Color blocking has been part of the fashion and home decor industries for ages, and it’s on trend again this year. The idea is simple: It’s about showing off big blocks of your favorite colors so that they can’t be missed. There’s nothing subtle about it; go for the bold!
The more surprising the color combo, the better. (Talk to a designer if you’re not sure about your color choices.) Stick with two or three colors to maximize the impact of each one.
All you beige-lovers can do this too! See how beautiful it looks when you punch the color of the year into your neutrals. It’s a trendy color combination that still comes off looking very polished.
Some simple ways to try color blocking in your home are upholstering a headboard in a bright color and contrasting it with different colored pillows, or upholstering dining room chairs in two to three different colors.
