Use Color As An Accent Piece

If you’re looking for a stand out piece in the room you’re styling, opt for an overall neutral color palette and then add in a colorful furniture piece to catch the eye.


Colorful accent chairs are a great way to add a pop of color - like the McKenna Accent Chair in rosewood that adds a chic touch to any space with it’s sleek, gold flat base and modern arch back. Accent chairs can be used in the dining room or living room to create a fashionable look that will be perfect for entertaining guests whether it’s a fancy dinner party or a casual catch up with a friend. Mixing in accents of gold with natural elements like a wooden table or coffee table creates a warm and inviting tone to a room with a subtle glam factor.

A colored bench is a versatile furniture piece as it can be used at the foot of the bed, in an entryway, or under a window for added functionality and style. Pro tip: add on throw pillows to bring even more color into your space. Charming yet functional, a bench can offer a place to sit for putting on shoes or resting tired feet, and the Sunday Morning Storage Bench also features hidden storage perfect for extra throws or slippers.  The Sunday Morning Storage Bench also comes in a sunny marigold yellow.

Don’t Be Color Shy

Adding color doesn’t have to be scary! Play around with earth tones to bring more warmth to a space creating a serene environment you’ll never want to leave.

Mix and match earthy colors like the apricot and terracotta colorways in the Be Kind Accent Chair to achieve a sophisticated look with a subtle, playful element. Small pops of these light and rich shades complement well with neutral pieces for an effortless vibe. A muted colorful rug is a great way to ground the space while adding greenery with large plants to create balance. Add more touches of color by pairing throws and accent pillows in similar tones like the Have Faith Fringe Throw or the Have Faith Throw Pillow in peach.

Accessorize With Color

Accessories are such an easy way to add in pops of color to any room.  They can also easily be changed in and out or moved around when you feel the room needs a quick refresh.

Accessorize with a colored décor piece like the Flourish Ceramic Vase.  The gorgeous green color on this vase adds a vibrant pop and pairing it with dried or faux florals will instantly cheer up any space! Vases can be used to add a more organic element if used to hold greenery or they can be styled by itself on a shelf or entryway table with other décor pieces to achieve a more put-together space.

Modern Boho Bedroom

Throw in some color to a more neutral space by adding beautiful peach and green tones into the mix.  The Have Faith Fringe Throw and Have Faith Throw Pillow match back together as a perfect pairing for the bedroom or on the living room couch.  Not only will they add some color, but they also bring more depth and texture to a space when layered together with other pieces.
