Your home should be a reflection of your personality, and one of the best ways to show this is through the use of color. Fortunately, you don't need to go through the hassle of painting your apartment home to achieve a colorful palette. Here are five creative ways to add a pop of color to your apartment's interior without paint:
1. Create a Focal Point with a Bold Painting
Hang a painting in your apartment that features vibrant color can immediately change the vibe of any space and help to create a focal point for the room. In addition, it gives you an opportunity to show off your unique personality through your decor, and if you later change your mind, it’s an easy item to replace.
2. Make Your Own Gallery Wall
One of the best ways to make your apartment truly feel like home is to create a gallery wall that features photos of your family and friends. This also provides a great opportunity to add pops of color through your unique choices in frames or the images themselves.
3. Embrace Throw Pillows
Throw pillows are one of the least expensive ways to bring color into your apartment's interior design scheme. They can really set the tone for a room as well as help pull together colors used throughout the apartment to make the space flow. Since pillows are typically inexpensive, they can easily be switched out if you become tired of the color scheme.
4. Add Some Greenery Through Plants
Indoor house plants are certainly an interior design trend on the rise, as they offer some much welcomed greenery to your space and are known to improve indoor air quality. Some of the top trending indoor house plants for 2016 include leafy ferns and tall cacti (very popular in Austin since the cactus is the state plant).
5. Incorporate Accent Furniture
Accent furniture with bold colors and/or patterns can really grab a visitor's attention, especially when it's paired with a complementary throw pillow. Using furniture for a pop of color makes it the focal point of the room and certainly adds flair to your apartment home.
