Color blocking, is a method of using multiple solid colors. The look revolves around a palette of two or more colors, usually in bold and bright shades. The result is a simple yet very chic look. Prints and patterns are typically not used in color blocking, as such designs and patterns would take away from the “blocked” visual.

The idea is to use vibrant colors in abundance. Fresh, bright hues work the best. Make a neutral room pop with a splash of geometric color. In order to avoid any color over-bearing, it is recommended to use a neutral palette of whites, grey or creams for the walls and floorings. Then we can play around with chunky colorful furniture and d├ęcor accessories.

The best part about color blocking is that there are no rules. We can play with as many colors as we want. But a minimum of 3 colors is a must, which would help rotate the overall look of the place. Sharp lines help demarcate the colors from one another.

We love that color blocking is not limited to just the runway. In home decor land, it’s one of the easiest ways to add modern flair to your living space.


Let’s play with colors all the way through 2015!
