If you ever find yourself getting tired of stark, designy interiors in unforgiving palettes of black and white, you're in luck. Color is back in a big way, and nowhere is that more apparent than in these nine exciting (and happily hued) trends.

1. Oversized abstract paintings.
We're spotting happily comingled, eye-pleasing colors on canvases everywhere (like in this room from Interiormagasinet). Two of our favorite artists creating works like these are Michelle Armas and Claire Desjardins.

2. Jewel tones.
Deep, rich colors (like on these velvet pillows from H&M) are big for the home right now.

3. Textile art.
Textile wall hangings (like this one from Juju Just) are a great way to add color AND texture.

4. Boucherouite rugs.
These colorful, graphic Moroccan rag rugs (like this one in a room from Femina) will add a jolt of luscious color to any space.

5. Rocks.
Minerals have a mysterious, inexplicable beauty, and they come in pretty much any color you can imagine. Wood mineral display from Stone and Violet.

6. Plants.
Plants (like this indoor tree in a space from Nuevo Estilo) are nature's way of adding color. They're a great way to add a little style and a little green to any interior.

7. Colorful tile.
Colorful tiles (like the encaustic tile in this kitchen from HomeLife) are a great way to add a little color to a modern kitchen.

8. Neon.
Neon signs (like this one in a space from The Glitter Guide) are fun, offbeat way to add a little color to a space (and send a message, too).

9. Otomi prints.
These colorful embroideries from Mexico (like this one, used as a coverlet in a bedroom from Rue) will bring a little cheer to even the dullest of spaces.
