How to add personality to your neutral space

It’s a problem riddling America. People just keep it too “safe” design-wise and end up in neutral town. That’s totally fine if that matches your personality, but it can end up looking way more boring than you are if it doesn’t. And as a person who loves color, it generally makes me sad and underwhelmed. Sure, I love a bright white room, but I don’t love a cream on ivory on taupe room — and yet it’s so easy to find ourselves living in that color palette because making big color choices can be scary.

In this video I show you how to add color and personality to your neutral space. When I started with this apartment it looked like this:

  1. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is something not enough folks are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy I found this during my search for something regarding this.|
