Sure, an all-white home is the perfect canvas for some creative decorating. But, if you need a quick fix for a boring home, try painting your walls a different hue. Whether you use it as an accent wall or are bold enough to paint the whole room, a little colour always works.

Pink will give a room a sweet glow. If you think it is a colour for nurseries, add some bold-hued (like yellow or green) accessories and watch how it all comes together! 

(See how this home used a dark turquoise wall here.)

Dark green is a good alternative to black, if you want something moody but not flat out morbid. For a more elegant look, pair it with touches of gold.

Don't be afraid to use Black, just pair it with neutrals or lighter shades. That way, the black will not overwhelm the room or make it visually smaller.

Yellow brings luminance and energy to any space. The yellow accent wall in this open-concept setting, with lots of natural sunlight and a pool, is a cheerful touch.

Can't decide between two colours? Combine it for a two-toned room.
