While turning your entire home one color may be a bit over the top, there are many ways to add the season’s trendiest hues tastefully.
The most obvious way to add a specific color to any room is to paint your walls. That’s also the messiest and the most difficult to change as seasonal design trends change. Changing your home decor is much easier.

In the Living Room
This is probably the easiest room to update because you have so many options. Furniture protectors for your couch, armchair or recliner add color and protect your seating. Decorative pillows and throws are inexpensive and are available in any color you can imagine.
As far as decor, adding or changing your window treatments will make the biggest impact in your space. The living room is the best place to utilize long, flowy curtains.

Another obvious option is a colorful piece of art. Make sure that the size is appropriate for the room. You don’t want to go too small or too large for the space you have. You could also paint a frame in the hot color of the season to go around a large mirror or existing artwork.
An area rug may be more expensive than the other options, but it will make a statement in your space.
In the Kitchen
Pretty vases will decorate your counter tops. They will look even better if you fill them with colorful flowers. You can also fill glass containers with candies or snacks in the color that is trending.
Valances or kitchen tiers are the perfect treatments for kitchen windows.

In the Bedroom
Just like the living room, the bedroom gives you many options to add color. Start with your bed. Change your quilt or comforter set, or at least your shams and throw pillows to incorporate the season’s hot color.
This is also a great room to add colorful curtains and artwork.
