Drab Is Not Fab: 20 Posts Celebrating All Things Colorful!

Drab Is Not Fab: 20 Posts Celebrating All Things Colorful!

Cambria Bold
Nov 17, 2011

Apartment Therapy's annual Room for Color contest is in full swing, and once again I'm reminded why, as much as I love a clean, neutral palette, color is king. At Re-Nest we wave our hands (Nuh-uh style!) to those who think having an eco-friendly home relegates you to a life of brown and beige. In fact, it's quite the opposite! There's no limit to the color inspiration we can glean with Nature as our muse. Thus, here are 20 of our favorite color posts from the archives. (And if these don't make you want to slap a coat of paint on that bare wall, then nothing will!)
