Inspiration: Rooms with a "Pop" of Color

I've always had a passion for neutral or white rooms that feature little "pops" of color. The color can be on anything from one feature wall, curtains, a few pillows, a gorgeous area rug....there are endless possibilities.

Having light neutral walls also makes it easy to change the look of your room from season to season. Maybe you will have yellow and blue accents in the Summer, and then change them out for red and brown in the Fall. I tend to do exactly that with throw pillows and blankets in my living room. It's like having a brand new living room twice a year!

The combination of crisp white, vibrant red, and soft turquoise inspired this simple, chic bedroom. A custom-built, upholstered bed in white Ultrasuede was the splurge in this room, and other design details, such as the graphic rug and white-lacquered dresser, came from reasonably priced retailers. A bright red floral pattern is used for the pillows and led to an equally bold custom lampshade.

A vibrant blue rug both anchors and inspires this California living room. An oversized, creamy white couch is covered with pillows in shades of blue to create a comfortable seating area. Two large, linen poufs make for extra (and movable) seating. A tiled coffee table feels exotic and coastal.

This bunkroom in Santa Cruz, California, is the perfect way to sleep extra visitors. The bunks are extra long to accommodate all ages, and varying but complementary bed linens make each bed feel like its own space.

Just a splash of the unexpected here and there – such as the hot pink bean bag chairs and bold lamps – is a great way to introduce some brightness in an all-white room.
