Tasetful and Bold!

Here are a few fun photos I have collected for what I call Tasteful Bold Color.  I have seen some really ugly bold color schemes in rooms. Colors need to be simple combinations and not fight with each other.   You don't want a room that screams at you.  I think these ideas are tasteful. These are very bright but they are simple and in most cases it is one or two pieces that creates the drama.  Much of it is only paint so take a look and see if you might be bold in one of your rooms this year.

If the room on the left is just too much for yourtaste try adding just one item like this a cute little ottoman with dressmaker details for a little punch.

Add a statement chair and a high contrast pillow for a simple piece of drama to a room. The painted stripe side table adds just enough color to make it very interesting. This could be a do-it-yourself project using bright lacquer paint and painters tape to keep your paint lines straight.

On the right is another version of the darling little ottoman.  What a statement that would make in a girls bedroom. Teens and little ones alike would appreciate this cutie.  The room on the left creates its bold look with two contrasting colors (aqua and various shades of pink). They kept neutral walls and main furniture The bulletin board with it's tasteful bold color as well as the 2 book shelves are what carry the room.  By grouping the  accessories into  a variety of shades of the same color  you avoid the screaming effect you might have if too many colors were used.
How about ONE wild chair.  Notice how color changes a traditional wing back to a contemporary statement piece.
