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.

Traditional Home viaA 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.
Real Simple viaAccessories 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.
