown for the room’s foundation. We painted our brick wall a soft gray to emulate subway tile, letting the furniture and home accents take the spotlight.
Seating in Bold Colors
To begin furnishing this room, we brought in one of our favorite statement pieces, the Eden Settee. This classy, small scale sofa features striking teal fabric with a button-tufted seat and back. We softened the look with two Seneca Pillows in antique yellowish-gold and deep navy blue to bring some of the more muted colors up from the rug. This allows the bright color to shine through without feeling too flashy and gives the room a rich, regal vibe. The Hilton Accent Chair is the perfect complement to the settee, boasting deep leather-like turquoise. When decorating with bright colors, everything doesn’t have to perfectly match. Choose colors from the same color family, playing with texture.
Home Decor in Bold Colors
We decided to bring more bold colors into our room with the accent pieces. The Teal Woods Gold Foil Laquer Artwork is bursting with personality in teal and yellow. It really adds flavor and light to the walls. On the coffee table and console table, we brought in the Oki Candleholders and the Oki Vases in a variety of bluish-green hues to stick with our color palette. Finally, we went totally bold with the Rainbow Paper Vases on the sofa table. Vibrant colors drip down the sides of these striking pieces, giving this living room the fashionable boost of bold it needed.
Metallic Accents with Bold Colors
As much as we love the bold colors trend, not every piece in a room can be loud and bright, so we balanced the look with metallic accents. The Linden Coffee Table and Sofa Table (available at your local Furniture Row store) are super modern and offer the perfect amount of shine and contrast. Gold trinkets including a picture frame, a three-dimensional star, and glimmering hardcover books adorn the space. We also brought in the textured Adelle Table Lamp and the Faceted Ceramic Side Table for a hint of bronze dimension.
Overall, decorating your home with bold colors is quite easy and creates a fun, inviting space. Eclectic by nature, this home decor trend allows you to mix and match so many different styles together for a seamless result. Copy this tantalizing teal color scheme, or go wild and experiment with other on-trend colors. If unsure, go with a jewel tone – they tend to work best when decorating with bold colors.
