Read on for some inspiring tips that’ll get you started!


The kitchen eating area is a great place to start adding pops of color to your apartment home. Shop thrift stores for rattan or wicker outdoor furniture (barstools if you have an island or table and chairs if you have a separate eating area) and spray paint a bright turquoise, orange, citrus green or whatever color cheers you up. If you already have furniture for this area, buy colorful seat cushions for the chairs. Now add a colorful tablecloth and a framed photo or print for your wall and you’ve created a lively eating area that will set the tone for any meal.

Living Room

Brightly colored pillows and throws are inexpensive items that definitely boost the color quotient in your living room. Mix and match colors and patterns, prints or floral designs – no need to stick with solid colors. The variety of pillows available these days is practically unlimited, so let your inner designer loose and have fun. Because they’re not expensive, you can even change out your pillows with every season!

When adding artwork to this space, consider not only colorful prints, but fun frames, too. Most artwork is framed in basic colors or wood finishes, but you can paint it to match your décor.

Accent pieces are another budget-friendly way to add some color to a room. Shop for fun-but-useful items like vases, small “trinket” boxes, candles, pottery – even coffee table books – to place around the room.


The best way to liven up your bedroom is with a bedspread or duvet that reflects your personality. Add complementary accent pillows and a throw to really make your bed the visual focus of the room, then add some art and accent pieces to complete the look. Other ways to add some interest to this room are to put colorful shades on your lamps or an accent rug under the bed.

Because this is the New Orleans area, one of the best ways to add color to any room in your apartment home is with fresh flowers. You can pick them up almost anywhere, they come in a virtual rainbow of colors, and it’s simple to switch them out to match your mood!
