Use Vibrant Color on One Wall
According to Whirl Magazine, there's one way you can make a really big splash in your home without taking out a loan: paint one wall in a room a bright, vivid color. The magazine suggests using colors like chartreuse, sweet potato and fruit punch to make a statement.
If you don't like the color, you can always repaint. Which is true -- and what designers always tell us -- but maybe not as easy to do as they suggest. Instead, why not buy a large accessory piece in one of these funky colors and place that in the room as a simple test. If you hate the color after awhile, be very glad you hadn't gotten the paint brushes out. If you love the color and want to see more, you will know what to plan for your next weekend at home.
Color is wonderful but so many of us are afraid of it, often with good reason. It's quite a weapon in the world of home decorating. But taking baby steps may help make the transition much smoother.
