Painting with Bold Colors! Be Daring!
Bold colors can be intimidating, but with the right selection and space, it can make a bland room stand out in your house. This first selection was a long family room with three windows running the length and a mirrored wall at the end. In essence, only three walls were painted. With contrasting white trim and windows, this Navy makes a splendid choice.
Here a well meaning sun room leaves the brightness behind with plain white walls.
Punching up the color adds life and brightness to the former white dullness.
Again, with lots of windows and an archway, the bold colors work well.
Grays can be bold, and accenting them with colors in connecting rooms can make a wonderful statement. Here we have a wonderful cheery yellow bedroom, gray hall and across the hall a turquoise bedroom. The Grays throughout this house blend beautifully with the few colorful rooms.
This kitchen could have been boring with blue walls and all white cabinets. By blending the two and adding blue on the cabinet backs and center panels, this original built in kitchen cabinetry is brought to life. (See the whole kitchen here)
In a similar example, this bedroom was painted white with an accent wall of black. The opposing wall was to have had solid black doors. By adding the white inserts and a black mirror between the doors, we create an alternating pattern that holds your eyes captive. (More on this one here)
And lastly, this strong yellow bedroom contrasts wonderfully with the purple in the master bath. The artwork added to the walls after the paint dried pulled the colors together in a most amazing way. More to come in a future post on this residence.
