Top 3 Rooms to Use Bold Colors


Bold colors are all the rage these days, but they are especially great in specific rooms. We went to the net to find out what designers were saying and found their top three favorite rooms to use bold colors when decorating. This doesn’t mean you can’t use bold colors in other rooms just as successfully, but these rooms are the ones many designers are focusing on when it comes to the use of bold colors in their decorating schemes. Rooms that formerly were only thought to be properly designed if they came in all white or neutral colors, these spaces are ripe for bringing a bit of color and pizazz to. Your individual taste and preference is the design theme of today and making every room in your home uniquely your own is now the new trend.

While neutral tones are fine, today’s trend is all about creating spaces that make you and your family happy.
