31 Day Challenge

Guaranteed Rainbow in an Umbrella

by Kim @ CoziNest on October 19, 2016

A bright color palette is cheerful. I like having neutral walls and furniture so that my art can be the focal point. Here’s a look at using vibrant colors on Day 19 of 31 Days of Decorating Tabletops.

Curved Sofa
Our curved sofa was purchased at consignment shop. I loved the shape, the neutral tones and the black wood.

Oval Back Chairs
Gold fabric on these oval-shaped back chairs was irresistible. The shape of the chairs with the wide seats and curved arms mirror the curve in the sofa.

Peter Max over the Mantel
Peter Max’s “Umbrella Man” is the inspiration for this room. The color on the mantel and in the bookcases were chosen to bring out the vibrancy of this painting.

TV and Bookcase

Colored bottles were the perfect accessory found at Tuesday Morning.

Adding Color to a Mantel

Decorative Spheres

A tray of spheres tie all the colors together. Pinks, purples, greens, yellow and blue are all part of this cheerful rainy day.

Umbrella Man

Using color can enhance our imagination, increase humor, help us relax or stimulate our creativity.

Gold and White Pillows

Gold accent pillows tie the chairs together with the couch. The white is a great contrast with the burlap colored sofa.

Using a rainbow of colors in our decorating palette equals smiles and humor in our day; even if there’s rain in the forecast.
