Bright POPS of Color for Your Home

“Colors are the smiles of nature” – Leigh Hunt1

I know some of us can be afraid of color when it comes to decorating our homes, especially bright bold colors. I know I find myself second and even third guessing my color choices. However, taking a risk can result in an amazing new space. To take baby steps into bold color choices you can consider making small changes with accessories. The bright colors in the furnishings below are from the fashion color report for 2012. The bold color palette ranges from tangerine tango orange, the named “The Color of Year,” to trendy Cockatoo teal.

Your Thoughts?

What do you think about these colors? Which colors would you use in your home? What colors do dislike?
