When talking about bold colors it is easy to fall in a trap and think they are welcome only in a very modern space but that's far from the truth. A traditional kitchen with steel appliances can live a new life thanks to colorful details such as pots and pans that will breathe new life into kitchen life every time you take them out to cook. If there is enough space for a big, bright focal point, like an abstract picture, a small effort will yield great results. There is only one rule: don't be afraid to experiment.
In a modern, very bright space, colors are way to go to lift the mood up. Since some retro styles are always in, '60s and '70 are the endless source of ideas what can be done with colors. Mixed with some features we don't see so often in contemporary homes, like metal on the furniture, it can really lift the space up and at the same time create a very modern look although pieces and styles are retro. No need to paint walls in psychedelic colors of the time, bright furniture will do just as well.
Bathroom is a place when you can can be more brave with colors because in their nature they are smaller spaces and different shapes and colors are welcome to make them visually more interesting. Just by taking one dominant color from the rest of the house and playing with shapes can do miracles. This is also a great way to breathe new life into that space that greets you at the beginning of each new day. Let it shine, let it be bright, and every morning will be happy and joyful.
Bedroom is a place you come in at the end of the day and jump in the bed to rest for a new day. But that doesn't mean it has to be dull and boring. On the contrary, bright colors can be used to greet you every morning, a few scattered details or small rugs will create an unexpected scene and make the whole room jolly. Instead of having just a bed in a large, uninspiring room, put some sitting bags in, find a crazy lamp and maybe even a designer's piece and mix it all together. All that will make your bedroom one of the coziest rooms in the house. ■
