A Pop of Color in Unexpected Places

A few weeks ago I shared a DIY that I created on the doors in our entryway. I was trying to add a pop of color, but ended up going with a dark shade on the edges of the doors. (I pretty much chickened out!)

There are so many great ideas around the web on how to add color in unexpected places. These pops of color really keep your eye moving around a space.

Not sure about the Ombre, but how cute would it be to add a pop of color to the kick plates of your staircase!?

There are so many great idea of adding a pop of color to a dresser or vanity. You can chose to spice up the side of the drawers or the inside with paint and/or decorative paper.

Now...this is very unexpected, but I love! Painting just the trim around the window in an all white kitchen!

How about adding some color to your dining room chairs and leaving the rest of the room neutral. It sure would add that pop that you are looking for! could go with the opposite. Painting the table and keeping the chairs neutral. Loving the orange!

Here is the inspiration picture that I had for my entryway. Imagine the possibilities...closets, kids rooms, bathrooms, pantry doors... you could go crazy!

I absolutely love this idea...could be my FAV of the day! Painting the curtain rods and finials a bright color. They would look fabulous in a neutral nursery or kids room!

All of these ideas would be a great addition to any home that needs just a little punch of color. Your space may be pretty neutral, but how fun would it be to add just one of these items!? The guests would be talking.... I tell ya!

Happy Hump Day All!


  1. I think my favorite is the stairs, using the colors from a paint chip card! I see this one in my future. Great ideas!

  2. All great ideas, Amy. I especially like the idea of painting or papering the inside of the drawers. It's been on my "to do list" for a while now!
