Low-Commitment Ways to Add Color to Your Apartment
July 23, 2021
Picking up a paintbrush isn’t practical when you’re living in a rental, but that doesn’t mean your space should lack personality. Here are a few ways you can invite bright hues into your apartment without committing to a new paint color.
- Try colorful art. Loving certain autumn shades right now? See if you can find a bold, bright piece of art to serve as a statement piece in your living room. Scour your favorite thrift stores or look online for something that suits your tastes.
- Bring on the greenery. Adding more color is really as as simple as adding houseplants! You should never underestimate the power of some fresh foliage, especially at a time of year when getting out in nature starts to become a little less comfortable. Start with hardy succulents if you don’t have much of a green thumb.
- Play up small accents. You don’t need to drench a room in color in order to make a statement. Instead, try swapping out your throw pillows or hanging a new set of curtains in a rich autumnal burgundy or an emerald green.
- Experiment with peel-and-stick wallpaper. If you’re really committed to re-inventing your walls, try this renter-friendly option. Temporary wallpaper comes in a variety of shades and patterns, and it’ll peel right off whenever you need it to!
