Loving the New Trend of Bright Colors but Afraid to Try? Here's How to Start

By Decorology @decorology_blog
More and more I see beautiful, bold color on the covers of home decor mags but rarely do you ever see such color in someone's home. The reason is that, as I'm sure you know, the thought of painting your living room royal blue, or whatever your color crush, is a little scary....
The trick, and I'm sure this is no secret - is to start with a few accessories in a color you love, and then, if you are happy living with it, start adding more and more layers at a time.

They were happy and added the aqua lamp. Then maybe the colorful vase you see in the back. Their courage was up and maybe a few weeks or months later they add some pink pillows and those gorgeous blue curtains!

If you want to be a little braver - try an upholstered piece, like this gorgeous plum velvet chesterfield. Mix and match pillows and an eclectic rug keeps the space down to earth.

Now...for those of us who think we may be able to paint....
Maybe start with a washed effect of a bright color....like this pink below, which is bright but also a little translucent.
