Add some PIZAZZ- Top 5 Color Blocking Tips!

Color-blocking is hot & happening right now in interior design. Here's a quick internet eye candy round-up with our top five tips on how to use color-blocking in YOUR humble abode:
Branches Furniture

1: Don't be scared of color! If you have white walls, why not brighten the space with some fabulous drapery panels, or in this case shower curtains? This is also the perfect strategy for renters (renters with style that is :))

 2: Layer it on. In this gorgeous bedroom, a simple, folded coverlet thrown across the bed takes this bed from hum-drum to coastal-coral-Wow! Repeat the idea in the shams. The only pattern in the room comes from one simple accent pillow.

3: Think outside of the block. 
I love the color blocked curtains and paint in this room, but what I really love are the chairs. By repeating the interesting colors through the furnishings, window treatments and walls, the designer spreads the color around the room.

4: Stay in the shade. 
For a cohesive look, choose colors from the same color card, but in varying intensities.
Paint Quality
5: Take it outside. Color block your outdoor spaces by adding planters, rugs and cushions.

Infarrantly Creative
