There are a lot of aesthetics that use color to bring out the desired vibe in a space. But for renters and those who find it difficult to commit to decor, paint isn’t really the best of options to consider when wanting to add color to a space. Whether you want to add a small splash, a monochromatic scheme to include color or you want full blown color-palooza, these tips will get you there without the dedication paint necessitates. From experience, here are the ways I like to bring color into my home:
The “No Paint” Method To Colorful Interiors
Try It: Drape a tapestry over a sofa, bring in curtains in a bright color, cover a chair with a pretty blanket, lay a runner or table cloth on a piece of furniture, and bring together seating areas with area rugs.
Tablecloths & Runners
Try It: Seek out a plant with unique colors or blooms, put a plant in a colorful planter, stick a planter on a painted plant stand (or stool-like object), or stick the planter in a macrame plant hanger made with colored cord.
Try It: Pick up frames in funky fresh hues, switch out the mat for a patterned or colored one, choose art made with colors you want in the space, hang colorful woven baskets or painted mirrors.
Try It: Incorporate color into a space by pulling together vignettes with lanterns, candles, books, sculptures and/or vases that are colored.
