GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - Color blocking is fun way to refresh your home and bring more energy and color to it. When you mix and match colors that work well together, it can bring a new look to your furniture and accent pieces.
So, what's the best way to do it? Look for color combinations that are bright, bold and pleasant to the eye. The combination should also be easy on the eye but attract attention. Look for fun prints for inspiration of color combinations.
If you're not ready to make a big move with replacing furniture, throw pillows are great for practicing a color blocking technique. Take a good combination of colors and scatter them across the room in pillows. Or think about rugs or other accent pieces.
Color blocking can easily take an average room and transform it to something more modern, traditional or daring. The best part is that it's not permanent, and you can change your color pallet frequently.
