keeping it colorful.


the design files.

we’re on a roll with bold colors today! words cannot properly evoke the feelings i have about this fabulous dining room lucy on the design files shared (lucy always shares the good stuff). i could live here in a heartbeat — such a wonderfully eclectic mix of vintage modern — from the victorian fireplace mantel to that great contemporary picnic-style dining table. shazam! just add a couple dashes of bold color like those painted table legs and rooms can simply come to life. here’s a few examples of what i’m talking about.


a colorful accent wall is just enough to spark interest, like this bright and beautiful dining room photographed by andrew tye; and jeg er jonathan’s kitchen with its pop of pink (below).



colorful moroccan rugs are an excellent way to add bold color – like this loft from frankie magazine; and below, Vinoodh Matadin and Inez van Lamsweerde’s new york loft photographed by simon watson for architectural digest.



get the look: add colorful linen pillows from mercĂ­ in paris; Florence Bouvier star cushion; diy chandelier lampshades from fjeld borg; and a bold inaluxe print.


roche bobois colorful floor cushions brighten and warm up this large loft space.


so many great pops of color in these dining area via design*sponge.

    The kitchen with spotty rug is right up my style-street! Reminiscent of our kitchen diner, where we have bright spotty rug with red formica chairs we found in a brocante in the Loire Valley on holiday, love a mix of rustic and modern!

    Love the top room! Painting neon pops of color like that might be my next DIY…

    These pops of bright color are fantastic! Lately I’ve been really loving neutral spaces with pops of color in the accessories.

  14. Adore every single one of these spaces. I think this art (see below) would be incredible on the walls of picture 3, picture 4, and the boho loft space (picture 6)… Thank you for sharing such lovely spring color!

    Gosh I love color, nothing makes me happier! Probably why my home is an explosion of color. These are great ideas for adding color to any home!

    The loft in New York belongs to Vinoodh Matadin and Inez van Lamsweerde. Just saying.
