15 Color Blocked Designs For Your Home

color blocking
Color blocking has been around for a long time, but it popped up in fall 2013 fashion in a big way. From color-blocked coats and dresses to killer heels, everyone is pairing bold hues together in a powerful way. There’s no reason the trend can’t continue all the way home, so today I picked 15 of my favorite color-blocked designs for every room of the house. We’ve got a simple (and inexpensive!) color-blocked DIY coming up next, so stay tuned for that at 1pm! xo, grace
