Colorful interiors have been on the rise for a while now, but after the craziness of the last year, it’s no surprise that the popularity of vibrant spaces has skyrocketed. Looking to liven up and bring joy to their homes when they couldn’t go many other places, many homeowners turned to paint during the pandemic, bringing a breath of fresh air to once-neutral rooms, and we don’t see any stop to the color craze any time soon. If anything, designers and homeowners are feeding into the frenzy, painting entire rooms—walls and ceilings—in astonishingly beautiful hues. Want to join in? Below, we’ve listed a few of our favorite vibrantly hued interiors to inspire you to bring a bit of color to your own home this year!
