Your Confidence with Color
Tracee Finley, Happy Place Editor
Rich and warm Color lands at the top of Finley's list for elements that lend personality to a space, but that doesn't mean your room has to go from dorm-room to luxury overnight. "Start small, like vases, pillows, and artwork," Finley says. Then, as you find colors that resonate with you, gradually go bigger. Try painting a wall, adding large area rugs, and buying colorful furniture… yes other than brown. As you live with vibrant pieces you love, you'll gain more confidence in your ability to decorate with color.
For the Renters:
This living room shows exactly how to decorate with color and pattern in a reversible way. We suggest painting the walls with crisp white paint, then work color into the furniture and art. You'll be able to take all the personality with you when you move, and you won't have to repaint.
