With all the focus on varying shades of pastels these days (we're looking at you, millennial pink!), it can be easy to forget that bright colors are still a consistent design trend, too. Sometimes a simple, solitary pop of color is all you need, but if you're feeling more adventurous, try pairing two (or three!) together to really pull the room together. If you're uncertain about taking the plunge, let the beautiful inspiration images below guide you gently into the primary color waters.

Emily Henderson's colorful revamp of Joy from Oh Joy's design studio features the perfect injections of color while keeping the large gallery wall background more muted. By pairing a mid-century style velvet forest green sofa with deep red side chairs and a smattering of colorful pillows, the effect feels welcome and inviting.

Designer Miles Redd chose to focus his colorful vision on a bold, electric blue settee with a geometric yellow and white piece of art hanging overhead. For some pattern, the Kelly green branch wallpaper and turquoise and brown pillows are the perfect touch.

If Moroccan decor is more your speed, this colorful abode might be the inspiration of your dreams. Featuring an array of reds, oranges, blues, greens, and even pinks (yes, pinks!), this welcoming space is just begging for you to grab a cub of tea and a book and curl up on the tufted sofa.

This bright, sun-filled space, also by Miles Redd manages to incorporate a wide array of colors without feeling to busy. The substantial eggplant sofa plays perfectly off the blue wallpaper, and the oversized regency club chairs offer up a perfectly unexpected pop of pink.
