Get tips for adding color from HGTV's David Bromstad

Posted: Updated:
Designer and host of HGTV's Color Splash joined Good Day to share some ways to add color to any room without a lot of work.

1. HOW DO I START ADDING COLOR TO MY SPACE?

Find your inspiration. Let your favorite rug, pillow, artwork or other accessory be your color inspiration. Pick up the colors from these items as you choose additional paint, fabric and accessories for the room.

2. WHAT ARE THE BEST WAYS TO INJECT COLOR INTO A SMALL SPACE?

Using bright colors and pairing them together helps to brighten a small space and create depth in a room. Using mirrors in your wall d├ęcor also helps create the illusion of more space and light!

3. HOW DO YOU BLEND COLORS SO THEY FLOW FROM ONE ROOM TO ANOTHER?

Maintain the flow of color throughout your space by repeating a color or colors from one room to the next. For example, if you have red or orange living room walls, use similarly colored glass accent pieces in the adjoining room. A set of 3-piece amigos vase sets are inexpensive accent pieces that tie together a warm color scheme while adding pop. (Vases, $21.95, at www.cb2.com)

4. I'M AFRAID OF BOLD COLOR, BUT I WANT TO LIVEN UP MY LIVING ROOM.

Start small. Keep all of your big pieces neutral - the couches and chairs - anything that's expensive and an investment. Then you can pop in the trendy or current colors in with paint and accessories that you can change from season to season without breaking the bank. (Pouf, $75 and Happy Chic by Jonathan Adler Nina Geo Lamp, $60, both at JCPenney.com)
