I’ve been feeling like my living room is really bland lately and have wanted to infuse a bit of color in there. With the couch, the walls and curtains all being really neutral, adding color to the living room would definitely bring some excitement to the space. I like to keep the larger pieces of a room less flashy so that I can add pops of color with throw pillows, blankets, art, accessories and even plants.
Here’s an example of what I started with. Time to go shopping!

I’m on a navy blue kick right now and knew that these throw pillows from Wayfair would be perfect for the couch. I wanted to keep things simple with a solid color pillow behind my grey ticking ones. They have a slight texture to them that adds a bit of interest to their solid color.
I carried over the navy to the coffee table with a cute ceramic candle holder.
Another great way to bring in color and texture to a room is to add plants. It doesn’t even have to be bright, colorful flowers. Don’t underestimate the power of a few touches of green. This faux fiddle leaf fig tree brings a much needed pop of color and life to the space…
…as well as preserved boxwood. I placed some in a terra cotta pot and also hung a wreath from the armoire to break up some of the dark wood tones. I love how versatile boxwood is. You can use it for any season and it smells wonderful, too!
An old plaid throw blanket in a side basket ties the green and navy together perfectly.
I’m really loving these added touches of color. It balances out all of the neutrals quite nicely.
