#1 – Pick a fantastic rug.
This brilliantly vibrant Tufted Pixel Rug by the Portuguese Piodao Group would undoubtedly brighten any room – or mood. It incorporates a color palette with enough variety to pick up existing colors in your room’s design scheme.
#2 – Allow your light bulbs to do the design-brightening for you.
Hand-etched for a whimsical lighting effect, these shadow lamps created by Melissa Borrell could liven any space. Just imagine what they’d look like on a colored wall.
#3 – Add a little twinkle to your walls.
Not every space could jive with this string of bulbs, but it’d look perfect in a fun hang-out spot or kid’s room. The design pack comes from Supermarket HQ and allows the buyer to pick the color scheme.
#4 – Roll out a mini landscape across your floor.
Love the way the landscape looks from 30,000 feet? Liz Eeuwes, a Canadian designer, makes this her inspiration for a new line of topography rugs. She’s wise to situate them as focal points in room design, seeing as their boldness is almost too hot to handle.
#5 – Accent away!
What do you think about this pillow’s color scheme? Too much? Made from corduroy cut from mill ends, this pick by Aster + Sage is machine-washable and super soft.
#6 – Choose a book by its cover.
Books don’t just have to be for reading. This book rack, simply called Slim, allows you to display a treasured collection on the wall and use it as a colorful design element.
Lesson of the day? Splashes of color can come from a wide variety of places…
