A colorful home is a happy home. So we've compiled this compendium of creative ways to add a little more color to every single room.

Above: This amazingly colorful wall treatment (as seen in a hallway spotted on keltainen talo rannalla) is probably wallpaper, but you could recreate the look with washi tape.

Colorful curtains can also make a big difference — bonus points if they're different colors. From Domino.

Try this: a bright stripe right about the countertop in the kitchen. (If you use a higher gloss paint for this, it'll be easier to clean as well.) And the differently colored cabinet doors are definitely a bold look, but one we can't help but love. Photo from House and Garden.

For a slightly more subtle way to add color in the kitchen, try some brightly colored barstools (as seen in Judy and Don's Houston home).

Here's an idea that's especially nice for the dining room — ombre chairs. They don't even have to match. Photo from Decor8.

I think this funky painted door would be a great way to add a little color to a bedroom. DIY from One Kings Lane.

The bathroom is a great place for a colorful rug, like this one spotted in a Dutch home from My Scandinavian Home. (You can buy the rug on Etsy.)

Or use paint to make an unfortunate feature into an exciting one, like Kristen did with the exposed pipes in her Denver home.
