14 Spaces That Will Make You Want to Color Block Every Room in Your House

Forget what you’ve heard, color blocking (the use of blocks of color — usually bold or bright) applies to more than just fashion. This colorful trend — influenced, in part, by Dutch artist Piet Mondrian — is a hit in the world of interior design, too. And it’s not hard to see why. Besides being a great excuse to experiment with complementary color combos, it also shows off your fun, playful personality and tbh it just looks pretty darn cool. Here are 14 color-blocked rooms that will convince you to throw a painting party ASAP.

1. Create a candy-pink escape.

Every morning would be a good one working in this bright home office designed by Nancy Riesco. Otherwise-white walls keep the hot pink and pop of yellow from becoming loud and overwhelming.

Rectangular pillows add depth and variety to your couch or bed. Individually cut and sewn by hand, each pillow features a double-sided print and is finished with a concealed zipper and faux down insert. Mix and match patterns and designs or use as complements to our throw pillows and bring your home’s look together. Available in four sizes.

2. Divide with pastels.

Need to keep two halves of a bedroom visually separated while keeping the space cohesive? The Parisian Hôtel Henriette, as featured on Avenue Lifestyle, found the perfect pastel solution: pale mint and peach paints that are just different enough.

It’s easy to get lost in sleep in our warm yet lightweight comforters. Colors pop on this bedding staple and they will surely be the focal point of your bedroom’s decor. Choose from either synthetic microfiber or our natural fiber cotton. Available in Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen and King sizes.

3. Add color to a kid’s space.

Kids can be fickle creatures, but let’s be honest: adults can be, too. Luckily, color blocking is made for either situation. In this case, Nicole from Deuce Cities Henhouse was the one who wanted a change in her daughter’s bedroom, which was originally painted all teal. So she decided to paint half of the walls white for a fresh new look.

Our customers tell us ALL the time how soft and warm our Throw Blankets are (the secret: Sherpa fleece). Even better, they get softer the more you wash them. They’re a perfect addition to any living room couch. Featuring a crisp, vivid design on the front with a reverse white side.

4. Divide divinely.

Want to try out color blocking without sacrificing a whole wall? This easy DIY from Ashley over at Sugar & Cloth combines pink and peach to turn a plain sliding barn door into a work of art.

Take your seats. Our bar stools, made with durable steel and vegan leather, will breathe new life to any kitchen or dining area. Pull them up to a counter at your home bar or use them as a stylish alternative to dining room chairs.

5. Keep things down to earth.

Color blocking is often associated with bright, bold neon colors. But white walls and a subdued color palette — including mint green and pale yellow — create a down-to-earth space that you can lounge in for hours.

Express your style all over your home with a feature-worthy rug. They’re made from a woven, polyester chenille for a soft and textured look. Plus, choosing from our wide array of designs, you’re sure to find just the rug to match your decor. Rugs are one of the best, attention-grabbing pieces to design a room around. Use the colors within the rug to help choose art prints, furniture fabric, and accent pillows.

6. Match with your decor.

It’s one thing to color block your walls — it’s another to accessorize appropriately. Make your room feel complete by including avant-garde patterns and chic decor that incorporates the same playful shades.

From sideshow to show-stopper, our side tables will be a stunning modern accent to your space. Selecting from our wide array of artist’s designs printed with a satin finish on birch wood, you’ll take any room from zero to a hundred. Available in a square or round table top, and black or gold leg colors.

7. Coordinate with your plants.

There’s nothing like a deep, dramatic swipe of hunter green to create a modern space. Integrate trailing plants, as photographer Paige Jones did in her little boy’s bedroom.

Our notebooks feature unique designs to match whatever style you’re going for. Printed on high-quality 70lb text paper for minimal bleedthrough, they’re a great option for both school and home. Available individually or as a set of three, in lined or unlined options.

8. Go two-toned.

Jen from the blog City Farmhouse chose to pair a dark blue hue with a brighter blue in her playroom. The dramatic two-tone effect adds visual interest without being too busy.

Our decorative acrylic trays offer a unique and transparent way to serve up some style. Use them to give your next dinner party a little something extra or for a pop of color as a kitchen accent. Available in two sizes.

9. Separate a space.

Have a sea of white walls? Color blocking is the perfect answer, as seen in this Danish home that uses dark blue to break up its mudroom.

Park it in style on this incredibly versatile bench, upholstered with vegan leather featuring all the designs you love. The perfect indoor bench, it will give any space an instant upgrade. Dress it with plush blankets or throw pillows to keep it elegant, but super cush.

10. Look to the sea.

This lovely bedroom in a San Francisco bungalow designed by Erin Hiemstra from Apartment 34 took its inspiration from the sea. The soft gray shade on the bottom half of the walls really adds to the overall tranquil vibe of the room, while it also tricks the eye, making it seem like the ceiling is higher than it actually is.

Dress up your duvet with our eye-catching duvet covers. These ultra-soft duvet covers feature sharp, vivid prints on the front, with a crisp white on the back. Choose from either synthetic microfiber or our natural fiber cotton. Available in Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen and King sizes. Duvet insert not included.

11. Use the ceiling.

Why stop at the walls? Continue the fun onto the ceiling like Jonathan Lo from Happy Mundane did in his colorful living room. Painting this corner of the wall and ceiling adds visual interest and helps to divide the space.

Find somewhere soft to land. Our floor cushions are the super comfy and style-forward option for the boho side of us all. They’re UV coated to protect against fading and water resistant so you can avoid scrambling to bring them inside whenever there’s a touch of weather. Grab a few to have on hand whenever seating is hard to come by or for a fun option for kids to use out in the yard.

12. “Block” different rooms.

Color blocking isn’t limited to one room. By selecting different shades for adjoining rooms, you can still enjoy the trend while having cohesive, one-color spaces. And don’t forget to paint the doors!

Our customers tell us ALL the time how soft and warm our Throw Blankets are (the secret: Sherpa fleece). Even better, they get softer the more you wash them. They’re a perfect addition to any living room couch. Featuring a crisp, vivid design on the front with a reverse white side.

13. Tell your color story with furniture.

You don’t need to bust out the paint rollers to get the color block effect. Vibrant furniture — like in this Brazilian living room designed by Adriana Yazbek — offers a similar feeling.

Add throw pillows to whatever room needs an extra dose of comfy. Individually cut and sewn by hand, each pillow features a double-sided print and is finished with a concealed zipper and faux down insert. Keeping an assortment of throw pillow designs on hand is the easiest way to give any space an instant refresh. Available in four sizes.

14. Highlight a small part of the wall.

Creative color blocking can really define a space. By painting a vertical stripe on the wall, Mandi from Vintage Revivals really highlighted this seating area, making the perfect little reading nook.

Make a big statement. Wall murals are the ideal way to turn a blank wall into a showcase for your unique style. Simply line up the panels, peel and stick to reveal your stunning design. Plus, they’re removable and leave no sticky residue behind. Wall murals available in two floor-to-ceiling sizes.
