You know what our apartment doesn't have enough of? BAM! Pops of bright colour.

For the most part, our place is fairly neutral. The living room/dining room is mostly soft greens, browns and other Earth tones. Our bedroom is chocolate brown, grey-blue and ivory. Even the bathroom is mostly beige with bits of green and white. All quite monotone, though relaxed and comfortable. Our kitchen is the only room in the apartment that has any real colour with red accents inspired by our crazy radio toaster — a gift from my step-dad.

But I'm feeling inspired to liven up the rest of the apartment. I love the drama a pop of colour can add — with flowers:

With furniture:

With accent walls:

How do you brighten up a space, especially if you're in an apartment like ours that has little natural light?

  1. Ooh, I love that orange and white dining room! Bold paint colours are my fave.
