Hi NoirExpressions readers! My name is Jacquin and I am the owner and editor of the Interiors by Jacquin interior design company and blog. I am glad to be a new guest contributor for Noir Expressions. Thanks for tuning in! When it comes to spending time at home, you want your home to feel comfortable, bright and upbeat. One of the best ways to brighten your space is by adding color. Today I'm sharing with you Part 1 of 3 Great Ways to Add Color to Your Home. Here are three easy ways to beautify your home with color!

1 Add an Accent Wall

Creating an accent wall is a fun way to add color to your space.  Try pulling out one of the brighter colors in your décor and use that color for your accent wall.  Even if it’s an especially bright color, using it on only one wall will generally be the perfect touch.  If you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, you can create a more graphic wall accent with wallpaper, as seen above.  Either way, you will have made a great addition to your home. 
 
2 Feature a Colorful Rug

Selecting a feature rug can make all the difference in the look of a room.  For those of you looking for a great budget rug, checkout Overstock.com.  The NuLoom Moroccan Trellis Wool Rug above is only $209.99 for the large 7'6 x 9'6 size at Overstock.  Anthropolgie offers some really special rug designs for those of you looking for a more unique rug.  If you don't have a rug down in your living room now, it may just be time to shop for one.  
 
 
3 Choose at Least One Richly Colored Furniture Item or Accent Per Room
