Adding bold color to a closet-sized apartment can seem like a nightmarish idea. But the truth is that using a color palette of white, white, white does nothing more than make everything seem too constricted, depressing, and, well, boring. If you keep these simple tips in mind, youll find that a bright splash of color was just what the doctor ordered.
Go Big or Go Home
Choose bold colors, prints, and patterns that will actually expand each room. Just make sure to keep a little bit of space between contrasting choices; this will help add a touch of clarity. Also, dont be afraid to have a focal wall or slip color in unexpected places (i.e. on a radiator).
Make a space cohesive by repeating patterns or colors in different areas of the same room or even different rooms of the apartment. This will bring the design together so that decorating choices seem well thought-out and intentional.
Leave No Stone Unturned
Dont stray from livening up unconventional spaces, like your kitchen or bathroom. While the bathroom may be the smallest room in an already-small apartment, painting it a rich chocolate or mocha could succeed in bringing interest and comfort to the space.
Experiment and Have Fun
The best interior designs arent planned with a ruler and textbook. Theyre dreamt up from the whimsy and creative flair of those that arent afraid to experiment. Whats the worst that could happen? You re-paint a wall and get to have even more fun playing designer of your own space. Do the opposite of what seems right and you may just come up with a fantastically unique little pad.
