    Colors That Pop

    As Spring inches ever closer, home décor is starting to get a little more playful with brighter colors being incorporated more and more into homes. One piece of brightly colored décor such as a work of art, rug, lamp, piece of furniture, or accessory can inspire an entire room. This trend is vacation and resort inspired and is a great way to add a bit of fun to your home. Bold colors tend to work best in kitchens or family rooms with lots of natural light.

    Grey has now become a basic neutral that is now mentioned with the likes of beige, brown, white, and black because it not only offers versatility in the colors you can pair with it, but the wide range of hues you can get with it. Grey can come in a very pale metallic to a deep midnight bluish grey. Grey and yellow has by far been one of the most popular uses of grey and it’s a great color combination that can work as a palette for almost any room or be used for your accents such as linens, pillows, and rugs.

Accents can change the whole feel of a room.
