Decorating with Bold Colors

Not sure what’s going on but lately I’ve been really attracted to bold colors.  Maybe it’s because the weather’s warmer, the spring bulbs are blooming their flowery heads off, the sun is shining, and there’s a new found pep in my step. To satiate my craving, I turned to Houzz for inspirational ideas on decorating with bold colors.

Lots of fun color vibrates on this bungalow’s porch! Blue balances out bright orange while a small dash of apple green paints the chippy bench under the window.

Coral colored cabinets are an unexpected touch in this charming kitchen. A fun geometric pattern on the wall enhances the overall look.

A gorgeous tropical living room is brimming with color!  It’s an expansive living room and beautifully displays that decorating with bold colors can be classy and elegant.


Beach Style Bedroom by San Marino Interior Designers & Decorators Charmean Neithart Interiors, LLC.

I think most people decorate their bedrooms in soft, subdued colors. This one still looks cozy and inviting with its bold colors and mix of graphic patterns.

Call attention to your fireplace with a bold stroke of color!  If you decide you don’t like it, you can always change it. I’m not a huge fan of orange, but I like its use in this living room.

How fun is this kitchen?

Pops of red accompany a wash of aqua and Coca-Cola bar stools add the finishing touch!

Who says a basement has to be dark and dreary? This one is bright and cheery with pink, green, and red playing against the white walls and floors.

If you’re a little timid about decorating with bold colors inside your home, why not try it outside?

A string of neon bright pillows creates a bright spot in the shade.


Home Improvement - Exterior Paint Colors on FarmhouseLast Fall we painted the outside of our house and I decided to go bold with bright yellow siding, blue and white trim, and doors painted in bright aqua. I’m anxious to finally get the porch floor painted and spruce it up a bit with accessories.

Have you added any bright and bold colors to your home? I’d love to hear about it!

  1. Hi Jennifer! They look great here in the pictures! The brightest color I have done is the aqua (treasure by Americana Decor chalk paint) on a magazine rack. I will have to step out of my comfort zone and try some more bold colors…..some day. Thanks for sharing!!
