5 Ways to Embrace Bold Color in Your Small Apartment

Posted

Regardless if you are living in a small apartment because it comfortably fits in your budget or if you have downsized to reduce your carbon footprint, decorating can pose some challenges. It can be tempting to play it safe with neutrals or stick with a simple color palette because these options just seem more appropriate for a small space. Who cares about being appropriate? This is your home! Bold colors are in, and you certainly do not need a sprawling house to enjoy them. Below are a few ways to incorporate bold, beautiful colors in your cozy apartment.

.

Fabric Wall - Just because you can't paint the walls of your rental does not mean you can't cover them in fabric. You could use thumbtacks to cover a wall from floor-to-ceiling, or hang curtain rods and drape long sheers or pieces of fabric from them. If you have all solids in the room this will be the perfect opportunity to incorporate a pattern. Alternately, if you have a lot of patterns maybe you want to pick one color to make as the primary one on the wall.

.

Bubble Fountain- Remember how fun lava lamps were? Well, think of those on an entirely new and more sophisticated level. Air is pushed through a filter to create bubbles in the closed water. These bubbles are highlighted by a colorful light. Bubble fountains are available in a variety of styles and are really ideal for that empty corner you are tired of looking at.

.

Furniture - Does your heart beat a little faster when you see a bright yellow sofa or hot pink chair in a movie or magazine? What are you afraid of? If you are drawn to these bold pieces then this is what you should have in your living space. Look around your room right now, and then imagine one bold piece of furniture. The space will have an instant facelift.

.

Ottoman - Not ready to part with the furniture you have? Maybe you just bought it, so you are certainly not ready for replacements. Well, you could buy furniture covers, or you could just get a bright ottoman. If it opens then you will have storage space, which is always a bonus.

.

Décor Pieces - Rugs, vases, planters, curtains, decorative pillows, and blankets are just a few other things you can easily find in bold colors. You could leave your room as is, add a bubble fountain and a bright rug, and people will think you redecorated.
