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.

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.

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.
