How To Paint Our Railroad Apartment?

Good Questions

Pin it button big

Q: My boyfriend and I live in a small railroad apartment in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. I never anticipated we would live here for any extended period of time, but now it has been over two years and we just signed a lease for another two. I have always wanted to paint our apartment, but I'm not sure how to do it with our layout. We don't have any doors at all separating the four rooms. I tried to find inspiration in apartments with a similar set-up, but it doesn't seem to be out there. Are there any posts about this already? I would love some advice on how to keep a nice flow, but without having to paint the entire apartment the same color. Thank you in advance!
