Three Steps for Decorating with Color
Posted on 17 November 2015
To inspire your style, I've developed a simple, three step approach for decorating with color. You'll be filling your rooms with color in no time.
Establish your anchor. This can either be that piece you own and must work with (hello sofa) or it can be a piece you fall in love with and want to use. For this example, let's use this beautiful bold green rug from Chairish as our anchor.
Next you need what I like to call your bridge. This an item that pulls the color out of your anchor piece and also introduces new colors. Artwork, throw pillows, bedding or even china can all be great bridges. Here I chose a pillow that incorporated the green from the rug and then adds other brights and pops of colors I want to pull throughout the room. I chose to include a cinda b Calypso Market Tote for inspiration of pattern and graphic vibrancy.
Using the colors in your bridge as your guide, select the remaining items for your room. Art, lighting, throw blankets, even small accessories like bookends are all great places to put color.
