Paint-Free Ways to Add Color in Denver ApartmentDo you want to personalize your Springs Denver luxury apartment home with some pops of color? There are a number of creative ways to add color and design to your home that are easier and more versatile than painting.

Here are some of our favorite suggestions for incorporating color in your apartment. Use them as-is or come up with your own imaginative variations.

1. Hang Tapestries

Fabric isn't just for floors and furniture. A tapestry in a bright color or exotic pattern can turn any wall into a vibrant focal point. Another option is to cover a large piece of foam board with an eye-catching piece of fabric. Maybe you could give a dramatic shower curtain a new home in your living room or bedroom.

2. Peel-and-Stick Magic

Transform your apartment into a tropical beach, lush forest or log cabin with peel-and-stick murals. These amazing pieces can be added, moved or changed in a matter of minutes. If a wall is too much of a commitment, try peel-and-stick tile in the kitchen or bathroom.

3. Pile It On

Throw pillows are ideal for adding accents of color that don't overpower a room. They're small and inexpensive, so you can change them up based on the seasons or just on your mood.

4. Start at the Bottom

Area rugs come in an amazing variety of colors, patterns and textures to create any effect you want. In addition to adding color, area rugs can define a specific section of a room for more balance and visual impact. And who says you have to stop at one? Layering rugs is a popular trend that lets you mix and match styles.

5. Divide and Conquer

If you want another multitasking option, consider screens and room dividers. Not only do they bring a dramatic element to your decor, they can be easily put aside temporarily if you need room for entertaining.

6. Turn to Mother Nature

Nothing adds life to a room more quickly than a colorful flower arrangement. Houseplants also provide a natural touch while purifying indoor air. Don't have a green thumb? It's not hard to find high-quality artificial flowers and plants that will serve the purpose equally well.

7. Seating Arrangements

People usually play it safe with furniture in neutral colors, but a strategically chosen piece in a bright color can instantly freshen a room's decor. One fun option is colorful dining chairs. Save money and create a charmingly eclectic look by picking up different styles at thrift shops or resale stores.
