25 BOLD Ways To Do Color In Your Apartment

Photo: Via @em_henderson.
Who's afraid of big, bad color? We are. But, what's even more frightening? A bad case of SAD. Yes, cabin fever is a real thing (especially after a snow day like yesterday on the East Coast), and we're already ready to combat it — with 25 of our favorite rainbow interior Instas. 

Some are subtle, others are in-your-face bright, but they all prove one thing: Sophisticated and fun can live together like two little lovebirds on an apartment sofa. Whether you're dreaming of some zing for your kitchen or pop for your bedspread, look away from the dreary, white-covered windows and into some spaces that will make you smile and be brave.
