Transform a space from bland to beautiful.
Apply colour directly to the walls with paint or wallpaper. Or leave the backdrop neutral and play up juicy-toned accessories like pillows and drapes, like designer Sabrina Linn did here in her cheery bedroom. Either way, a carefully chosen palette can change the look of a room like nothing else.
First decide what your room needs. More light? More warmth? If you choose to paint, plan to do the whole area instead of colour-blocking just one wall. For less of a commitment, consider painting or wallpapering large canvasses or wood panels and hanging or leaning them against the wall. Bring in accent colours in finishing touches such as pillows, throws, rugs, curtains and trays.
