Every room needs a bit of “pop;” you know, that bit of energy and humor that makes a space feel fun and friendly. Today, we’ll investigate our top choices for colors as easy choices when a room needs little something to tie it together and give it a bit of “pop.” We’ll start with a famous designer’s interior designed room, share an accessory that carries the colorful spirit, and finish with how that color sings on back-painted glass. So open your arms and welcome the energy of citron, turquoise, magenta, and coral to your interior design color schemes.

4: The Pop of Coral
Clients may say they don’t like orange, until they see what it can do in simple doses. The below bedroom & office from SB Long Interiors takes a neutral background and introduces warm coral accents and a touch of blue as a foil. It gives the space an energy and youthful feel.

I guarantee that if you add a pop of any one of these colors, you’ll be amazed at how well they add life and pop to a room. They play exceedingly well with other colors as well as neutrals.
