5 Simple Tips in Adding Color to Your Carillon Lakes Community Home


Different colors mean a lot of different things to everyone. Some like calm blues and greens while other prefer energetic reds and yellows. For your new homeowners or old residents who just want to add color to their home in Carillon Lakes community, here are some really simple ways to do so without using any paint:


Brighten any space in your Carillon Lakes community home with these easy tips!


Use colorful seating.

One way to add a pop of color to a room with neutral palette is to use colorful furniture. How about yellow and orange high stools for the bar? Or a dark blue upholstered sofa in an all-white living room? Making sure that at least one piece of seating is colorful can already add to any room it’s in.


Add accent rugs and carpets.

Another easy way to add color to any room of your house in Carillon Lakes community is by using colorful accent rugs and carpets. Try a nice blue and white striped rug for the kitchen. Use a soft blush pink carpet for a bedroom. Drape a colorful rug on the edge of your sofa to break the monotonous color of any living room furniture set.


Use flowers.

Plants can easily liven up any room. Apart from giving your space fresh air and a wonderful smell, using flowery plants can easily add that extra pop of color to your home. From red roses to yellow sunflowers to violets, daisies, and more, you can never go wrong with flowers. You can display them on the coffee table or as a dining table centerpiece.


Color-coordinate your bookshelf.

There are many ways to color coordinate your bookshelves. Group books by color. Stack same-colored book spines together. For an added wow factor, you can even use different wallpapers to line the inside of your shelves. You can also use the space to add extra color by placing fun colorful items such as quirky bookends and more.


Display a collection.

If you’re a collector, then what better way to show your love for your passion than to proudly display them on the walls of your Carillon Lakes community home. Add a bit of your personality to your home’s design. Love collecting art? Take your favorite pieces out for display. Been collecting action figures since you were a kid? Put them all together in a big display cabinet in the family room. Your collection doesn’t just brighten a room, it’s a really great conversation starter, too!


You don’t always need a fresh batch of new paint just to add color to your home. All you really need is a little imagination and the ability to take those colorful design risks. So go ahead, try any of these tips and let us know which colorful advice you loved best.
