Interior Decor Inspiration: Colour Popping

Recently, I've been shopping....A LOT....in furniture stores.
The reason behind all these shopping is because I'll be moving into my new place soon.
*fingers crossed, it will be ready in the next 2 weeks*


I was very inspired with what I've seen in those designer furniture stores.
Everything was SO pretty!!
So I've decided to start a new category for this space of mine with interior decoration ideas and inspirations.

Today's post will be about furnishing a neutral toned area with a POP of colour.
I love to see accents of colour here and there on neutral furniture or in a neutral coloured room.

Here are some 'colour popping' inspiration photos that I love:

Everything I love in one picture. :) 
I’ve always loved a plain picture with accents of brighter colour here and there.

It would be so nice to have this nice little area just to chill out with friends or read a good book.

My favourite picture would be the 2nd and the last picture.

Which is your favourite?




On a fashion related note, colour blocking is a current hot trend at the moment. But I much prefer 
neon on neutrals rather than two bold colours together.

So that's what I've been doing in my place. Lol.

I basically have a black & off white palette with wood floors & statement pieces with a bright blue wall or in the kitchen red anodised accessories etc.

Raising my coffee cup to you in admiration of this post today. :)

I LOVE color popping! Seriously that is one of my favorite effects for outfits,decorating and style in general :) Great post. I'm still gushing over that first photo, with the pink lamps. I am also moving soon, so I'll definitely be pinning some of these for apartment inspiration :)

Sara said...

Oh hurray - new houses are so exciting! Stressful and exhausting at first, but the shopping definitely makes up for it!
My favourite decor is always neutral with a colour accent. I remember a spread in a magazine years ago that had everything painted white, with a different colour pop for each room. I wish so much I'd torn it out, but these pictures remind me of it a lot!

I want every single room that you posted!I LOVE that purple room with the huge windows and chandelier. Reminds me of a romantic flat in Paris!

I didn't realize how similar this weekly post is to my new post about apartment colors! Looks like we both have a fascination with apartments :)

Have a good weekend too! I'm so happy you are a follower!
