In thinking about your overall lifestyle, did you know that adding color to your apartment home can go a long way in making your space more welcoming for your guests and enjoyable for yourself? Yet, color can be intimidating, as it can be easy to overdo it and create a decorative eyesore. With that being said, here are a few tips to follow.
Since you can’t paint the walls in your apartment home, consider other ways to add color to your wall. Hang bright tapestries, rugs, or blankets to your wall to add color and texture. Choose large paintings or prints to brighten up a dull wall. Even in a small space, a larger-sized work of art can add pizzazz without making the room feel smaller.
Add colorful accessories. Pillows, throw rugs, glassware, and window treatments are great ways to inject more color into a room, while also boosting the aesthetic appeal of your space. Not to mention, they can be done dramatically or in small doses, depending on the look you’re going for.
Try mixing different colors and fabric patterns. It is traditional to have light colors and small prints in a small room. If you find that boring, expand your decorating creativity to include bolder, deeper colors and exciting patterns.
If you are unsure about adding too much color to your room, start slowly and gradually add things you really like. Experimentation is the key, as well as keeping an open mind. Find ways to incorporate budget-friendly items into your home, and you won’t have to worry about shelling out an arm and a leg for a look that might not fit your personality.
