I wanted to name this post ‘I ain’t afraid of no
ghost color’ but I can’t do a strikethrough on the title. So, let’s just pretend.
I think it goes without saying that I am a big fan of white interiors. White walls. White floors. White everything. BUT there is definitely something to be said for color as well. When I was in high school, I distinctly remember wanting to paint every room in my imaginary college apartment a different color. Which would have been utterly insane. But that’s what I wanted at the time. Man, how things have changed!
The only downside to color is that it’s much harder to get it ‘right’. I mean it’s easy to make things looks good when you have white walls (hello gallery), but color? That’s a whole lot more difficult, if you ask me.
Here are a handful of bold uses of color that are absolutely doing it right…

This tile backsplash is amazing. Don’t you think? (found via designlovefest)
Doesn’t that artwork look great on a royal blue backdrop like that? Never thought I would say that, but it’s true.

Salmon walls with that emerald green chair? Now, that is bold! And also, perfect.
And these jewel-toned, dark teal stairs are pretty great too.
So what do you think? Would you dare to try any of these colors on your walls (or stairs for that matter)?
