Warming up to colour

I'm full of ideas about how I'll decorate my next space. I feel like I'll keep the neutral backdrop that I'm so committed to. But I'm definitely more drawn to colour these days than I used to be. Still, I'm a little scared of colour seeming childlike or too twee. I'm not sure why it scares me so, but I'd like to get over it...

I think this home offers the perfect role-model for how to proceed and add an injection of happy colour without compromising a neutral, airy feeling. As you can see, we're talking baby steps for me and colour. I'm looking for the decorating equivalent of a colourful scarf on a neutral ensemble. Images from Living Etc.
