6 Ways to Easily Add Color to Your Home

Color in a stark room
Beige can get boring, especially in the heat of the summer. But you don't have to completely redesign your room to add a little color. Here are a few quick and easy ways to add some color - and great focal points - to your home.


A change in paint color will quickly and easily change the feel of a room. The great news? A can of paint is inexpensive, and the biggest cost is your own time. If you're feeling a little abstract, try painting only one wall for a great focal point.

Throw pillows

Adding a few colorful pillows on your couch, chairs, or even the floor will brighten up a room in an instant. Throw pillows are a really easy way to change the look and feel of your room depending on the season, so feel free to change these pillows out, come fall!


Getting a cool, funky lamp can brighten (pardon the pun) your room immediately. Lamps are a great way to show off your personality - be it vintage, modern, eclectic, or classic. Like throw pillows, you can easily change out the lamp shade depending on the season.

Throw rug

Even if you have a carpet in the room already, adding a throw rug is a great way to add color to a room and to an unusual focal point: the floor.

Piece of art

It's no surprise adding a piece of art to your wall can add a color and make a quick change to the feel of a room. But here's a DIY tip you may not have thought of: try buying a great piece of wallpaper and covering a canvas. That way, you can fully customize your wall art, and for only a few dollars!


Last, but certainly not least, a blanket - draped over the back of a chair or on a bed - is one of the easiest way to add color to your room. Plus, there is the added benefit of keeping you warm and cozy on a cool night! For some colorful blanket styles, be sure to check out our day blanket collection.
