14 Ideas for Adding Pops of Color, Spotted on Instagram

Filed Under:

The Rainbow Collection, @elsielarson

Showcase a selection of vintage glassware (or any other colorful collection you have!) in an organized rainbow ombré on open shelving to bring some major personality to a mostly white room.

A Case of the Blues, @mrsparanjape

Both modern and timeless, Yves Klein blue is a designer favorite for a reason. Try out a functional dresser in the bold hue—no matter your aesthetic—for a fun pop of color, like this entryway captured by Alyssa Rosenheck. Trust us—the color works on furniture of pretty much any style.

Cool Contrast@jennfdesigns

This sophisticated dining room with elegant saffron-yellow side chairs proves color is your friend! Bring in a bench in a contrasting color—like this subtly patterned cobalt blue—to embrace the versatility of mix-and-match seating for double the fun!

Seeing Red, @jeffmindell

This sleek gray bedroom is definitely stylish, but it’s the glossy red table lamp and vibrant chevron accent pillow that make it pop—proving you need only one or two statement pieces to make a room.

A Single Statement, @theonewithwanderlust

Every living room needs a sofa, so why not make yours stand out? The nubby teal upholstery of this midcentury style adds color and texture to the space, and it pairs surprisingly well with black and white accents (including this adorable pooch!).

Let the Sunshine In, @ohdeardrea

Give an old favorite a new lease on life with a few coats of paint! We love how this sunny yellow hue—paired with patterned global accents—brightens up the darker hallway space.

Just Like Heaven, @amybartlam

Give an already-elegant space an extra dose of romance with a tufted club chair in a sweet pastel blue, as Katie Hodges Design did here. Upholstered in a rich dimensional velvet, this soft shade is anything but a background hue.

A Bright Idea, @susana.chango

Start your day off on a high note with a breakfast nook ursting color, like this home installation from interior designer Susana Chango. With a hint of mint and those adorable scallop-edge lanterns above, this is a breakfast table we’d definitely want to linger over.

A Stately Signature, @brentwoodbungalow

This adorable vacation rental (you can book it on Airbnb!) has got it going on with its eclectic mix of midcentury styles and materials such as wicker and brass, but the living room’s crown jewel is clearly the jaw-dropping blue velvet chesterfield. Swoon!

Eclectic Additions, @dabito

While most people think to pair brights with sparkling white, Dabito’s ever-changing living room—currently painted in the deepest shade of navy—proves that opposites definitely attract. We love how he mixed neutral furnishings with colorful kilim pillows for a little bonus bohemian flair.

Just Peachy, @littlelibertyrooms

Kids’ rooms are a no-brainer when it comes to finding a space to play with color, but this girl’s room is surprisingly sophisticated in a soft dove gray with peachy-pink and gleaming gold accents.

A Colorful Corner, @juliagoodwindesign

Brighten up your living room’s darkest corner with a sofa and ottomans in contrasting but complementary colors, like this salmon-hued midcentury sofa placed behind a pair of jade velvet stools.

A Warm Welcome, @melodrama

Set the tone for the rest of your home with a warm and welcoming front door! We love something unexpected and unabashedly bright, like this glossy, vibrant orange.

Some Like It Hot, @brittkingery

Add a serious punch of color to a neutral bedroom filled with light linen bedding and vintage wood furnishings by placing an overdyed Turkish-style rug underfoot. Style Tip: Pull the rug a few feet out from the wall for a more relaxed, casual feel.
