I'm not generally a fan of anything bold, bright, or loud. My style sense is (clearly) very neutral and quiet, and if I ever do use colour it's only pastels. No, this doesn't mean that I hate colour. I just personally prefer to surround myself by gentle & calming colours.
A trend that I do love right now is white rooms with bright pops. White on top of white with more white and then some more white is anything but exciting. There's a very easy way to add some fun colours into your space and bring the room to life. Conquer blank walls with vibrant art, get a great pair of lamps for your side tables, pick a funky fabric you love and turn it into drapery or a window covering, or paint one small piece of furniture a colour that matches the mood of the room. Of course the golden rule is to always tie everything together with a few added accessories: throw blankets, pillows, flower vases, or books with bright covers.
