Using Bold Colors

Some people shy away from using bold colors in a small space thinking it will make the room feel smaller. Used in small doses, bold colors can add a great accent to the room. In the top picture you may be asking where is the bold color? Black. Black on the tile and door handle add a nice contrast to the high whites that are normally found in a bath. Don't be afraid to use your favorite bold colors. Mix it up experiment! You'll be glad you did!

I love that fresh green little bedroom with the built out closet. We live a l00 year old farmhouse with practically NO closets and that design would work well for one of our bedrooms. I already have 2 antique twin beds!

So interesting that the mirror's not directly above the sink. Smart.

I agree with you. I am hand painting a buffalo plaid pattern in my bathroom and it's amazing how big it looks.

Hi!
It´s my first time here at your blog - and I just fell in love with the pictures you have selected.
I also have a small house, and I think it´s easier to decorate when I need to figure out solutions that have to work in a limited space. When I´m given a large room that´s completely empty I don´t know where to start.
We´ve just moved in to our small house and we´ve got alot of renovating and decorating ahead of us but it´s going to be so much fun!
Soon we will have a new bathroom in our basement and then we are going to paint our house!
I have looked through all of your pictures - I just couldn´t stop!
I hope you have a great weekend with alot of sun!
Love Annika

Hi. You give a lot of good advice on your blog. You should be linking to the sources of the pictures, unless these are all your work. Is that the case?

Annette said...

How fun - I just painted that green color at the last picture in my bedroom! And in fact I made a post about the color on my blog te other day.
