It's time to explore the rainbow and embrace the many bright shades it has to offer.
We dare you to take the ultimate small space decorating challenge. Bring on the color.
Who doesn't dream of their kitchen having a large center island, farmhouse style dining table, and the double-stacked stove? Stop wallowing in your small space sadness. Make colorful strides that will transform a traditional kitchen. A bold shade of red brightens the walls and a blue tiled backsplash feels fresh and inviting.
If you’re short on square inches, be thoughtful with your design choices. Vibrant red and neutral tones of green feel inventive in a neutral living room. Choose pieces that are interesting on their own, like a stand alone shelving unit, patterned chair or modern coffee table.
When decorating an open room plan, choose a color that makes sense with the many ways this area will function. Modern with a hint of cozy, this rich shade of magenta will make dining, working and entertaining all feel natural.
Wallpaper can change your life. Sound dramatic? Not as dramatic as hanging a paper in a shocking magenta medallion print.
It's not about having a ton of space, it's about making the right decorating decisions. Choose a color — but explore its many sides. Watch how well the different shades of blue (turquoise, cobalt, navy) play together and add instant excitement to a living room.
