Incorporating Pops of Color Into your Decor

While standing in the check out line at the grocery store a couple of weeks ago, the cover of a magazine caught my eye and I had to pick it up! It was a shot of a bright kitchen with turquoise cabinets (SWOON!) and open shelving with colorful dishes. Obviously, the magazine went in my cart and came home with me. It inspired me to share some of the ways I incorporate color into my decor to hopefully inspire you to do the same.


Are you tired of all the stark white rooms you see all over Facebook and Instagram? I like the simplicity and cleanness of the neutral palette, but miss the personality that color brings. For me, I have always welcomed color into my home. Apparently, "Pops of Color" are back, according to HGTV magazine. Color does not have to be scary as you can see by some of the pieces I have in my house.

Tips for adding Pops of Color

1. Keep the walls neutral: If you are adding a large piece of furniture in a bright color, you will want a neutral backdrop (like white or creme) to keep the shades from competing with each other.
