If selecting the right hues for your living room has you stumped, then make the bold decision not to decide at all. White walls are the best backdrop for a color free-for-all such as the one seen here. What makes it work? The hues are saturated—meaning there are no pastels. The other key is the number three—if you introduce a tone, give it at least two "friends" in the same shade.
How to get the look:
- Go glossy. When you're painting furniture or accessories in a bold hue, use a semi-or high-gloss finish. The shine pumps up the "notice me" volume.
- Make your own art. Glue buttons onto cardboard in the shape of a heart.
- Give an old piece of furniture a fun, funky makeover with a bright coat of paint.
- Use a stack of books as an end table.
