Bright colors are even more dynamic when they are mixed and matched together in different patterns. Pick one bright shade and one neutral (colors like gray and taupe), so that the brighter color will really pop.
When decorating your new home, keep in mind that color trends can change rapidly. But it is possible to keep your home decor affordable, even if you enjoy shifting your color palette frequently. Invest in quality neutrals for your furniture and then accent your home in the latest shade with accessories like throw pillows and ceramic vases.

If this cheerful shower curtain doesn't turn you into a morning person, then we don't know what will. Printed shower curtains are such a good idea, particularly if they feature several different colors.

Transform a Room
Area rugs are one of those registry items that sound boring now, but you will be so grateful for later. They can completely tie a room together, give it added warmth, and show off your love of color.
Dine in Style
It's not rare for newlyweds to be on a budget. But you will feel like a million bucks when you eat your 4 for $1 boxed mac-n-cheese off of these swanky plates. Again, mixing and matching patterns can be a way to add visual interest to each place setting.
Cup o' Tea
Electric tea kettles are a fabulous invention, and sure, a regular white one would work just fine. But have you seen this gorgeous bubblegum pink?
Neutrals & Brights
Just like with your living room furniture, look for ways to buy the trends you love while still sticking to your budget. On your wedding registry, look for a neutral duvet cover, quilt, or comforter, and also register for your current favorite shade for your sheets and pillows. You can also check out reversible quilts like the ones shown here.
