Bold Wall Colors

July 17, 2012

As I mentioned in the post about mirrored furniture, I’m in a new home and on the constant prowl for interior design inspiration. Pinterest has clearly been a heaven-sent for anyone wanting to catalogue their favorites and then look through them to start seeing trends. My trends? Modern, bold, color, cozy, chic and filled with pattern. Honestly, it sounds like most of my wardrobe these days!

When it comes to wall color, it’s either a clean white wall — the perfect canvas for a bold room — or ones with rich colors for me these days. I’m passing on the wimpy, ‘are you there?’ shades and embracing walls like these. It looks overwhelming in the can (and even at first one the walls), I know, but live with it for a while before any final decisions and you’ll be so glad you did. Perk? It’s one of the most affordable updates you can make to a room!

    If you want to do something bold, I say go for it!  We have some bold colors going on in our house, and it makes me so happy!

      Totally agree! For some reason I cannot picture you with white walls. :) My office is dark grey and I’m thinking of painting my daughter’s a bright purple; it’s currently more subtle with one deep wall. Fun to play around with!

    I LOVE using bold colors on walls.  When I moved into my new home, I used a dark chocolate on one wall in my bedroom and two different shades of grey in my office.  I love it!

    A site where I get a ton of decorating inspiration is HGTV’s designer portfolio.  Tons of great stuff there!

      Isn’t that amazing?! My favorite! I am definitely in need of some striped walls. Worse case you repaint a few months later. I vote you go for it!
