Interior Decorating Tips: Shopping for Colorful Home Accents

Take these interior decorating tips into consideration when you are shopping for colorful home accents, and you will never have to be afraid of incorporating color into your home again.

1. Complement your existing interior decorating style. When adding pops of color to your existing interior decor, choose items that complement your style, as well as your color scheme. An Art Deco lamp might look kind of funny next to Victorian furniture. That is not to say you cannot mix and match styles; just make sure they have some sort of commonality.

Add a refreshing pop of blue to your living area with this onion-shaped Lite Source Chrome and Turquoise table lamp for $66.60 to $83.00. It comes with a white fabric drum shade from the Mandisa collection.

2. Balance pops of color with interesting, neutral-hued accessories. Do you really want your chosen accent color to stand out? Group a bright colored piece together with a couple neutral ones that have interesting textures or patterns, and even something that doesn't stand out as much (to keep the focus on your pop of color).

Elephants that are carved out of wood, particularly those which have interesting patterns or textures, are fun, unique pieces that look great next to colorful home accents. Look at these carved elephants , for example. Pair one of them with a brightly colored vase, a bowl or something that you can place behind it for lots of contrast.

3. Start out small, and slowly build your color scheme. To avoid color shock, start out small. Slowly add a bit of color here and another one there. See how you like it before bringing in more color. Besides, it can be expensive to go out and buy all new decorations for your home.

A pair of red Uttermost Siana vases are bold without becoming too loud amongst your mostly-neutral decor. They would look great in a home with traditional style design. To tone them down further, fill each vase with greenery and place them together in the entryway near a door. The set of two costs approximately $206.00.
