A vibrant sofa, a flashy sideboard, light fixtures and colorful furniture are able to change a room with neutral tones. We have seen in other posts that colors have the ability to transform an environment, but often the question arises as to how to combine a colorful furniture with the rest of the decoration. That's why the Easy Decor prepared some tips for not exaggerating in the dose of color and intensity!
The easiest way to combine colorful furniture is with a base in neutral colors and a mobile with highlight color. Bet, for example, on a key piece in space, a color dresser takes personality into the room, taking care only that the rest of the environment has balanced colors, including the wall and sofa.
For those who like manual work, you can restore that old furniture with the process of sanding and painting. In addition to having a new part, the furniture stays with your personality and becomes an exclusive piece!
Another proposal is to mix two colors in the environment, an example is who wants to have colored furniture, either in parts or accessories. An alternative is to play with the tones - composed with candy colors or in stronger tones like a bic blue and a pink rose for example. In the latter case the mixture of contrasting colors leaves the atmosphere cheerful and vibrant.

If you want to change the look of the house, bet on the colorful furniture. Besides being a trend in decoration, they combine with all styles, from the most deprived to the most modern. Check out a few environments and see how to apply these tips in your home:
Colorful kitchen furniture
The current designs of modern kitchens do not necessarily need to have sober colors with a clean look throughout the environment. The colors can be part of the project and bring more joy and liveliness to the place. We can see the touch of color in kitchen cabinets, cabinet doors, countertops, shelves and decorative objects such as vases, chairs, niches and so on.
If you plan to use several colors in the kitchen, the ideal is to choose pastels that do not leave the environment so heavy. If you are a fan of any stronger color such as red, orange and dark blue, try applying it in only one or two pieces of furniture, depending on the size of the area.
