Chi/Complements Home Interiors

Sometimes the easiest way to update a dull area in your home is to add a pop of color. There are several ways to do this without breaking the bank.

For example, if you’re accustomed to looking at the same old bookcase, how about painting it a neutral white, gray or cream and then painting the interior a vivid eye-catching pink, teal or purple to set off what’s displayed inside. Favorite objects, framed pictures and even books become part of the decoration.

Try installing patterned wallpaper to the interior of a blah or uninspired bookcase or cabinet to show off your personality. The element of surprise is half the fun.

You can also try a quick color change to a painted piece of furniture. Not only will it feel fresh and new, but it will also add dimension and interest to any room, especially a small one.

By changing out tired throw pillows and throws on your sofa and chairs, you can add a lot of energy to a room. Find a color you love and add it to the mix. Orange and gray give a room warmth and elegance. Pink, chartreuse and gray will add feminine energy and excitement. Now, be bold and paint one wall an accent color to unify the look.

That little extra color may be exactly what your room needs to feel luxurious and chic. But, if using color intimidates you, call an interior designer at Chi in Bend to help you pull the room together.
