Add a tasteful, bright pop of color to your doors
Some people may think that adding a bright color to a room could make it a bit overwhelming, but one tasteful way to have fun with bright colors is to paint the bold color of your choice around the edge of a door: Making it visible but not overshadowing or distracting, says Taylor.
Doing this is also a great conversation starter!
Brighten up your bookshelves
The easiest way to add color to your room is to just stick it on, according to Taylor. To brighten up a bookshelf, he simply attached stick-on wallpaper to the back and sides to add a subtle pop of color that doesn't disrupt the look you already have going in your room.
Taylor also recommends de-cluttering and organizing your bookshelf. If it is stacked with pictures that your kids may have made for you, one way to give this handmade art new life on the shelf is to frame it.
He also recommends hiding all technology: leaving cords and routers out can quickly make a space look messy. Taylor suggests choosing a decorative storage basket with a color contrast to the bookshelf to hide the mess while still staying organized.
Put up mirrors with bright-colored borders
Mirrors can add so much to room,according to Taylor, including adding more depth and personality to your space.
Taylor suggests spicing up a traditional mirror with a bold-hued frame, or grouping together small framed mirrors on a wall. If you are shy to color, these framed mirrors are great because the color is especially subtle.
