brightly colored art in a grey room

Brightly colored paintings pop in a neutral space.

Here in a neutral room, this brightly colored painting (Come Splash in the Fountain) comes to life. The colors take on a jewel like quality against the neutral grey.

Also, you don’t need to have items that match the colors in the painting exactly to have a great result. Because the red in the pillow is an orange-y red it works beautifully with the more subdued red-orange of the building in the painting.

Neutrals are great for creating a feel for a room and not being overwhelming. Greys, creams, whites, and browns are the most common neutrals, but a trip down the paint aisle at home depot will tell you that the world of neutrals is way more than just four colors.

Let’s look at some more, just for fun.

And let’s stay with the same painting.

The painting shows the idea that you don’t have to exactly match the color of a painting to your accessories to create harmony.

In another white room, the green in the painting ties in with the greens in the room – the other main color in the room’s design. In this setting, the painting contributes to a relaxing vibe, with the blues and oranges creating some energy in the room.
