A Rainbow of Reasons to Add Colorful Furniture

A Rainbow of Reasons to Add Colorful Furniture

Don't think you could ever put a pink chair in your bedroom? Or an orange credenza in your living room? Don't be so sure about the color you could or couldn't put where! We found a slew of surprising furniture hues popping up in house tours, old and new.

More than just adding colorful furniture to already boldly colored spaces, these examples are in spaces where you might not expect it. (Okay, some of these were expected, but still delightful!) Consider it motivation and inspiration for your own home. If you've been feeling like you might need a strong pop of color on a furniture piece in your space but haven't known where to start, check out the ideas in these photos. Find a color palette similar to your own and see what they did. The best part? You might even be able to take a piece of furniture you already have and paint it!
