What Houzz contributors are saying:
Q. What about those of us who are faint of heart but really want to break out of our mold when it comes to color experimentation?A. Try a pop of color in unusual places if you’re fearful of bold colors in large doses. Think about a closet or cabinet interior, a door or wainscoting for a shot of something deep or bright. If the space has large picture windows, consider bringing the colors of the exterior into the room.If the home has an open-plan layout, take care where you make color changes. It’s usually best to carry the same color through such spaces using accent walls or doors for pops of color, or use different shades of the same color as you move through the house.Q. Do bedrooms play by these same rules of color cohesion?A. No, bedrooms are great places to try different paint treatments. Try painting patterns on your walls, like blocks or stripes, using different colors or the same color in different finishes, like matte and high gloss. I like painting bedroom ceilings a different color than the walls.
Go bold with a bright red door. It brings in a touch of contemporary style and stands out in this white kitchen.
