Whilst working out how I want to decorate my living room, I have been investigating various ways of applying hints of colour.
If you like the minimal and uncluttered look, yet don’t want your room to look stark, and if you have white walls and you want to add accents of colour or pattern, then you can add interest by injecting some colour and pattern. This can be done by either accessorizing and/or accentuating certain features of the room, such as doors, window frames, small walls etc… By doing this, you will give your room an identity, personal to you.
I am particularly interested in using bright, ‘neon’ colours. I absolutely love what can be done with these colours and may consider applying it to a door or adding brightly coloured accessories when decorating my living room.
Here are some examples of what I have been looking at :-

DOORS,WINDOWS,WALLS AND BRIGHT LIGHTING
This neon lime green looks fab with the black and white wallpaper.
Just add a border around each door panel.
Yellow window frame with yellow and green accessories.
Neon red contrasting with the neutral colour palette.
Neon pink lighting on white walls.
Bright yellow cabinet picking out the yellows in the rug.
Green drawers stand out against the white walls and look great with the black television and colours within the artwork.
COLOURFUL ABSTRACT ART AND SOFT FURNISHINGS
Injecting hints of cobalt blue and yellow within the neutral palette.
Pink and blue shades look pretty against the white sofa and walls.
Love the yellows, orange and blue tones in the white bedroom. They are enough and not overpowering for a relaxing bedroom.
PATTERNED WALLPAPER WITH PLAIN FURNITURE
Plain yellow chair and blue patterned floral wallpaper.
Gold polka dots and cerise pink chair look very glam!
Multi coloured floral and leaf patterned wallpaper adds interest with white interior walls and chair.
The red neon table looks fab against the small floral wallpaper.
