      Incorporating Color into your Designs

      About the Designer
      Tamara Day is the host of HGTV’s Bargain Mansions and the owner of Growing Days Home. Tamara’s trademarked style, Laid Back Luxe, combines touches of glam with a cozy liveable vibe so your space is both beautiful and practical.


      Anyone that knows me knows I love color. I love using color in surprising ways and incorporating it in unusual places. Adding color into your spaces can be really intimidating, so here are a few ways I like to add color!

      Ceiling Paint

      I painted the ceiling in my store, Growing Days Home, a beautiful pink, and our customers always compliment it. I loved it so much I decided to paint the ceiling in my baby girl's room too! It's an unexpected addition to designs. Adding a color to the ceiling makes spaces feel so cozy!

      Unexpected Rooms

      In my designs, I like to make unexpected rooms unique, like mudrooms and laundry rooms. You don’t always go into those rooms, so making them bright and colorful makes getting those chores done a little more enjoyable!

      Wallpaper

      I really love wallpaper. Wallpaper elevates your design and makes your space feel extra special. There are unlimited options when it comes to wallpaper. It is like art that covers your whole wall! What is better than that?

      Wall Art

      Speaking of art, add a big, colorful piece of art to your space. Not only does art add color, but it is always a fun conversation starter when you have guests over! Find a piece that you love and that represents you.

      Accent Wall

      Find a bold color, fun wallpaper, or interesting tile and pop it on one wall! To keep your accent wall a central focal point, add floating shelves to display all of your pretty accessories.

      Accessories

      It can be intimidating to bring bold color into your home. I love adding color and personality through accessories. Right now, I really love coffee table books! Stack them up to add height and color to your space.

      Rugs

      Rugs bring in color, pattern, texture, and they help ground your space. I like bright, colorful rugs in kitchens and hallways to lighten up somewhat neutral space.

      However you decide to incorporate color, I don’t think you can ever have too much color in a space. Trust me, I’ve even painted a barn pink before!
