Maybe you’re renting and unable to paint the walls. Perhaps your windows don’t let all the light in that you’d like. Whatever the reason, your small space living arrangement feels dark and moody, and that’s just not you. There are plenty of ways you can introduce color into a space to liven and lighten it up.
Pillows that Pop
One of the easiest and most affordable ways to add color to your space is by adding mid century modern pillows with bold, bright patterns. Add life to your gloomy, gray sofa with pale blues or pinks. Don’t be afraid to get creative; after all, mixing and matching complementary pillows can add depth and layers to your space. Give your space the color and texture it needs easily with pillows that pop.
A Bold Statement
Think of the largest piece of furniture in your room. The bed, a dining table, and especially your sofa are the dominant multifunctional pieces in most spaces. Making a bold statement with your largest furniture piece can instantly transform a room and brighten your small space living situation. If your room seems monochromatic, forget about adding just a ray of sunshine and plunk down the whole darn sun in the middle of your room. A bright, beaming sofa can change your entire space with one bold statement.
The Right Rug
If you’re looking for a way to make the entire room look brighter without replacing each piece, consider a brightly colored rug with a beautiful pattern to boot. Adding a colorful rug that covers a large portion of your room can bathe your room in light from below. Rugs also anchor furniture and define your living space.
Brass Is the new Black
When you’re looking to add color to a room, you should look beyond fabrics and textiles. Brass has made a big comeback and adds color and sophistication to your room. Spread brass accented furniture throughout your living space. A brass-footed coffee table with complementary brass lamps will brighten your home design plan in the most luxurious way.
