The Anti-Minimalist Guide to Using Rich Colors in Your Home

It’s not that I have anything against super-minimalist, Scandinavian-style interiors—I mean, no one can argue with their chicness—but sometimes, especially around this time of year, you just want a rich-looking space full of saturated hues. It’s not about neons or primary colors; it’s about slate grays, burgundy reds, and indigo blues; jewel tones and dark, moody neutrals.

If you’re looking for inspiration to help turn your light, airy living room or bedroom into a cozy hideaway for a long winter of snuggling up inside, these 10 stunning spaces and corresponding shopping ideas will help. You don’t have to commit to painting an entire room a color you might not be into next spring; instead, try a throw pillow, blanket, or maybe consider painting a nightstand or dresser. Use the 20 photos below as your guide.
