So you have the job, you’ve bought/rented the apartment, now all you have to do is decorate it-but how? Latest trends have been favoring more modern looks: sharper edges, trendy designs, and bright pops of colored images again white walls. I love keeping rooms light, so the trend of painting walls a light color is definitely a personal favorite of mine. White walls and light colored rugs or wooden floors allow natural light to reflect around the room, making the room brighter and airier, helping to maintain an uplifting environment at all times!
With while walls and light flooring in place, it’s time to add color! While the walls and flooring do add a bit of contrast, the colors are quite similar, making it necessary to add one or two accent hues in the room. These accent colors should be used throughout the space in small amounts so they are littered around the room, but do not seem overpowering. For example, the room below utilizes a neutral black and white scheme along with accent colors of coral/red and green to add awesome pops of color:
Now that you’ve chosen your accent colors, its time to pick out some furniture! Since you have a neutral color scheme in addition to your accent colors, you have the potential to pick furniture in a hue that complementary to the colors in your room! The apartment below shows this perfectly. This room, too, has a color scheme of black and white along with coral/red and green, but instead of choosing to maintain natural colored furniture (white, beige, brown, and black), the owner decided to add yet another color to add into the room. The beautiful pattern and the color on the arm chair in the forefront of the image perfectly add a much needed focal point in to the spade, whereas denim colored couch in the background perfectly complements the brightness of the coral and green.
