Get inspired by colors and give your home a vibrant new look

Red, yellow, blue, and green – bright colors are making a comeback in our homes. If you feel a bit color-shy, start off by adding in accent colors with smaller details and accessories. Forget the strict interior rules and play freely with bold tones!

Vitra Hang it all coat rack, multicolor

Cheerful design

Designed by Charles and Ray Eames, the Hang it all coat rack charms with its fun design in colors of the rainbow. Created in 1953, the rack delights both children and adults and finds its place in the hallway, children's room, or dressing room. The fourteen wooden balls can accommodate several clothes and accessories, and the racks can be combined together to form larger units.

Hint of orange

Bright details are emphasized in the otherwise simplistic interior. String Furniture's Museum Side Table is a real eye-catcher and serves as a side table for a flower vase, coffee cup, or laptop.
