15 Rooms That Unabashedly Celebrate Bold Color

Share It

Move over all-white walls and neutral-colored furniture! While we love the idea of the purported calm that comes with this look — and how it can allow pieces like bright artwork to pop — we can’t deny the thrill of a dramatic dash of color across a vintage piece of furniture, or the high lacquered pop-of-color in a revamped piece. Or, best yet, the all-over effect of a room completely drenched in, and totally unafraid of, color!

We have rounded up some of our favorite examples of undeniably striking rooms that adore bold color. Have you always been in love with color, unable to part with it? Or have you been totally on board with the all-white trend and are now curious about dipping your toes into the cerulean blue pool of color-filled walls and punches of pigment through your furniture pieces and styling? Either way, dream-like colorscape inspiration awaits! —Rebekah

  1. Love this. And, I’m glad you included an option to use accessories to add bold color — not all of us are ready for the commitment of a bold color risk (even though we might secretly crave it). Thanks for the inspiration.

    I really like the use of different bold pastels in the Maine home entryway and two rooms leading off of it. They compliment each other beautifully and give each room a distinct character. Thanks for sharing!
