We're at the end of spring, and everything outside has come alive, so chances are you want your interiors to reflect that. You're not alone if you've been considering changing up your color palette.

When a room is lifeless and drab, the first thing that jumps to mind is to add color. However, adding color does not always necessitate the use of paint. Throw away the paintbrush, as well as the mess it creates!

Painting is messy, as we all know, and renters may not even have the opportunity to consider this option. There's a way to add splashes of color into any environment, regardless of your comfort level.

Are you afraid of being too daring? Don't be. Think rugs, accessories, art, and even flora. All of these can be used to give your home just the appropriate amount of color.

Don't get us wrong: we're not advocating that you leave your walls unpainted. However, if you want to add color to your room without taking out the paint roller and blue tape, we have a few ideas for you. Take a look at these eight coloring suggestions for your house, whether it's as basic as adding a plant or achieving the ideal balance with a variety of vivid colors.

Look for a colorful rug

To add some interest underfoot, use a rug with a bright pattern or detailing. A cheerful rug is a great way to ease into a brighter design while also hiding dirt and clutter. You can use this strategy to add more colors while keeping the basic color scheme. A vibrant rug may also drastically alter the vibe of a space.

Incorporate flowers and plants

Never underestimate the power of flowers and plants!

A vibrantly colored floral arrangement or house plants will not only offer an organic touch to your area but also a vibrant tint. Plants are also temporary and moveable, so you may try out different settings for your arrangement until you discover one where you feel most at ease.

Bright, colorful flowers are the simplest and most versatile way to bring a bit of color to your environment. A vase or large bowl of flowers, whether an extravagant arrangement or a basic grouping, will instantly transform your room. For maximum impact, place them on the coffee table or in the kitchen. Furthermore, you can switch up the hues of your flowers on a regular basis and according to the season!

Design with removable wallpaper

Removable wallpaper is the option to use if you want to make a strong statement. But don't worry, your landlord would approve of this one! It's also simple to use because it's essentially stick-and-peel! Peel and stick wallpaper is a quick and easy way to update your home's decor, and it's a lot less work than painting.

Plus, there are so many low-cost and simple-to-install choices available! When it comes to applying wallpaper, there are no limitations. Accent walls, bookshelves, and door panels are all great ways to inject a splash of color and personality into a room.

Alternatively, you may try wallpapering the ceiling. With peel-and-stick wallpaper, you can take a chance and try something innovative. Order a couple of different samples, stick them on your ceiling, and wait a few days. Give the ceiling a try — it's the most underused wall in the room.

If you wish to use temporary wallpaper, there are a few things you should know. It works best on flat surfaces, and the removable wallpaper should be applied slowly. Also, don't be afraid to damage your walls — it won't leave any residue!

Opt for a fleece throw

Fleece wraps and couch blankets aren't just for keeping warm; they're also fantastic for adding color. They may be wonderful style and statement makers in addition to being basic yet utilitarian. Not to mention the fact that you can drape them over anything!

Throw some pillows

Throw pillows might be difficult for some individuals to work with. With all the mixing and matching that has to be done, these tiny squares of style are sometimes missed and even terrify people. However, many people are unaware that switching up the throw pillows is one of the easiest and quickest ways to bring color into a space.

Refreshing your color palette using new textiles (blankets, throw pillows, etc.) is a great and cost-effective way to do it, similar to changing your area rug.

Instead of matching your cushions to the color of the area rug, look for colors in the curtains or artwork. Make a dramatic statement to completely transform the appearance and feel of the area.

Shop for a bright new sofa or chair

Bringing in a new couch or chair allows you to kill two birds with one stone by renovating your house while also stimulating the room with fresh new hues.

If you're going to shop for a new couch or a chair, don't be scared to go with a bright hue. The juxtaposition may be intriguing and lovely, especially if you have a historical frame and a bright modern hue.

Don’t forget the art print

Art prints and wall art in general, when chosen wisely, may furnish a whole space. So, if you want to make a statement and make a place more bright and energetic, choose an art print that will do the work for you!

Introduce bursts of color into your room with artwork and photographs if you like to keep your furnishings and accessories monochrome. Keeping the space basic will allow your artwork to take center stage and create a gallery-like atmosphere with little outside distractions. Don't be scared to use bold prints and mixed media collages in your designs.

Reflect the light and color

Lighting has the potential to bring attention to the objects you already have in your home. Good lighting may assist you to showcase your present décors, such as a beloved piece of art or a favorite plant. Lighting determines what stands out in your home, so position a lamp near that unique wall art to guarantee it gets the attention it deserves. Don't be afraid to try out different lighting colors and even other types of illumination. Using lights behind your curtains, for example, may make even the dullest drapes shine out.

Also, consider hanging a giant mirror on that large, blank, and uninteresting wall. Select a mirror with a unique frame. If the frame of your mirror is still too simple, add cording or braid, paint it in a bright color, or personalize it into a DIY pattern. You don't have to paint any wall to bring extra color to your living room – the mirror will reflect vast swathes of color and light from around the room.

In conclusion

Don't worry if you're tired of your rental's plain and dull walls but can't paint them! There are many fantastic things available now to add color and design to your walls. The choices are infinite, from peel-and-stick wallpaper to standard plant hanging!

Regardless of whether you choose to apply any of the above recommendations or not, it is quite easy to add major bursts of color to your apartment without making permanent alterations or losing your security deposit.
