Add A Pop Of Color

“Just add a pop of color,” is not just another interior designer catchphrase.  Think of a “pop” as an exclamation point.  The purpose is to use a color with emphasis.  When you see it, you can’t miss it.  However, it does not whack you over the head when you enter a room, it captures your attention, pulls you in. Living room by Susan Zises GreenA pop of color can be as simple as placing an aqua throw and matching pillows on a khaki sofa,  DSCN1161or these artfully placed bowls of fruit on a kitchen countertop.  Notice how the blue glass bowls and lemons really stand out.  DSCN3145Matchy matchy can become boring without an injection of a pop of an unpredicted color.

There are many times when the decorating in a room can start to feel redundant.  This is when using a pop of color can make a huge difference between ho-hum and wow.  Take a look at your interiors, do they need a little oomph?  Where can you use a pop of color?Lisa sig

    You are so right. A pop of color can make the design a true success. I strongly discourage my clients to never buy sets of anything! Nothing worse than a “suite” of furniture or bedding, drapery and towels from the same company!

  2. Ack, eek, blah – are the only words I can come up with for “suite”. Coordinated, yes. Matchy matchy – to generic. However, I do like my towels to match at least by size, not necessarily the w/c, hand and bath but they do need to coordinate. Thanks for the great comment!
