If the thought of splashing vivid colors all over your walls makes your heart skip like an old record, we’ve got a way to dip your toes in the pigment pool without getting completely wet. One of the best tricks for refreshing a room is switching up the accessories. So go upscale or go budget-conscious—there’s no lack of choices when it comes to exuberant pieces.
For this bathroom—in Annie’s own house—the sleek, modern cabinets and hardware and the steely tones of the shower tiles and countertops are given an infusion of sock-it-to-me color. Pink takes center stage on the towels and in the bright, wide stripe of the rug—which, in turn, is echoed on the cosmetics bag displayed on the counter.
Fresh flowers aren’t just for the dining or living room, so here we’ve leaned a couple of butterfly-bright gerbera daisies against a contrasting green glass vase. Since soaps and shower gels often come in an array of Magic Marker hues, we suggest taking this as a divine sign that you should buy as many as you can fit in your cabinets. After all, who ever wanted less of a good thing?
