Sticking to a limited color palette isn't the only way to design a home that looks inviting and pulled together. Caroline and Jayden are the colorful couple who live in the cozy Atwater Village home shown here an they saw absolutely no hue limitations when they designed their place. That said it's not always easy to go bold this successfully, so we compiled a few foolproof tips from Caroline and Jaden's place to keep you color heads from venturing into Peewee's Playhouse territory.
1. Use large scale items to ground the space and keep it from feeling overwhelming
With so many colors around to attract your gaze, having some large scale items is a great way to ground a space and give some moments of pause. Caroline and Jayden and used many of their own rugs (they own Coco Carpets) and large-scale prints throughout their home, to balance the mid-size and smaller items.
2. Incorporate plants to keep things feeling real.
So much vibrant color can start to feel artificial and cold, as it's not often naturally occurring in most landscapes. Bringing in the natural beauty of the outdoors via house plants and flowers is a great way to add life and warmth.
3. Buy items made from high-quality materials to add sophistication
It's easy to find bright colors at your local toy store or party supply shop, but artificial dyes and cheap plastics are not the best way to keep your colorful home feeling warm and sophisticated. High quality doesn't necessarily always come with a high price tag either - scour your local thrift stores for vibrant items made out of good materials such as ceramic and wool which will make things feel more authentic and rich in character.
