Breaking Up A Bold Color

Breaking Up A Bold Color

110909color-01.jpgWe remember quite vividly one long (and labor intensive) weekend when the study of our childhood home received a new coat of paint. The original color turned out to be a very wrong shade of green, so we got put to work re-painting the entire room over the course of two days...

Looking back, we remember kind of liking the retro green color, but it was one shade that the rest of the family couldn't live with. And while we had the time and team support to repaint the entire room, not everyone has those resources so easily available. Instead of spending countless hours (and labor-intensive coats) re-painting every inch, we think a better alternative would be to break up the bold color. You could hang artwork to draw the eye away from the intensity of the walls. Mirrors would also be a great option because of their reflective quality. Introducing hanging or potted plants to a colorful room would also help settle things down a bit and add warmth to the space.

Apartment Therapy readers, how do you break up a bold wall of color in your home?
