Paint one wall
If you want an instant makeover, just paint one wall of your living room or any given space. This changes the focal point of the space without getting into a major decorating project. If your room has a niche, that too could be the perfect choice for extra colour. You can choose a bold, contrasting colour or a subtle tone darker than the tone of the other walls. Any change in colour will add interest and a colour splash!
Play with colourful soft furnishings
Nothing adds colour like soft furnishings like cushions and throws aesthetically placed on furniture. One could choose solid colours for a floral sofa or chair, or colourful, patterned cushions for a solid colour chair or sofa, these simple additions will add vibrancy.
A colourful piece of art placed in a living room not only adds a decorative touch, but also introduces tones, hues and shapes you might not be able to use in a larger area.
