Bold, bright colors are in style!

However it’s a little scary to buy a hot pink couch or a lime green chair, especially when they come with a hefty price tag and you worry you may tire of them or the styles may change and no one wants to be stuck with a dated piece of furniture.

A great solution: choose neutral furniture and add your pops of color with inexpensive art work, bright scatter rugs, throws, and pillows. Even painting a wall or two in your current favorite shade can liven up a room and be easy to change when you are ready for a new look. 

If you shop bargain sites like Wayfair or hit up TJ Maxx or HomeGoods, you can readily find fun pieces that allow you to go crazy with color and not break the bank.  Thrift stores and flea markets can offer fun vintage options that bring personality and pop, while also encouraging you to do a little DIY decorating to add your special touches.

Keep in mind that if you are planning to put your home up for sale anytime soon, keep the palette light and neutral (or be sure to change it back in the future) so your buyers can visualize their own décor and style in the space.
