If the interior is made in neutral colors and bored with monotony, add color to it. There are several ways to freshen up a calm environment at no extra cost.
Give one piece of cabinet furniture a new life, paint it in an unusual color, or add a pattern in a contrasting shade to the facades. If you don’t want to paint, don’t give up an armchair, pouffe or sofa, choose a rich or bright shade for them. The room will liven up and become noticeably more interesting. An accent piece of furniture will not break a neutral setting, but will make it more dynamic.
You can add color with small decorative items or additions to the existing decoration in the room.
Paint or reframe photographs, add colored fringe to a throw, curtain or lampshade, replace neutral handles on a chest of drawers with bright colored ones, arrange books on a shelving unit by color, replace pots with houseplants, arrange decorative colored candles of different diameters and heights.
Fabric is the fastest way to bring color into the interior. Add or replace decorative pillows, a throw, throw, curtains, or throw a bright carpet along a long corridor. Swap bedding for bright, solid colors or colorful ones. It will not disturb the harmony of a neutral interior, hiding under a bedspread, but it will delight you with colors in the evening and morning.
If you’re using a shower curtain, replace it with a brightly patterned version or a solid color in a rich tone. Or change towels. This will add dynamics to a calm bathroom without disturbing the neutral setting.
Use bright dishes for daily use, please yourself and cheer up. Or take out the sets that you save for guests and use for yourself. Ceramic tableware with a bright print or pattern will decorate the dining table and charge you with positive energy. Food will seem tastier, and eating more pleasant, which means it will have a good effect on health.
