That is why we think the easiest way to get started is by adding a bright hue or two to the smallest spot in your abode. Illustrating our point are the pint-size bathrooms in this New York City apartment remodeled by Studio DB. The cheerful spaces combine graphic tile with fixtures and accessories in electrifying shades of yellow, pink and red.

To be honest, we love bright hues and exotic patterns. So, of course, we fell head over heels when we spotted this living room by Alida and Miller. Here colorful textiles from around the globe warm up the bohemian inspired space with downright funky style. A horse painting picked up at a local thrift shop is a nod to 1970s counterculture. Quirky accessories like the decorative swans on the floor and the phrenology head on the end table are right at home in this unique space.
