We’ve delved into unbelievably colorful living rooms, the most colorful cakes around, and a party centered around being the most colorful bash ever, but it’s time to get a little more granular with our color love. Today, we’ll show you 10 inspiring interiors that turn to painted shelves for that bonus pop of color.

1. Red Holiday Shelves: First up, our very own shelves from the Lowe’s Holiday Ready Home event. We added a pop of red to bring out the snowy white mugs and bowls. (via Brit + Co.)

2. Patterned Shelves: These DIY shelves have beautiful mint, white, and gold paint on them creating lovely textures and patterns. (via Design Love Fest)

3. Poppy Wall Shelves: Now you see them, now you don’t! These shelves were painted along with the wall to create a totally seamless look. (via Mucho Reciclaje)

4. Turquoise Shelves: I must admit, this is my personal favorite. Wooden shelves are made so much more interesting with a turquoise interior. (via Belle Maison)

5. Quatrefoil Pattern: If you’re feeling like getting pattern-y with it, go for a classic quatrefoil. (via Pretty Sweet Life)

6. Color Block Bookcase: Color blocking for the win! This makes a boring old built-in way more awesome. (via This Old House)

7. Cream-Colored Hutch with Tangerine Interior: This decidedly ’70s look turns a cream-colored hutch totally mod by painting the inside a vibrant tangerine. (via My Home Lookbook)

8. Upbeat in Aqua: Another hack on a vintage piece, you can turn a tired looking flea market find much more stylish by throwing a coat of paint on the back. (via This Old House)

9. Rainbow Shelves: Yes. These. Now! (via Half Asleep Studio)

10. Blue-Backed Library: Finally, a way to bring a modern touch to a classic library-style den. We love the different shades of blue and green in this interior. (via Pinterest)
