Interior design blogs — including this one — are filled with black and white rooms and with way more than 50 shades of grey, so today I thought I’d showcase some spaces that use color. These rooms were chosen simply because they feature color in some way and they all appealed to me. Are you using color in your own home? Let me know what your thoughts are on color in interior design.

Red

Lots of terrific reds going on here. | japanesetrash.com

The various reds here, from the interesting wall pattern to the sculpture and hangings, create a ton of energy in an otherwise traditional space. What about that door?!

Orange

Orange bedroom designed by Robert & Cortney Novogratz. | japanesetrash.com

Robert and Cortney Novogratz are favorite designers for me, and this orange bedroom in their New England home makes me smile. BTW, have you seen their new website?

Yellow

A completely groovalicious space. | japanesetrash.com

Love the vibe of this space, which goes from nice to groovalicious because of that yellow fauxdenza. And the awesome graphic prints!

Green

A handsome and serene living room. | japanesetrash.com

Using color doesn’t always equate to the over used “pop of color” dictum; this green living room is handsome and serene. Terrific accessories here, too.

Blue

Another serene space with deep blue walls. | japanesetrash.com

This deep blue color adds a layer of mystery to this otherwise relaxed space. I’m digging all the great textures here.

A library in the bathroom? Would you? | jpanesetrash.com

Books in the bathroom? A shiny gold front door? Black particleboard kitchen?

Life—and interior design—is filled with decisions and, luckily, people are like snowflakes: no two of us are exactly alike. So, interior design choices can sometimes strike one person as nirvana and another person as nonsensical. I like to think that in our own spaces we should be free to express ourselves however we like. Fly our freak flags, so to speak.– See more at: The Interior Collective.
