11 Ways to Add a Splash of Color to Your Home - Pier 1


Adding a fresh burst of color to your home instantly invigorates the space and creates a cheery vibe. If you’re looking for easy ideas to brighten your look, get inspired by these quick tricks to infuse color into any room in your home. 

Pillows & Throws

Cheer up your neutral pillows and throws by adding pops of bright hues to give your sofa, bed, or accent chairs an instant makeover. To create a wow-worthy arrangement of pillows, choose a variety of shapes, sizes, colors, and patterns.

Faux Florals

Adding blossoming blooms to your look is a surefire way to amp up the energy. Whether you go green and leafy or colorful and floral, these nods to nature will boost the color quotient of your home and enliven your spirits.


Nothing spotlights your space quite like artistic lighting. A bold and bright table lamp adds the first colorful pop. Then, the illumination shines the light on your fresh new decor, adding an extra dimension of brilliance to your style. 

Area Rugs

Why let your walls have all the colorful fun? Adorn your floors with resplendent rugs in intricate patterns and intense hues. As an extra bonus, dark multi-colored rugs are genius at hiding dirt! 

Tip: To work a colorful rug cohesively into a room, choose a rug with at least one existing color from your space.


Once you’ve invigorated your style with potent pops of color, magnify the effect by reflecting your newfound radiance throughout the room. A strategically placed mirror will do all the work for you! Extra credit if your mirror is embellished with complementary hues. 

Wall Art

Who said you have to paint your wall to feature it as an accent? Oversized wall art in eye-catching colors creates a showstopping look. You can also use your wall art to introduce new hues to your palette to play off your pillows, throws, and rugs. 


A seasonal refresh to your bedding is always a welcome change. Transition your bedroom look from cozy winter neutrals to lively upbeat hues that announce the arrival of spring. Choose a dynamic, colorful print for bedding that doubles as art.
