Apply Temporary Wallpaper

Temporary wallpaper is a fun and easy way to incorporate color and patterns into your space! Not to mention, it doesn’t damage the walls or ruin the paint. Not sure where to use yours? Apply it to your backsplash, bedroom, or bathroom! On one wall, on all walls, below a chair rail – Your apartment is your temporary wallpaper oyster!

Incorporate Plants

Adding plants and flowers into your home is an extremely easy way to incorporate color into your space. They not only give life to the space but are easy to swap around.

Create a Gallery Wall

Gallery walls are a great way to add personality to your space, as well as color! Opt for colorful paintings, decor, fabrics, and photos to help make your space more colorful. Floating shelves with colorful books are a great option, too!

Add a Colorful Rug

Are the floors in your home too neutral for your taste? Lay down a colorful rug! Long, chic rugs draw the eye to the floor and add spunk to a space.
