Six ways to add color to your living space
In this fast pace of life, not everyone has the time or the money for a full makeover of their living space. However, here are some of the creative ways to freshen up your space to breathe new life into a living room purely with the use of color.
Add a punch of color by accenting one wall of your living room with a coat of paint. Look for a niche to add extra color, or choose a larger wall that will get noticed. Pick a bold, contrasting color from a fabric in your living room. Or, go for a subtle accent by painting the wall in the same color family, but a tone darker than the rest of your walls.
Add bursts of color with strategically placed and well-chosen toss pillows. Choose solids for floral furnishings, patterned pillows for solid pieces, or mix and match patterns for a dazzling array of color. Have fun with experimenting with patterns, and add in a solid to soften the look if you prefer.
Perhaps the easiest and most versatile means of adding a touch of color to your space, is simply the addition of bright, colorful flowers. Whether an ornate arrangement or a simple grouping, a vase or large bowl of flowers can instantly transform your space. And what’s more, you can change your flower colors on a regular basis and according to the season.
A new lamp, revamping a lamp, or just updating a shade adds color and personality into a living room. For noticeable pops of color, add a pair of lamps flanking a piece of art or furniture.
