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.

I’m really attracted to these spaces because they feature simple interior design — no tricks or amazing feats of decorating are needed to emulate this in your own home. Take a look and see if you agree.

Simple Interior Design: Living Room

This relaxed living room looks so comfortable. | japanesetrash.com

This living room very smartly relies on the texture provided by the floor to do the heavy lifting; all of the pieces are simple and easy. The layering of cushions and the added rugs are just right.

Simple Interior Design: Bedroom

This simple bedroom is just right. | japanesetrash.com

Probably the trickiest thing about this bedroom is the use of two pendants on either side of the bed. Everything else is simplicity itself–and those lamps aren’t a huge distraction for me.

Simple Interior Design: Outside

Outside may be the easiest place to keep it simple with design. | japanesetrash.com

Outside may be the easiest place to keep it simple with design, but this is just right. I could see myself enjoying the fire and a glass of that wine.
