We will start with the simplest and most commonly chosen wall colors – light walls. Light walls are common for a reason; they give your space a fresh and clean feel. For small spaces, a light wall color is perfect because it will make the space feel bigger and more open. Additionally, this is the most versatile wall category. Light and bright walls look great in almost any style of home! For a Scandinavian Modern look choose clean white, for an airy crisp room choose a light blue, and for a country cottage choose cream or a hint of yellow. This wall choice truly has a lot of potential.

The room below is traditional, but a clever combination of colorful accents and artistic flourishes make the space truly interesting. A pink striped rug, large botanical artwork and elephant side tables are three of the eye-catching selections that call attention to the decor itself, rather than the limited space.

Selecting the right furniture and paint will only get you so far. Effectively arranging the space is equally important. An open feel is crucial. Survey the lines of the room. If there are visual or physical blocks that make the space difficult the navigate, address them. While it may not be possible to have large areas that are free of furniture, choosing narrow pieces can be a great option, especially if the furnishings are space-enhancing, such as the acrylic coffee tables below.

Most contemporary homes these days have embraced gray with glee, and you can find almost every second home clad in one of the many shades of gray. But you can set your home apart from the pack by adding pops of beautiful and refreshing yellow that exemplify the summer and will serve you well all year long as well. Classy, modern and yet playful, this combination offers the ideal balance between the sophisticated and the snazzy!

I say this because when I think of a purple room, immediately a teenage girls dare ye enter bedroom comes to mind. In it she has zebra bedding, with plush fuzzy purple pillows and synthetic purple curtains that have never been opened bid enter to the light of day. Bright purple strings of purple hand in place of closet doors and yes, a lava lamp-remember those fire hazards- decorates her cluttered dresser. But now, when I think of a purple room, there is an air of sophisticated glamour that wipes out the memory of the tacky zebralicious room.

A bookshelf can look cluttered. If you don’t need to access its contents on a regular basis, hang a large piece of art from the shelves, as shown in the next space designed by John Dransfield and Geoffrey Ross. Not only is this technique a great way to maximize limited wall space, it stylishly hides the shelf’s contents. In fact, try placing paperwork or other unsightly items behind the canvas!

I once was of the opinion that gold and silver should rarely be room-mates. Gold and silver bangles were what set me off. They seemed to me to be from the complete opposite sides of the spectrum, but this vibrant color of purple can unite all other royal and rich colors.
