I found this picture on weheartit, and I posted it because this is a good example of what a little color can do with an interior. The base of the room is in earth colors, the accessories are nice and the styling is tidy. But still, it's the blue writing on the wall that catches our eye. I think this color is very nice, and i also think it makes the entire picture a lot more interesting (a lot more than if "Keep Calm" wasn't hung on the wall). Imagine if the writing would have been in black or gray? It wouldn't had been as pretty to look at, and the writing would have blended in with all the other things. A hint of color does a lot, and you'll come a long way a discreet use of color in your home. You don't have to go outside your comfort-zone and use bright colors as bright yellow and neon pink in every corner in your home, but try a small amount like shown in this picture. Everyone needs a little color in their everyday life!
