We all talk about it, others go on Pinterest and pin it, however most people hardly ever do anything about it. I am talking about the lack of color in your rooms. Now if you love the black, whites, and 100% neutral spaces, then obviously this post is not for you.
I am talking to those of you who have had the same beige living room set for the past five years, cringe at the idea of painting, and do not know how to add a punch of color. Here are 5, no-fail and inexpensive ways to revive the color in your home without picking up a paintbrush.
Numeral Uno: Bring in a Massive Piece of Art.
Everyone should be doing this anyway, because it adds so much, and it makes for full-out drama. However, it also revs up the color in your space too.
Two: Wallpapering Just One Wall
I know what you’re thinking, wallpaper is an even bigger expense and headache than painting is. To me it’s not; especially if you’re only papering one wall. You can get some great deals on wallpaper on sites like Spoonflower Etsy, and Graham and brown.
#3. Add Some Funk Color With One Dramatic Furniture Piece.
You can bring in a coffee table, side chair, or a sofa. Depending on where you go to shop, you could also save a bunch of cash. Try places like Craigslist, home goods, and flea markets to find that perfect colorful, yet affordable piece of furniture.
Four: Add Color Under Foot With a Bold Area Rug.
People often forget that you can add and punch of color with your area rug choices. And, if you don’t like it just swap it out. While I’m talking about area rugs you can also have fun with color on your ceilings. But that’s a whole other post in itself.
Finally: Add a Dose of Color In Your Drapes:
Personally, I find that using colorful drapes brings in the most drama out of all of these ideas. To keep it affordable visit etsy.com, IKEA, and Pottery Barn Kids for great drapery choices on the cheap.
