If you need ideas for incorporating color into your home decor, take a look at Rate My Space. We've chosen some of our favorite indoor and outdoor rooms that use color with confidence.

Just Beachy Living Room

Mix soft blue and green with white to create an inviting, clean palette. Printed pillows using all three colors pull the colors together. Design by justbeachy.

Nautical Bed with Oar

RMS user and HGTV contributor Layla Palmer has a wonderful way with color. In this beach-inspired bedroom, she exposed the white wooden planks behind the bed for a rustic look, an ideal backdrop for an oar-turned-art piece.

Create Colorful Outdoor Space via Simple Designs

Nature offers the ultimate color palette. When designing outdoor spaces, keep colors simple and let the beauty of nature take center stage. In this space, mariaferlo mixed white drapes and cushions and added soft color with pillows.

Eclectic Home Office

Have fun in your home office by mixing bold colors with eclectic accessories. RMS user DesignbyInspiration chose a palette of deep green and purple for her office space. Touches of black and white add depth and light to the room.

Colorful Living Room Enlivened by Natural Light

Keep your furniture, floors and walls neutral if you want to highlight colorful artwork. RMS user shortcar hung bold paintings high on the wall, making them instant focal points.

Flowers Arranged for Color

There's something rather warm and cozy about a red reading chair. A brown throw, a black-and-white side table and vase of Gerber daisies complete the look. Design by nydesignguy.

Colorful Playroom

Children's spaces should be fun. This playroom by RMS user tgrgory incorporates a rainbow of colors underfoot and walls of sky blue. White furniture and bookcases for storage complete this smart look.

Blue Pink and Yellow Nursery

We loved this idea by RMS user jt1515. Add color to a nursery with bright fabrics displayed in quilting hoops.

Red and Black Outdoor Room

Set apart indoor-outdoor spaces with bold colors that contrast with the exterior. RMS user Val Moore opted for red and black and gave this space an inviting, Asian feel.

Purple is a perfect complement to gray. Add sleek white furniture, molding and an inspiring wall treatment and you've got one stylish office. Design by smoodgie.

HGTV contributor Janell Beals (RMS user isabellaandmaxrooms) designed this bedroom for her daughter. Bathed in blue with pops of \"happy colors\" and touches of luxury, this space should be age-appropriate for years to come.

Purple Wall at End of Hall Creates Visual Interest

This foyer by Timdreese pulls you in with colorful artwork that pops against white walls and coordinates with a stunning purple accent wall in the living room. A lovely artistic statement.

Colorful Cottage Kitchen

RMS user susanbf transformed this kitchen with icy blue and white paint and well-chosen accent colors. We love the celery-green chairs and budget black drawer pulls.

If you have a storage or garden shed, make it a focal point in your yard. RMS user monkeyface went bold and it works like a charm.

Decorative pendants and orange place settings add tasteful pops of color in this kitchen. A large window is uncovered allowing the color of nature to shine through. Design by oregonhouse.

Red, white and blue is a delightful color combination for a little boy's room. RMS user thriftydecorchick toned down deep-blue walls with white woodwork and built-ins.

Colorful Basement Playroom

Lighten up a basement space with light walls and pops of bright color. This playroom by RMS user trendytoes is both trendy and timeless.

Bold Bedroom for a Young Girl

This wall treatment by jak1975 is clearly a labor of love. Painting stripes in several shades of pink and green and mixing them with black and white furniture and bedding is a beautiful combination that is all girl. We especially love the green leaves that extend color out into the room in an unexpected way.

Feel the sunshine in your home even when the weather is dreary. Just start with a neutral palette and bring in sunny warm colors as accents. Design by RMS user DianaMync.

White Kitchen with Red Stove

Colorful appliances are pieces of art. Surrounded by a neutral palette, the red vintage stove in this kitchen is the center of attention. The fabulous island is a close second. Design by tgrgory.

Orange Dining Room

Orange can be a wonderful choice in a dining room. RMS user rfarrelldesign chose a warm shade and paired it with rich wood and crisp white. The pop of blue from the artwork compliments the orange perfectly.

This bathroom by vintagekitchen is one of the most popular on Rate My Space, and it's easy to see why. Sea-green tile combined with crisp white creates a soft look that is both casual and spa-like.

We love the colorful storage solutions in RMS user Centsationalgirl's playroom. If you have an area that is beautifully organized, show it off with bright colors.

It's hard to believe this family room by RMS user jlgraddy is located in a basement. A mix of patterned and solid carpet tiles adds warmth underfoot and creates a cozy color palette.

Colorful Beach Bath Theme

We love this bathroom mural by RMS user memehill. If you like this look but aren't sure you can pull it off in your own home, practice on a large piece of art paper. You never know; you may unlock the artist within.
