People use it now to add a touch of modernity to their homes. Color blocking is all about using some bold colors together without giving excessive thought to how well they match with each other. Color blocking does not need colors that match well, as it is all about mixing any and every bold color. Color blocking is done with blocks of bold colors in geometric or random designs. Following are some tips that can help you use this color-blocking theme for your home décor in the best possible way.

To save yourself from too much expense, you can choose particular things and places in the home to display this theme. For instance, you can play with colors on your table, be it a coffee table, a center table, or your dining table. Talking about the dining table, get rid of those similar looking old tablemats and napkins, and choose two or three solid colors for your table décor. This will bring such a pleasant change to the same old dining table, and you and your family will simply love spending a great deal of time over meals.


Another very effective way of a color block décor is to make the accessories stand out from the rest. Keep the wall color mild, and play with colors of the sofas, chairs, couch, curtains, cushions and pillows. You can choose any contrasting colors that you like, or these days you can also get readymade pillow and cushion covers based on color block theme from the market.
