Celebrating color all this month, we've been bringing you tons of fun posts about all kinds of different ways you can bring in color to your home, like through your front door, colorful wall hangings, wall paint and even architectural details.

My roommate and I have had this odd space in our apartment ever since we moved in 6 months ago. Not quite big enough to use as a dining room but too big for just an entryway, we decided early on what this room needed was a drum kit. Imagine my delight and surprise when the one my roommate chose to purchase was anything but bland!

This drum kit isn't just orange—it's like the colors of a sunrise: a warm, golden red-orange that absolutely enlivens the room. Not only is this drum kit going to give this room some much-needed direction (yes, we realize some art on the walls could help, as well), it's a huge shot of color into our space.

What's the oddest or most unique item you've ever had that brought color into your space? Do you have colorful musical instruments in your home? Maybe a salvaged vintage sign? Something else? Tell us about the interesting ways that color has come into your home!
