Even those who usually take a neutral approach when it comes to decor may occasionally be in the mood to add some warmth or drama to shake up their space. So we say go bold with a vermillion color. It may seem a bit out of your comfort zone, but even in small doses, the scarlet shade can create a big impact.

6. A Single Piece
If you want to shake things up, but keep your space white and minimal at the same time, consider adding a cabinet or credenza in a rich red shade. Pick a classic statement piece, and we're sure it will stick around for a long time.

7. Why Yes, Wallpaper
Like we said and will always say, an accent wall with a little pop of color will help you perfectly stir the decorating pot. But you can also choose a patterned vermillion wallpaper for something really dramatic in your bedroom. This space even has a lampshade in a matching pattern.
