Are you craving a little color, but don’t want to make a big commitment? A really good way to find out what color you want to live with for a while is to add a temporary pop of your favorites one color at a time as a “test drive.” Notice in the image above all the ways you might add this rich hue to your living room or family room. A pillow, a piece of wall art, a pouf, a gorgeous upholstered chair or a single decorative accessory--any of these elements will give you an idea of how you really feel about that color. Yes, you’ll have an immediate reaction either positive or negative. Then you’ll be able to go on to another possibility and so on until you know which is your color choice.
If you like to play with paint, adding an unexpected swath of color on the wall and across a window or door.
One easy, no-cost way to add a temporary pop to a modern dining room is to bring in a colorful chair as a fun addition to a wood dining table and chairs. Below, the Mid-Century molded chair in red creates an awesome look.
The reproduction Tolix Style Dining Chair in bright yellow metal would add an appealing pop of color (and texture) to your modern wooden dining room set.
The Organic Chair - High Back - Reproduction in deep red is another possibility. Wouldn’t this modern upholstered chair be a fantastic addition to a neutral living room? How cool would it look in an all-grey room?
Curtains, a toss pillow, throw and even fresh flowers like daffodils in the spring or a beautiful forced amaryllis can also add that pop of temporary color. We hope you’ll consider one of more of these colorful ideas when you’re craving a bit of color in your life. We’ll be happy to help you explore the world of modern color at Gfurn.
