Emily Henderson of HGTV's Secrets from a Stylist tackled the question of how to incorporate strong color into your space when you're afraid of color commitment.

True to her signature approach to design, she talked about decorating in terms of layering. Her first piece of advice was to start with a neutral base of investment pieces, such as the sofa, that you won't be switching out anytime soon. Next was to pick a few bold accent colors and distribute them throughout the space with less expensive pieces that can be easily switched out.

For more images, the full post and a fun little gif that shows the concept in action, check out her blog.
