Keep It Light: Using Color in A Small Space

Keep It Light: Using Color in A Small Space

Say you've got a kitchen/dining room combination in your apartment, and you want to incorporate color without overwhelming the small space. Based on Adrienne's survey on Bright Pops of Colors last week, this solution featured in House to Home starts with a neutral base, like these bright white and blonde wood tones layered underneath bright hues of blue, pink, and green...

Some tips on achieve this look:
• Even if your floor isn't white, having the walls and trim white will help keep the room looking light and airy. Need extra storage space? Ikea's Akurum line can be mounted on the wall waist-level and used as a sideboard.

• Keep light fixtures neutral: We love the airiness of the these clear glass domes from Baileys Home & Garden, Ikea's 365+ Brasa Pendant Lamp, or Pottery Barn's Rustic Glass Pendant.
