Color adds so much to a room's design. Not only does a pop of color break up a neutral palette, bursts of contrasting (or complementary) colors create a dynamic tension that adds interest. Adding just a pop of color in an accessory, accent wall, textiles or area rug will change the look and feel of the room. Check out these chic examples of pops of color throughout the house.
Orange Headboard

Just a pop of color really brings this bedroom to life. Using the orange headboard as the jumping off point, orange trim adds a pop of color to the white linens.
Orange & Turquoise Bedroom

Another bedroom that uses pops of orange to liven up the space. This orange chair, with aqua painted legs, adds a burst of warm color in this cream and aqua bedroom.
Colorful Living Room Furniture
Traditional Home via
A neutral palette of cream and pale green gets a pop of contrasting color in the form of red pillows. The red is even more striking against the green and white chevron stripe wingback chairs.
Home Accessories
Real Simple via
Accessories are the perfect place for a pop of color. These Fu dogs pop in rich turquoise against the grey, black and white decor. The brilliant color catches the eye even with the stunning lamps and Venetian mirror vying for attention in the space.
Blue and Yellow Living Room

White and light neutrals in wall color and the sofa let the blue accent rug and occasional chairs pop in this room. The complementary yellow pillow really pops against the blue.
White Kitchen
Pawley's Island Posh via
The trend in white kitchens sets the stage for colorful kitchen accessories to add pops of color. Tea towels, counter-top appliances and other accessories can add easy pops of color to a neutral kitchen.
Red Vanity
Better Homes and Gardens via
A single piece of brightly painted furniture really pops in a neutral room. Painting a vanity red in the bathroom is unexpected but very stylish.
Chandelier in Kitchen
That's Chic via
Fresh flowers are a wonderful way to add a temporary pop of color to a room. Flowers are inexpensive and colorful and a great addition to any room. Love that unexpected light fixture of an ornate chandelier in the kitchen beyond. Even so, the flowers still hold the center of attention.
