We love the soothing clarity of an all-white interior as much as the next person, but there's something undeniably exciting about a room that goes a little wild with its design. To help us all transition from the snowy palettes of winter to something fresh for spring, we took the time to revisit some of our favorite color-splashed homes. These living rooms prove color can appeal to a whole variety of personal styles, and should be just the inspiration for anyone looking to up the fun factor just a bit.
