You can take color inspiration from almost anything and everything, for instance, getting inspired by the colors in your artwork will add a whole new level of cohesiveness and aesthetic appeal to the room.
Use color-blocked curtains
If painting the walls isn’t really your thing or may feel too dramatic to you, then using color-blocked curtains might be the easiest choice for you. And mind you, don’t be under the impression that curtains don’t play any role in tying the room together. Well, they certainly play a bigger role and can easily make or break a room with its appearance. You can either get a color-blocked fabric from the stores or you can choose to DIY your old curtain by attaching a contrasting piece of fabric to its lower half.

It will help in adding colors and brightness to otherwise a dull room.

From colorful paintings to quirky wall clocks, wall art is yet another way of introducing color blocking to the room. Besides that, you can also use many other different things to infuse the color block theme into your space. It is a very fun and interesting way of playing with colors and to make your walls appear more fashionable and trendy.

Spruce up the decor of your table
Your table doesn’t have to look very color coordinated and orderly. You can also work up the decor of your table to change things a bit, and it is probably the best temporary solution you can incorporate into your house. Some decor pieces like table cloths and runners are the best way to display some colors on your table. Napkins can also be worked upon to change things a bit. However, just be sure the way you have arranged things complement each other nicely.
