Inspiration Board: Painted Brights

Who wouldn’t have fun with these colors? Eccentric, bright, and lively, you wouldn’t need to look for inspiration, motivation, or energy with these colors in your home. These colors, though vibrant, could easily be used in a bedroom. Simply pair the bright painted furniture with some neutrals to bring down the tone, while still allowing all colors to live and jive together in one area.
