Updated 02/01/18

Monochrome, Scandinavian-inspired interiors have been popular for years, but if you're tired of white-washed floors and shag rugs, we've got good news: Color is making a comeback. Pinterest reports a recent rise in color-related searches, and 1stdibs designers expect to see "more complexity in both color and details come into vogue versus the minimalist style."

If you're cautious of decorating with color, add this vibrant Santa Barbara home to your Pinterest board for some inspiration. Designed by Taylor Anne Interiors and photographed by Alyssa Rosenheck, the gorgeous home is a lesson in decorating with color. Bursts of sage, teal, and fuchsia punctuate the light-drenched home. Take a look inside.

"The space has a warmth to it that feels lived-in and not so shiny new," says Taylor of Taylor Anne Interiors. "We used vintage knobs and pulls from Liz's Antique Hardware in L.A. and a perfect Farrow & Ball green/blue on the cabinets."

Taylor describes this room as "black, white, and youthful." Want to re-create the look? "Phillip Jeffries wallpaper lines the walls while an Ann Sacks subway tile and Waterworks black/white/beige hex pack a punch on the floor," she says.

"My personal directive was to open up the living and kitchen areas so the space felt brighter and more inviting," the interior designer explains. "I added beams in the living room to add height and a little architectural interest."
